facebook Bob Marley is flying on a airplane to Jamaica. WallInfoPhotosSongs/VideosBob MarleyLogout Wall InfoPhotosSongs/Videos Write something… Share Information Friends Which one of my songs is your favorite? Wall InfoPhotosSongs/Videos Photo Here I would have to say “I shot the Sheriff” which you recorded in 1973. From the album “Burnin”. Wow, I’m impressed by your knowledge of my songs and recording years. “I Shot the Sheriff” is also one of my favorite songs. Why do you like it? I like it because of its slow tempo and reggae genre. The dynamics of the song weren’t to loud like screaming, but weren’t to soft like a whisper. The ambiguous mellow mood also added a difference from many other songs. I have always been wondering what the song was about, could you tell me? The song is about a man, who I’m singing in the view of, who shot the sheriff John Brown, who hates him, and is wrongly accused of killing the deputy. The song also has deeper messages about racism and oppression of black people. Here are some lyrics. “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! 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.
