Am              Dm                          Am

Oh, no, oh
Am                 Dm                        Am
I shot the sheriff, but I didn't shoot no deputy
Ooh, ooh, ooh Yeah

chorus

Fmaj7        Em7         Am7
All around in my hometown
Fmaj7           Em7              Am7
They're tryin' to track me down, yeah
Fmaj7           Em7              Am7
They say they want to bring me in guilty
Fmaj7            Em7               Am7
For the killing of a deputy, for the life of a deputy
Fmaj7            Em7               Am7

chorus

Oh, I shot the sheriff, but I swear it was in self defense
Ooh, ooh, ooh
I said, I shot the sheriff, Oh Lord
And they say it is a capital offense
Ooh, ooh, ooh
Hear this

chorus

Sheriff John Brown always hated me
For what I don't know
Ev'ry time I plant a seed
He said, "Kill it before it grows."
He said, "Kill them before they grow."

And so, oh, now, now,
Read it in the news

I shot the sheriff, but I swear it was in self defense
Ooh, ooh, ooh
Where was the deputy?
I said I shot the sheriff but I swear it was in self defense

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 didn't shoot no deputy
Ooh, no, oh
I shot the sheriff, but I didn't shoot no deputy
Ooo, ooo, ooh

Reflexes had the better of me
And what is to be must be
Ev'ry 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, ...
