Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door

(„Pat Garrett & Billy The Kid”, 1973 Columbia)
słowa i muzyka: Bob Dylan
Mama, take this badge off of me
I can't use it anymore.
It's gettin' dark, too dark for me to see
I feel like 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 like I'm knockin' on heaven's door.

Baby stay right here with me…

'Cause I can't see you anymore…

This ain't the way it's supposed to be…

I feel I'm knocking on heaven's door…


Son won't you remember me?…

I can't be with you anymore…

A lawman's life is never free…

I feel I'm knocking on heaven's door…


Mama wipe the blood from my face

I'm sick and tired of the war

Got a feeling that's hard to trace

I feel I'm knocking on heaven's door
