KNOCKIN' ON HEAVEN'S DOOR

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.

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

1. Alternative outtake verses from Burbank sessions, Feb 1973

Mama, put my guns in the ground
I don't need them anymore
Long black train is comin' round
I feel I'm knockin' on heaven's door

Mama take this badge off of me
I don't need it any more
It's gettin' dark, too dark to see
I feel I'm knocking on heaven's door

Mama, put my guns in the ground
I can't shoot them anymore
that long black train is comin' round
I'm knockin' up on heaven's door


2. 1974, various locations, including the version on "Before The Flood". This verse is inserted between the two verses on the original album.

Mama, wipe the blood from my face
I'm sick and tired of the war
Got a lone feelin', and it's hard to trace
Feel like I'm knockin' on heaven's door

Mama take these bells out of my ears
I can't hear them anymore
They're bringin' me down and givin' me tears
Feel like I'm knockin' on heaven's door

3. Roger McGuinn's verse:

Mama I can hear that thunder roar
Echoin' down from God's distant shore
I can hear it callin' for my soul
Feel I'm knockin' on heaven's door
(Waterbury CT)

4. Mama wipe the blood off of my face
I can't see through it anymore
I need someone to talk to, and a new hiding place
I feel like I'm knocking on heaven's door
(Boston)

5. Mama take these tears out of my eyes
I can't see through them anymore
Just for once, I'd like to see the sunrise
Feel like I'm knockin' on heaven's door
(MSG, "Night of the Hurricane")

6. Mama take this badge off of me
I can't feel it anymore
It's getting dark, too dark to see
Feel like I'm knockin' on heaven's door
(New Orleans, Fort Worth)

7. Mama tow my barge down to sea
Pull it down from shore to shore
Two brown eyes are lookin' at me
Feel like I'm knockin' on heaven's door.

8. Goin' down by that road
Feelin' down and more and more
Take the train by [...]
Feel like I'm knockin' on heaven's door.
(Earl's Court, London)

10. [...] on this scene
fallin' down like to the floor
Two brown eyes are looking at me
Feel like I'm knockin' on heaven's door
(Earl's Court, London)

11. Mama take me above all that misery
Let it fall down to the floor
Two brown eyes are looking at me
Feel like I'm knockin' on heaven's door
(Drammen, Norway)

12. Mama take this [front part away]
I just don't want it anymore
Aah, when I get in front of something it's too much to pay
Yeah, Feel like I'm knockin' on heaven's door

13. Mama take my boat [out of the sea]
Let it fall down to the floor
Two brown eyes are looking at me
Feel like I'm knockin' on heaven's door.
(Avignon)

14. Mama wipe the blood out of my face
I just can't see through it anymore
Got a lone black feelin' and it's hard to trace
And I feel like I'm knockin' on heaven's door...

15. Mama put my guns into the ground
I just can't fire them anymore
that long black train is pullin' on down
And I feel like I'm knockin' on heaven's door...
(MTV Unplugged, 1994)
