Lyrics and Chords:

Verse

G           D                Am
Momma take this badge off of me,
G           D            C
Cuz I cant use it any more,
G           D              Am
It's gettin' dark, to dark to see,
G           D               C
Feels i'm knockin' on heaven's door,


Chorus
G               D                Am
knock knock knockin' on heavens door,
G               D                Am
knock knock knockin' on heavens door,
(repeat 2 more times)


G            D              Am
Momma put my guns in the ground,
G            D              C
Cuz i cant shoot them any more,
G            D              Am
That long dark cloud is comin' down,
G            D               C
Feels i'm knockin' on heaven's door

Repeat Chorus
