I shot the sheriff
But I didnt shoot no deputy, ooh, ooh, oo-ooh.)
Yeah! all around in my home town,
Theyre tryin to track me down;They say they want to bring me in guilty
For the killing of a deputy,For the life of a deputy.
But I say: I shot the sheriff - oh, lord! -
(and they say it is a capital offence.)
Yeah! (ooh, ooh, oo-oh) yeah!
Sheriff john brown always hated me,
For what, I dont know,Every time I plant a seed,
He said kill it before it grow ,He said kill them before they grow.
And so:Read it in the news:
(I shot the sheriff.) oh, lord!
(but I swear it was in self-defence.)
Where was the deputy? (oo-oo-oh)
I say: I shot the sheriff,
But I swear it was in selfdefence. (oo-oh) yeah!
Freedom came my way one day,And I started out of town, yeah!
All of a sudden I saw sheriff john brown,Aiming to shoot me down,
So I shot - I shot - I shot him down and I say:
If I am guilty I will pay.(I shot the sheriff,)
But I say (but I didnt shoot no deputy),
I didnt shoot no deputy (oh, no-oh), oh no!
(I shot the sheriff.) i did!,But I didnt shoot no deputy. oh! (oo-oo-ooh)
Reflexes had got the better of me,And what is to be must be:
Every day the bucket a-go a well,
One day the bottom a-go drop out,One day the bottom a-go drop out.
I say:
I - I - I - I shot the sheriff.Lord, I didnt shot the deputy. yeah!
I - I (shot the sheriff) -But I didnt shoot no deputy, yeah! no, yeah!
