Song 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, yeah
Knock-knock-knockin' on heaven's door, yeah

Woah, yeaha
Woah, yeaha

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, yeah
Knock-knock-knockin' on heaven's door, yeah

"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, yeah
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,
Knock-knock-knockin' on heaven's door, woah, woah yeah
Knock-knock-knockin' on heaven's door,
Knock-knock-knockin' on heaven's door, woah yeah
Knock-knock-knockin' on heaven's door,
Knock-knock-knockin' on heaven's door, woah, oh yeah

Am I the only one who hate the vocals on this song!? Come on people!
It sounds like parody from south park or something. I live the lyrics, the instruments and all that, but the vocals just pisses me off every time i listen to it.

This song has a great sound to it and great instruments. The song would be awesome if there wasn't the phone sounds and talking in the background. I know it goes along with what the song is about, but it is annoying. Maybe it's just the version I have. If the sound effects werent there my score would be higher.

It's Izzy Stradlin singing, not Slash, or Axl(although he does the backing vocals).

Una excelente interpretacion del maestro Bob Dylan, de echo me parece mejor que la version original.

I must agree with all those people who said they wanted this song for their funeral. My plan however is after everyone is crying after this song is to follow it quickly with "always look on the bright side of life" by monty python.

P.S. yes i know I'm weird you don't have to point that out

I love this song. Bob Bylan was the original writer of this song, but they're version was awesome. I think of alot of things when I listen to this song. Guns N Roses will be forever and for always. They will beat out just about everything else.
