Oooh Oooh Oooh

Yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah...

Mama take this badge off of me,
I can't use it anymore,
It's getting dark, too dark to see,
Feels like I'm knockin' on heavens' door,

Knock knock knocking on heavens' door,
Knock knock knocking on heavens' door,
Knock knock knocking on heavens' door,
Knock knock knocking on heavens' door,

Mama put my guns in the ground,
I can't shoot them anymore,
That long black cloud is coming down,
Feels like I'm knockin' on heavens' door,

Knock knock knocking on heavens' door,
Knock knock knocking on heavens' door,
Knock knock knocking on heavens' door, yeah, yeah
Knock knock knocking on heavens' door,

Yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah...

    It seems as though i have so much work to do and not alot of time. It seems like time ending for me real soon. Is it because my end is near? But let me knock on heavens door if it is.

    I think this is hard to find the meaning / message of this song; it's not a very long song at all. "momma take this badge off of me, I can't use it anymore." She's probably singing about her heart is giving out or something like that. "Fell I'm knocking' on heavens door." This part here for sure probably mean she's dieing I guess, and so does 'That long black cloud is coming down." Giving up is the way to go, you can't live forever, but you can live for a long time.
