Knockin' on Heaven's Door 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
Knock-knock-knockin' on heaven's door
Knock-knock-knockin' on heaven's...

    The guns and the badge represent what the man is and what he has done in life. He can't carry the burdon of it all anymore, the end has come and he has chosen when and how to go.

    The song in my View is telling of how a Dying Deputy is saying to his mother that he can't do it anymore his day is done. bury him with his guns and take his badge off him as he can no longer serve as a deputy.
