'I shot the sheriff' is the first pop song he is known to have sung. At least according to his mother. She tells him when he is older that she had used to shush him in the supermarket because he would launch into 'But I did not shoot the deputy...' which seemed to attract attention she found embarrassing. Without knowing for sure, he suspects he was singing the Eric Clapton version, since that was more likely to have been playing on his parents' car stereo than the Bob Marley original.
