D#     Dm         Gm
All around in my home town
D#               Dm         Gm
They're trying to track me down
D#                Dm             Gm
They say they want to bring me in guilty
D#           Dm     Gm
For the killing of a deputy

For the life of a deputy    But I say! (RIFF 1)

Sheriff John Brown always hated me
D#     Dm         Gm
For what I don't know
D#     Dm          Gm
Every time that I plant a seed
D#             Dm         Gm
He said "Kill it before it grows"
D#             Dm         Gm
He said "Kill it before it grows"   I say!  (RIFF 1)

Freedom came my way one day
D#      Dm           Gm
And I started out of town, yeah
D#        Dm           Gm
All of a sudden I see sheriff John Brown

Aiming to shoot me down

So I shot, I shot him down    I say!  (RIFF 1)

D#     Dm         Gm
Reflexes got the better of me
D#     Dm         Gm
And what is to be must be
D#     Dm             Gm
Every day the bucket falls to the well
D#              Dm          Gm
But one day the bottom will drop out
D#        Dm                Gm
Yes, one day the bottom will drop out   But I say! (RIFF 1)

I shot the sheriff, but I did not shoot the deputy, oh no

I shot the sheriff, but I did not shoot no deputy, oh no
