The Lyrics

Here's another head-on collision of two disparate songs. This time
the victims are Bob Dylan's "Knocking on Heaven's Door" and
Dave Edmunds' classic (if somewhat obscure) "I Hear You
Knocking." Rock on--and good luck!
Hey take this badge, Moma, offa' me
It's getting rather dark, too dark to see
I'm knock-knock knocking
Right on heaven's door
I'm knock-knock knocking
Lyin' on the floor

I got a bunch of guns but I don't need 'em now
Go bury them and I will not even frown
I'm knock-knock knocking
Right on heaven's door
I'm knock-knock knocking
Lyin' on the floor

That long black cloud, it is comin' down
And it don't look like I'll be around
I'm knock-knock knocking
Right on heaven's door
I'm knock-knock knocking
Lyin' on the floor

I saw Bob Dylan and I can attest
He' run down and tired and needs a rest
He's knock-knock knocking
Right on heaven's door
He's knock-knock knocking
He should sing some more!

Great job, but I had to dock you a point for 1) thinking that this 1956 classic is obscure, and 2) forgetting that it was Smiley Lewis (and then Fats Domino) who did it well before Dave Edmunds, who mentioned them both in his 1971 version.

Michael, right--Dave's shouting Smiley and Fats' names in the background...so I deserved that! In any case, I love the Dave Edmunds version.

RMason - Glad to see someone else jumping in and doing one of these. Good job! I like the attitude that "I Hear You Knockin'" gives the Dylan lyrics... 5's...
