Bob Marley I Shot The Sheriff Mp3 Download:

Listen & Download I Shot The Sheriff, a song which was made ultra-famous in 1974 when Eric Clapton released a cover of it on his album 461 Ocean Boulevard. lapton’s rendition reached the number one spot on the Billboard Hot 100, and does get some credit for helping to spread the word about Bob Marley and reggae music in general.

The lyrics here are about shooting the Sheriff John Brown, but later being blamed for the killing of the deputy, which Marley himself explains are about justice. This is also the final single that Bob Marley recorded with Peter Tosh and Bunny Wailer before each of them left to embark on their own respective solo careers.

LYRICS

[Chorus]
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, ooh

[Verse 1]
Yeah, all around in my home town
They’re trying to track me down, yeah
They say they want to bring me in guilty
For the killing of a deputy
For the life of a deputy
But I say
Oh, now, now, oh

[Chorus]
I shot the sheriff, the sheriff
But I swear it was in self-defense, oh no
Ooh, ooh, ooh, yeah
I say, I shot the sherriff, oh Lord
And they say it is a capital offense, yeah
Ooh, ooh, ooh, yeah

[Verse 2]
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 they grow
And so, and so
Read it in the news

[Chorus]
I shot the sheriff, oh Lord
But I swear it was in self-defense
Where was the deputy? Ooh, ooh, ooh
I say, I shot the sheriff
But I swear it was in self-defense, yeah
Ooh-ooh

[Verse 3]
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 (pay, pay, pay, pay, pay)

[Chorus]
I shot the sheriff
But I say, but I didn’t shoot no deputy
I didn’t shoot no deputy, oh no, ooh, ooh, ooh
I shot the sheriff, I did
But I didn’t shoot no deputy, oh
Ooh, ooh, ooh

[Verse 4]
Reflexes had 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

[Outro]
I say
I-I-I, I shot the sheriff
Lord, I didn’t shot the deputy, no
Yeah, I-I shot the sheriff
But I didn’t shoot no deputy, yeah, so, yeah
