[Verse 1]
G           D                Am
Mama, take this badge off of me
G       D           C
I can't use it anymore.
G             D                        Am
It's gettin' dark, too dark for me to see
G                D                    C
I feel like I'm knockin' on heaven's door

[Chorus]
G              D                    Am
Knock, knock, knockin' on heaven's door
G              D                    C
Knock, knock, knockin' on heaven's door
G              D                    Am
Knock, knock, knockin' on heaven's door
G          D              C
Just like so many times before

G             D           Am
Mama, put my guns in the ground
G        D            C
I can't fire them anymore.
G                D                   Am 
That long black train is pullin’ on down
G                D                    C 
I feel like I'm knockin' on heaven's door

[Chorus]
G               D                   Am 
Knock, knock, knockin' on heaven's door
G               D                   C
Knock, knock, knockin' on heaven's door
G               D                   Am
Knock, knock, knockin' on heaven's door
G          D               C
Just like so many times before

Mama wipe these tears off of my face
G           D                C
I can’t see through them any more
G                 D              Am
Take me outta here to some other place
G                D                    C
I feel like I'm knockin' on heaven's door

[Chorus]
G               D                   Am 
Knock, knock, knockin' on heaven's door
G               D                   C
Knock, knock, knockin' on heaven's door
G               D                   Am
Knock, knock, knockin' on heaven's door
G          D               C

G            D            Am
Just like so many times before
G            D            C
Just like so many times before

[Coda]
G            D            Am         G
Just like so many times before
