+Alexander Locke I've never really been a fan of bob marley or just reggae music in general. I remember hearing this song in high school about 2 years ago but I forgot about it haha

Can't post I Shot The Sheriff without paying homage to the Legend that wrote it! 🎶🎤 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 I shot the sheriff👮 But I swear it was in self defense Oh, no! (Ooh, ooh, oo-oh) Yeah! I shot the sheriff And they say it is a capital offense 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.🎶🎵

What I take from this song is that sheriffs are the ones who make the calls. Deputies are the ones who follow the order. Marley wants to shoot the one who threatens him, not the one who is just doing as he/she's told.

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.

Completely correct, of course there's always a broader theme to music but yes that's exactly what he's saying, just in a round about way at times and more upfront in others. Kudos most ppl don't know that

Cool song. I really don't think weed is bad, and I would like it to be legalised here in England, but I don't understand how places where it is legalised work, because I don't think anyone should work, drive, use tools, or machinery when they're high.

"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

+Jair Berg Music has meaning and power sure, but that's strong music, powerful, able to move mountains, something patriotic, etc. This is just a lot higher pitched than Eric if anything his carries the message better.

(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 self defense.) Oh, no! (Oh, oh, oh) Yeah! I say: I shot the sheriff oh, Lord!  (And they say it is a capital offense.) Yeah! (oh, oh, 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-defense.) Where was the deputy? (oh) I say, I shot the sheriff, But I swear it was in self defense. (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! (oh) 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. No! I, I (shot the sheriff) But I didn't shoot no deputy, yeah! So, yeah! (Marley 1973)

Bob Marley realizes sheriff is illuminate, tells deputy, deputy tries to kill sherif in the street. But the sherif shoots him, bobs ready to blow him away and shoots em with his m16a2. Now the illuminate is chasing him. The seed represents the seed of realization, his town represents the U.S. He's sending us a message guys.

This music come from Tombstone Territory? It has a western twang and lilt, the cadence of a pony, and that's because Kingston is like Haigt-Ashbury Territory, you know, the Wild West; Palladin hailed from the Haight. Clapton's cover outsold the real thing? I know he meant it as homage but his isn't slightly Western or even American, whereas Marley is always an American Cowboy, wearing Jimi's black hat, shooting down the white hat hypocrite like John Brown or Ronald Raygun. All of this transpires because Kingston and the Haight and Tombstone are all the same thing (Remember Peter Tosh, Hugh Mundell, King Tubby? Marley? the flower children assaulted by troops with bayonets fixed? all of the great creation in the midst of downpressure, sidewise pressure, pressure drop?), and in the Western Hemisphere a Rastaman (un)Commonman, is in the center of the vortex  where the freedom is, whorling into the future of the New Consciousness as common conscious thought evolves. Praises for Jahmaica, her Bob Marley, and those of us who live in we don't know what sin is. The concept of sin was codified by some ancient people who were bent on visiting some onto the rest of us, those who haven't kept the score, but we're nonviolent, not stupid. The wheels are still in spin, make love not war, like Cupid.

For the moment there isn't any now, but soon again there will be.  Remember that the Sheriff was SHOT to death and the shooter confessed and was sentenced to a 25 year to life.

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.
