In the midst of the night you can hear a pindrop
they interrupt the peace with loud screams and gunshot blasts
from this side across to the other side
where the enemies reside
and in the mornin if you pass through the avenue
all you can smell is gun shot residue
see spent shells that fell i know this place well
somebody died last nite you can tell...

All around in my hometown
I see sheriff John Brown
Aimin to shoot I down
So I shot him down...

I...I shot the sheriff
but I didn't shoot the deputy...no
I...I shot the Sheriff
but i swear it was in self defense

Reflexes got the better of me
and what is to be must be
everyday the bucket go a well
one day the bottom a go drop out...one day

Sheriff John Brown hated me...
for what? I dunno
Every time I plant a seed
He said "kill it before it grows"

I...I shot the sheriff
but I didn't shoot the deputy...no
I...I shot the Sheriff
but i swear it was in self defense

In the midst of the night you can hear a pindrop
they interrupt the peace with loud screams and gunshot blasts
from this side across to the other side
where the enemies reside
and in the mornin if you pass through the avenue
all you can smell is gun shot residue
see spent shells that fell i know this place well
somebody died last nite you can tell...
City life...I'm tellin you
it's not a pretty sight...im tellin you
they come with big gun or a stick of dynamite
a your nite, tonites your nite...

I...I shot the sheriff
but I didn't shoot the deputy...no
I...I shot the Sheriff
but i swear it was in self defense

If i am guilty I will pay...
