I Shot the Sheriff

[Capo 3]

I shot the sheriff but I did not shoot the deputy
I shot the sheriff but I did not shoot the deputy

/ Em - Am7 - Em - - - / /

All around in my home town
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

/ C Bm7 Em - / / / / / Em - - - /

I shot the sheriff but I swear it was in self-defense
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 that I plant a seed
