Truth is in all that I tell
It could never have been me
I did not shoot no deputy

When Mr Grant and I know all the while
We've got enough for the whole island

Three years now we sell it in town
Under the bucket that goes down
No one knew of it but three:
Mr Grant, Davis and me

Don't blame me
Don't blame me

I swear by God it is a plot;
Davis sent me here to rot
Listen people, can't you see
Mr Davis shot the deputy

Don't blame me
Don't blame me

Don't blame me
Don't blame me
