Titel: I shot the sherrif
Auteur: Bob Marley
Songtext:

I shot the sheriff, but I didn't 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 swear it was in selfdefence
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 I planted 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 selfdefence
I shot the sheriff, but I swear it was in selfdefence
Freedom came to my way one day, and I started out of town
All of sudden, I see sheriff John Brown aiming to shoot me down
So I shot, I shot him down
But I say

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
