Lyrics I Shot the Sheriff

All around in my home town
They're tryin' to track me down, yeah
They say they want to bring me in guilty
For the killing of a deputy for the life of a deputy
But I say
Oh now now, oh
The sheriff, no no, yeah
I say, I shot the sheriff
Oh Lord
Oh now
Yeah yeah, yes
Sheriff John Brown always hated me
For what?
I don't know
Every time
I plant a seed
He said kill it before it grow
He said kill them before they grow
And so
And so
Read it in the news
Oh Lord
Where was the deputy?
I say, I shot the sheriff
But I swear it was in self-defence, 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
But I say
I didn't shoot no deputy, no
I did
Oh, yeah
Reflexes had the better of me
And what is to be must be
Every day the bucket ago a well
One day the bottom ago drop out
One day the bottom ago drop out
I say
I, I, I
I shot the sheriff
Lord, I didn't shot the deputy no
I, I
But I didn't shoot no deputy
So, yeah
