[Chorus 1]
F#m
 I shot the sheriff,
Bm                     F#m
 But I didn't shoot no deputy, oh no! Oh!
F#m
 I shot the sheriff,
Bm                     F#m
 But I didn't shoot no deputy. Ooh, ooh, oo-ooh.

[Verse 1]
D     C#m7      F#m
 All a-round in my home town,
        D        C#m7      F#m
They're tryin' to track me down;
D             C#m7                 F#m
 They say they want to bring me in guilty,
        D           C#m7  F#m
For the killing of a depu-ty,
        D        C#m7 F#m
For the life of a dep-uty. But I say...

[Chorus 2]
F#m
 I shot the sheriff,
Bm                     F#m
 But I swear it was in self-defence. (Oh, no! Yeah!)
       F#m                     Bm
I say; I shot the sheriff, oh Lord!
                     F#m
And they say it is a capital offence. Yeah!

[Verse 2]
D       C#m7               F#m
 Sheriff John Brown always hated me,
    D     C#m7      F#m
For what... I don't know.
      D     C#m7     F#m
Every time I plant a seed,
        D         C#m7     F#m
He said kill it be-fore it grow,
        D           C#m7       F#m
He said kill them be-fore they grow. And so, and so...

 But I swear it was in self-defence. I say;
F#m
 I shot the sheriff,
Bm                     F#m
 But I swear it was in self-defence. (Yeah!)

[Verse 3]
D               C#m7     F#m
 Freedom came my way one day,
      D      C#m7     F#m
And I started, out of town, yeah!
D        C#m7          F#m
 All of a sudden I saw Sheriff John Brown,
D         C#m7      F#m
 Aiming to shoot me down,
     D      C#m7              F#m
So I shot, I shot, I shot him down. And I say...

[Verse 4]
   D             C#m7       F#m
Re-flexes had the better of me,
    D         C#m7     F#m
And what is to be must be.
      D       C#m7           F#m
Every day, the bucket a-go a-well,
D           C#m7         F#m
 One day the bottom a-go drop out,
D           C#m7         F#m
 One day the bottom a-go drop out.
