I SHOT THE SHERIFF (BOB MARLEY)

 

 Am                         Dm                                 Am    Am7

I shot the Sheriff, but I did not shoot the deputy

Am                         Dm                                 Am    Am7
I shot the Sheriff, but I didn't shoot the deputy

Fmag7 Em7           Am            Fmag7               Em7           Am
All ar   ound in my hometown, they're trying to track me down

Fmag7                         Em7           Am           
They say they want to bring me in guilty

              Fmag7   Em7   Am           
For the killing of a dep  uty

             Fmag7   Em7   Am           
for the life of a deputy, but I say:
 


I shot the Sheriff, but I swear it was in self-defense
I shot the Sheriff, but I swear it was in self-defense
Sheriff John Brown always hated me, for what I don't know
Every time that I plant a seed
He said: "Kill it before it grows!"
He sais: "Kill it before it grows!" But I say:

I shot the Sheriff, but I swear it was in self-defense
I shot the Sheriff, but I swear it was in self-defense
Freedom came my way one day, and I started out of town
All of a sudden, I see sheriff John Brown
Aiming to shoot me down
So I shot, I shot him down, but I say:

I shot the Sheriff, but I swear it was in self-defense
I shot the Sheriff, but I swear it was in self-defense
Reflexes got the better of me, and what is to be must be
Every day, the bucket goes to the well
But one day the bottom will drop out
Yes one day the bottom will drop out, but I say:

I shot the Sheriff, but I swear it was in self-defense
I shot the Sheriff, but I swear it was in self-defense
