Ma, take this badge off of me
I can't use it any more
It's getting dark, too dark to see
Feel like I'm knockin' on heaven's door

Knock, knock, knockin' on heavens door
Knock, knock, knockin' on heavens door
Knock, knock, knockin' on heavens door
Knock, knock, knockin' on heavens door

Ma, take these guns away from me
I can't shoot them any more
There's a long black cloud following me
Feel like I'm knockin' on heaven's door

Knock, knock, knockin'
Knock, knock, knockin' on heavens door
Knock, knock, knockin' on heavens door

Ma, take this badge off of me
I can't use it any more
It's getting dark, too dark to see
Feel like I'm knockin' on heaven's door

Knock, knock, knockin' on heavens door
Knock, knock, knockin' on heavens door
Knock, knock, knockin' on heavens door
Knock, knock, knockin' on heavens door
