I Shot the Sheriff

Bob Marley

 GmGm
 I shot the sheriff,

 CmCmGmGmGmGm
 but I did not shoot the deputy. ====== 


 EbDmGmGm
 All around in my home town  

 EbDmGmGm
they're trying to track me down.  

 EbDmGmGm
They say they want to bring me in guilty  

 EbDmGmGm
for the killing of a deputy,=== 

 EbDm7GmGm
for the killing of a deputy,=== 

 GmGmGmGm
But I say: ========= 

refrain2(deux fois)


I shot the sheriff,

but I swear it was in selfdefence.


Sheriff John Brown always hated me

for what I don't know.

Ev'ry time that I plant a seed

he said "Kill it before it grow," (deux fois)

But I say:

(refrain2)

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:

(refrain1)

Reflexes got the better of me

and what is to be must be.

Ev'ry 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:
