Knockin on heavens door

G            D             Am

Mama, take this badge off of me 

G       D          C

I can't use it anymore.

G            D                 Am

It's gettin' dark, too dark to see 

G            D                   C

I feel I'm knockin' on heaven's door.

 

G              D                    Am

Knock, knock, knockin' on heaven's door

G              D                     C

Knock, knock, knockin' on heaven's door 

G              D                    Am

Knock, knock, knockin' on heaven's door 

G              D                     C

Knock, knock, knockin' on heaven's door

 

G            D          Am

Mama, put my guns in the ground

G         D         C

I can't shoot them anymore. 

G          D                   Am

That long black cloud is comin' down 

G                D                   C

Feels like I'm knockin' on heaven's door.
