Testo i shot the sheriff - bob marley

I shot the sheriff
but I did not shoot the deputy.

I shot the sheriff
but I did not shoot the deputy.



All around in my home town

They're trying to track me down.

They say they want to bring me in guilty

For the killing of a deputy


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
and they say it is a capital offense.



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 said
Kill them before they grow.


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.

I say:



I shot the sheriff
but I did not shoot the deputy.

I shot the sheriff
but I did not shoot the deputy.



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 did not shoot the deputy
oh no.

I shot the sheriff
but I did not shoot the deputy
oh no
