Esta canci贸n hiperfamosa tom贸 un sentido distinto en el documental titulado, Bob Marley: The Making of a Legend con el testimonio de Esther Anderson, novia de Bob alrededor de 1972, y quien asegura que dicha canci贸n se trata de una protesta contra las pastillas anticonceptivas. Anderson explica que Bob consideraba un "sacrilegio" el uso de las pastillas porque "mataba sus semillas" fruto del amor que ambos se ten铆an.

I Shot The Sheriff

(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!
