Bob Marley - I Shot The Sheriff

Bob Marley- I shot the sheriff

"I want to say 'I shot the police' but the government would have made a fuss so I said 'I shot the sheriff' instead… but it's the same idea: justice." - Bob Marley
+Hotdogninja Basically Clapton did it better. Just saying.
You've got a problem with the legitimate authorities? I've got a problem with the illegitimate gangsters. 
I've got a problem with the bandits and outlaws of all kinds, in a democracy. 
I'm for the honest people, in a democracy. 
Ok, what Marley is saying here is that he and the sheriff had a deal, Marley used to grow his stuff and the sheriff used to have his cut on what Marley use to deal on, but the deputy who is close friend of the sheriff somehow found out that the sheriff was a crook cop and he also wanted his share or else he would talk. So the sheriff blackmailed Marley on not growing that weed and stay low until he the deputy take care of business. Sheriff invite the deputy for a talk and he kills the deputy, at that particularly moment Marley saw the killing, once the sheriff realize that now Marley is now an eye witness, he try to shot Marley, Marley was quicker than him and shot him.
Its much more political than that, watch the Marley movie, its deep politically about Jamaica, Bob Marley was a very powerful influential figure, they tried to kill him
I'm gonna be lame and say that supernatural brought me here. I completely forgot about this song and then they referenced it in supernatural and i had to listen to it again XD

Bob Marley - I Shot The Sheriff
🎶But I didn't shoot the deputy🎶
Love this song!!! Only thee original!! Jah blessings
I went back in time and shot a real sherrif. How? The Tardis :3
Eric Clapton sang this song before Bob Marley....
WRONG.. Bob Marley wrote and produced this song (as reggae).  Eric Clapton got permission and song it a year later as a "blues" type song.
+Tesia Payne we...we went over this...multiple times...
Ay German guy you obviously don't know good music and can't feel the love and meaning lol do you even got a soul bro lol
Bob's music is great, but what is even greater is his positive messages for Humanity. A better world full of Peace and Love is definitely possible. The first step to creating it is showing people The Truth, which inspires change. That is the reason why "The Truth Contest" website was created. To find, define, and spread The Truth. It will benefit Humanity in every way. So check it out and pass it on :)
695 idiots have sense of "Soul" nether less possess one.

I wish this song could be mixed with Clapton's version. I like Marley's verse singing more, but I prefer Clapton's chorus. Also the bass in this song is better, but obviously the guitar in Clapton's version is better. Either way great song. 
You guys should look up.... I shot the Sheriff by We butter the bread with butter
This song is about birth control
I thought this was Eric Clapton's song. Didn't realize that Bob Marley did it first
+Thykuss the br speack diferent, that is spanish, que boludo este negro

A legend that was lost way too soon so to hell with what anybody thinks about his music all his music had meaning to it.

I Shot The Sheriff Bob Marley
No disrespect to Marley, he is a legend, and a legacy that left us way too early, but I prefer Eric Clapton's later version of this song over Marley's original. It's just my personal opinion Clapton's version had a better tune to it. Still Marley deserves credit for writing one of the greatest and most memorable songs ever. But when it came to the vocal aspect of it, Clapton just rocked it and gave it the energy and edge the song needed in order to be memorable.
