I shot the sheriff,

But I didn’t shoot no deputy, oh no! Oh!

I shot the sheriff,

But I didn’t shoot no deputy. Ooh, ooh, oo-ooh.

All around in my home town,

They’re tryin’ 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-defence. (Oh, no! Yeah!)

I say; I shot the sheriff, oh Lord!

And they say it is a capital offence. Yeah!

Sheriff John Brown always hated me,

For what…I don’t know.

Every time I plant a seed,

He said kill it before it grow,

He said kill them before it grow. And so:

(Read it in the news!)

I shot the sheriff,

But I swear it was in self-defence. (Oh, no! Yeah!)

I shot the sheriff,

But I swear it was in self-defence. (Oh, no! Yeah!)

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 didn’t shoot no deputy, oh no! Oh!

I shot the sheriff,

But I didn’t shoot no deputy. Ooh, ooh, oo-ooh.

Reflexes had got the better of me,

And what is to be must be;

Every 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-I-I shot the sheriff,

Lord, I didn’t shot the deputy. Yeah!

I-I…(shot the sheriff),

But I didn’t shoot no deputy. Yeah! So, yeah!
