[INTRO] F#m Bm

       F#m              Bm                     F#m
I shot the sheriff, but I didn't shoot no deputy,
       F#m              Bm                     F#m
I shot the sheriff, but I didn't shoot no deputy,


 D       C#m        F#m
All around in my home town,
 D       C#m        F#m
They're tryin' to track me down;
 D       C#m        F#m
They say they want to bring me in guilty
 D       C#m        F#m
For the killing of a deputy,
 D       C#m        F#m
For the life of a deputy, but I say:


       F#m              Bm                     F#m
I shot the sheriff, but I swear it was in selfdefence
       F#m              Bm                     F#m
I shot the sheriff, and they say it is a capital offence


 D       C#m        F#m
Sheriff John Brown always hated me,
 D       C#m        F#m
For what, I don't know:
 D       C#m        F#m
Every time I plant a seed,
 D       C#m        F#m
He said kill it before it grow
 D       C#m        F#m
He said kill them before they grow, and so


       F#m              Bm                     F#m
I shot the sheriff, but I swear it was in self-defence
       F#m              Bm                     F#m
I shot the sheriff, but I swear it was in selfdefence.


 D       C#m        F#m
Freedom came my way one day
 D       C#m        F#m
And I started out of town, yeah!
 D       C#m        F#m
All of a sudden I saw sheriff John Brown
 D       C#m        F#m
Aiming to shoot me down,
 D       C#m        F#m
So I shot - I shot - I shot him down, and I say
           F#m
If I am guilty I will pay.


       F#m              Bm                     F#m
I shot the sheriff, but I didn't shoot no deputy,
       F#m              Bm                     F#m
I shot the sheriff, but I didn't shoot no deputy,


 D       C#m        F#m
Reflexes had got the better of me
 D       C#m        F#m
And what is to be must be:
 D       C#m        F#m
Every day the bucket a-go a well,
 D       C#m        F#m
One day the bottom a-go drop out,
 D       C#m        F#m
One day the bottom a-go drop out, I say
