I Shot The Sheriff chords
Eric Clapton 1974 (Bob Marley 1973)

Capo I

F#m               Bm                        F#m
I shot the sheriff, but I did not shoot the deputy.
F#m               Bm                        F#m
I shot the sheriff, but I did not shoot the deputy.

D    Dmaj7       F#m
All around in my home town,
D                 Dmaj7    F#m
they're trying to track me down.
D                     Dmaj7       F#m
They say they want to bring me in guilty,
        D            Dmaj7 F#m
for the killing of a depu  ty
        D         Dmaj7 F#m
For the life of a depu  ty.

But I say:

F#m Bm F#m

F#m               Bm                      F#m
I shot the sheriff, but I swear it was in self-defense.
F#m               Bm                     F#m
I shot the sheriff, and they say it is a capital offense.

D            Dmaj7        F#m
Sheriff John Brown always hated me;
    D      Dmaj7 F#m
for what I don't know.
D                 Dmaj7   F#m
Every time that I plant a seed,
          D         Dmaj7   F#m
he said, "Kill it before it grows."
          D         Dma7    F#m
He said, "Kill it before it grows."

I say:

F#m Bm F#m

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

D       Dmaj7       F#m
Freedom came my way one day
      D       Dmaj7  F#m
And I started out of town.
D                     Dmaj7        F#m
All of a sudden I see sheriff John Brown
D         Dmaj7    F#m
Aiming to shoot me down.
     D       Dmaj7    F#m
So I shot, I shot him down.

I say:

F#m Bm F#m

F#m               Bm                        F#m
I shot the sheriff, but I did not shoot the deputy.
F#m               Bm                        F#m
I shot the sheriff, but I did not shoot the deputy.

D                Dmaj7     F#m
Reflexes got the better of me
D              Dmaj7   F#m
And what is to be must be.
D             Dmaj7              F#m
Every day the bucket goes to the well,
D           Dmaj7            F#m
one day the bottom will drop out,
     D           Dmaj7            F#m
Yes, one day the bottom will drop out.

But I say:

F#m Bm F#m


F#m               Bm                        F#m
I shot the sheriff, but I did not shoot the deputy.
F#m               Bm                       F#m
I shot the sheriff, but I did not shoot no deputy. . . .
