  • warren g de bir cover ını yapmıştır bu şarkının ...
  • en iyi versiyonu jaco pastorius'a aittir zannımca.
  • bob marley - burnin 'den bir şarkı.

    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, oo-ooh.)
    yeah! all around in my home town,
    they're tryin' 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:

    oh, now, now. oh!
    (i shot the sheriff.) - the sheriff.
    (but i swear it was in selfdefence.)
    oh, no! (ooh, ooh, oo-oh) yeah!
    i say: i shot the sheriff - oh, lord! -
    (and they say it is a capital offence.)
    yeah! (ooh, ooh, oo-oh) yeah!

    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:

    read it in the news:
    (i shot the sheriff.) oh, lord!
    (but i swear it was in self-defence.)
    where was the deputy? (oo-oo-oh)
    i say: i shot the sheriff,
    but i swear it was in selfdefence. (oo-oh) yeah!

    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.

    (i shot the sheriff,)
    but i say (but i didn't shoot no deputy),
    i didn't shoot no deputy (oh, no-oh), oh no!
    (i shot the sheriff.) i did!
    but i didn't shoot no deputy. oh! (oo-oo-ooh)

    reflexes had got 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.
    i say:

    i - i - i - i shot the sheriff.
    lord, i didn't shot the deputy. yeah!
    i - i (shot the sheriff) -
    but i didn't shoot no deputy, yeah! no, yeah!
