Knocking On Heaven's Door Lyrics

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

Knock-knock-knockin' on heaven's door, Hey, hey, hey, hey, yeah
Knock-knock-knockin' on heaven's door
Knock-knock-knockin' on heaven's door, Ooh, yeah
Knock-knock-knockin' on heaven's door, hey, hey, yeah

FIRST SOLO

Mama put my guns in the ground
I can't shoot them anymore
That cold black cloud is comin' down
Feels like I'm knockin' on heaven's door

Knock-knock-knockin' on heaven's door, Hey, hey, hey, hey, yeah
Knock-knock-knockin' on heaven's door
Knock-knock-knockin' on heaven's door, Ooh, yeah
Knock-knock-knockin' on heaven's door, hey, hey, yeah

SECOND SOLO

(telephone sounds, voice over telephone:)
"You just better start sniffin' your own rank subjugation, Jack, 'cause it's just you against your tattered libido, the bank, and the mortician forever man, and it wouldn't be luck if you could get out of life alive."

Knock-knock-knockin' on heaven's door, Hey, hey, hey, hey, yeah
(Knock-knock-knockin' on heaven's door)
Knock-knock-knockin' on heaven's door, Ooh, yeah
(Knock-knock-knockin' on heaven's door)
Knock-knock-knockin' on heaven's door, Ooh, no, no, no, no, no
(Knock-knock-knockin' on heaven's door)
Knock-knock-knockin' on heaven's door, Woah, no, no, no, no
(Knock-knock-knockin' on heaven's door)
Door, woah, oh, oh, yeah

Knock-knock-knockin' on heaven's door
Knock-knock-knockin' on heaven's door, Ooh, yeah
Knock-knock-knockin' on heaven's door
Knock-knock-knockin' on heaven's door, Ooh, woah, woah, oh, yeah.... ow!

I thought I would inform those who don't know. It was Bob Dylan who originated this song in 1973. The Guns N' Roses as well as many others have performed this song since then.

Just my guess...but it sounds like it may be about a cop dying after getting shot since they first mention badge and then guns.

This momma cries everytime she hears this song. My son died by way of a gun, although he loved guns. The words to this song are so powerful to me.
