I shot the Sheriff, but I did not shoot the deputy
I shot the Sheriff, but I didn't shoot the 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:
I shot the Sheriff, but I did not shoot the deputy
I shot the Sheriff, but I didn't shoot the deputy

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 it before it grows!" But 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, but I say:
Orgel-Solo / Break 3 Takte

I shot the Sheriff, but I didn't shoot the deputy,
I shot the Sheriff, but I didn't 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 no deputy
I shot the Sheriff, but I did not shoot no deputy
Instr.
