I heard him say, "Mama, take this badge off 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
Well, I feel I'm knockin'
Knock, knock, knockin' on Heaven's door
Ooh, yes, I feel it
Knock, knock, knockin' on Heaven's door
Knock, knock, knockin' on Heaven's door

He said, "I'm gonna put my guns into the ground
I can't shoot them anymore
That long black cloud is comin' down
And I feel I'm knockin' on Heaven's door"

Well, knock, knock, knockin' on Heaven's door, yeah
Knock, knock, knockin' on Heaven's door
I feel I'm knockin'
Knock, knock, knockin' on Heaven's door
I feel I'm knockin'
Knock, knock, knockin' on Heaven's door

Knock, knock, knockin' on Heaven's door
I feel I'm knockin' on Heaven's door
Knock, knock, knockin' on Heaven's door
You said that, "I feel like I'm knockin'"
Knock, knock, knockin' on Heaven's door
Yes, I'm knockin'

Knock, knock, knockin' on Heaven's door
You bet on somebody come and take this badge off me
Knock, knock, knockin' on Heaven's door
I can't use it anymore
Knock, knock, knockin' on Heaven's door
I wish somebody would take these guns off of me

Knock, knock, knockin' on Heaven's door
I feel like I'm knockin' on Heaven's door
Knock, knock, knockin' on Heaven's door
Well, yeah, I feel I'm knockin'
Knock, knock, knockin' on Heaven's door
I feel like I'm knockin'

Knock, knock, knockin' on Heaven's door
Yes, I feel like I'm knockin'
Knock, knock, knockin' on Heaven's door
Knockin' on Heaven's door
Knock, knock, knockin'
