lyrics

1

knockin‘ on heaven‘s door
(Bob Dylan adapted by Ted Christopher)

Lord, take this badge off of me
I can't use it anymore
It's gettin' too dark, too dark to see
Felt like 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
I feel like knockin' on heaven's door

Lord these guns have caused too much pain
This town will never be the same
So for the bairns of Dunblane
We ask please never again
1)

The Lord is my shepherd
I shall not want
He makes me down to lie
In pastures green
He leadeth me
The quiet waters by

Lord put all these guns in the ground
We just can't shoot them anymore
It's time that we spread some love around
Before we're knockin' on heavens door

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

Lord put all these guns in the ground
We just can't shoot them anymore
It's time that we spread some love around
Before we're knockin' on heavens door

Knock, knock, knockin' on heaven's door
Knock, knock, knockin' on heaven's door
Knock, knock, knockin' on heaven's door
I feel I'm 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
I've been there too many times before

notes

1) Ted Christopher wrote a new verse for "knockin' on heaven's door" in memory of the Dunblane school children and their teacher. Bob Dylan agreed to the addition of the new verse, something he has rarely done before.
