Bob Dylan – Knockin' On Heaven's Door lyrics

Mama, take this badge off of me
I can't use it anymore.
It's gettin' dark, too dark to see
I feel I'm knockin' on heaven's door.

Knock, knock, knockin' on heaven's door
Knock, knock, knockin' on heaven's door
Knock, knock, knockin' on heaven's door
Knock, knock, knockin' on heaven's door

Mama, put my guns in the ground
I can't shoot them anymore.
That long black cloud is comin' down
I feel I'm knockin' on heaven's door.

Knock, knock, knockin' on heaven's door
Knock, knock, knockin' on heaven's door
Knock, knock, knockin' on heaven's door
Knock, knock, knockin' on heaven's door

    This is from the movie "Pat Garett and Billy the Kid" and it is when Slim Pickens is dying and it is describing word for word what is happing on the screen "Mama take this badge of of me" that is when his wife that everyone calls mama takes his badge off of him in the film watch the movie and it makes perfect sense.
