"i shot the sherriff" question about lyrical meaning

Discussion in 'Music genres, Bands and Artists' started by Smotpoking, May 13, 2011.

  1. During the part of the song that goes like "Every time I plant a seed,
    He said kill it before it grow -
    He said kill them before they grow. " do you think bob is referring to marijuana or is a seed metaphorical (eg. Hope). Please discuss.
  2. It's all about how you interpret it man, I personally have always seen as metaphor for the "seed" marley is spreading to the masses. But there is no right or wrong way to interpret a song.
  3. Maybe a dual meaning.
