Mama, wipe the blood off of my face
I can't see through it anymore
I need someone to talk to in a new hiding place
Feel like I´m looking at 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 I can hear that thunder roar
Echoing down from god´s distance shore
I can hear him calling for my soul
I feel like I'm knockin' on heaven's door
