I shot the Sheriff but I didn’t shoot no deputy
I shot the Sheriff but I didn’t shoot no deputy
All around in my hometown
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 (riff)

I shot the Sheriff but I swear it was in self-defence
I shot the Sheriff and they say it is a capital offence
Sheriff John Brown always hated me
For what I don’t know
Every time I plant a seed
He said kill it before it grows
He said kill them before they grow And so (riff)

I shot the Sheriff but I swear it was in self-defence
I shot the Sheriff but I swear it was in self-defence
Freedom came my way one day
And I started out of town
All of a sudden I saw Sheriff John Brown
Aiming to shoot me down
So I shot I shot I shot him down But I say (riff)

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
One day the bottom will drop out I say (riff)

I shot the Sheriff but I did not shoot the deputy
I shot the Sheriff but I did not shoot no deputy
