Knockin' On Heaven's Door

"Knockin' On Heaven's Door", words by Bob Dylan, performed by U2. I was looking through the archive and I noticed that the song is not in there. I think U2's version is incredible, and should be in here. I tabbed the song from a live version they did circa 1984 in Chicago, in case any of you have ever heard the version. It's a very simple song with an awesome little solo. There are two guitars for the song: and acoustic and an electric with a delay pedal (set to about .4 seconds). The acoustic plays the same chords througout the song, and it opens the song for the first verse: INTRO G D Am e-3--3--2-2-3-2--0-0-0-0-3-3-3-3-3-3-3- b-3--3--3-3-3-3--1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1- g-0--0--2-2-2-2--2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2- d-0--0--0-0-0-0--2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2- a-2--2-----------0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0- e-3--3--------------------------------- G D C e-3--3--2-2-3-2--0--0-0- b-3--3--3-3-3-3--1--1-1- g-0--0--2-2-2-2--0--0-0- d-0--0--0-0-0-0--2--2-2- a-2--2-----------3--3-3- e-3--3-----------3--3-3- VERSE (Just keep playing same intro chords for the entire song) G D Am Bobby take this badge off of me G D C I can't wear it anymore G D Am It gets so dark I cannot see G D C I feel like I'm knockin' on heaven's door REFRAIN G D Am Knock-knock-knockin' on heaven's door G D C Knock-knock-knockin' on heaven's door (repeat refrain once) VERSE 2: bring in the electric playing same exact chords Bobby take these guns to the ground I can't shoot them anymore A long black cloud is coming down It looks like we're knockin' on heaven's door REFRAIN After refrain, play this little solo, with heavy delay SOLO: e----------------------------------------------0------ b--3--5--3-5-3-5--3-5-3-1-0-0-0-1-0--------------0---- g-----------------------------------2-0--------------- d---------------------------------------0-0h2--------- e-7-5-7-8-7-5-5-3-3-3-2-2-3-0--5-3-7-10------10---10---10---10---10\- b---------------------------------------8--8----8----8----8----8---\- The rest of the song just repeats the same chords.
