Knocking on Heaven's Door Verse 3

Dylan didn't always sing this optional third verse:

mama wipe the blood from my face
i'm sick and tired of all these wars
there's a lot of people feeling just like me
feels like I'm knocking on heaven's door

The Alarm sings a cool version that includes this third verse.

Thanks, Chris G., for the words & video link!

Boneoke Aug. 17, 2011

Just got back from the Bone. On the bass, I sang "Low" by Cracker; and "Knocking on Heaven's Door." Plus, for the first time ever, I also played bass on: "Pride & Joy" (SRV); "Better Man" (Pearl Jam); "Sweet Caroline"; and Creed's "One." I actually have never ever heard that Creed song before -- the rhythm guitarist showed me the chords once and we started playing.

Just Got Paid & The Rover

Last Tuesday todd, Brien and I played a cool version of "Just Got Paid" where we broke into Zep's "The Rover" and then came back to "Just Got Paid." I found some inspiration for some of the bass fills in Ver. 3 of The Rover bass tab. Todd & Brien were inspired by Dream Theater's "Big Medley" and came up with the idea for this rockin' mashup.

Key to the Highway

By Big Bill Broonzy

Notable versions by Eric Clapton & Duane Allman, Little Walter, Junior Wells

I sang this with Ken at NGW, alternating verses, which we pulled from Blues for Peace.

8-bar blues
||: A | E | D | D |
| A | E | A D | A E :||

I got the key to the highway,
and I'm billed out and bound to go
I'm gonna leave here runnin',
cause walkin' is most too slow

I'm goin' down on the border,
now where I'm better known
Cause woman you don't do nothin',
but drive a good man 'way from home

Now when the moon creeps over the mountain,
I'll be on my way
Now I'm gonna walk this old highway,
until the break of day

Give me one more kiss mama,
just before I go
I'm gonna leave this town,
ain't comin' back no more"

So long baby, now I must say goodbye,
So long baby, now I must say goodbye,
I'm gonna walk this highway, 'till the day I die"

Rolling in the Deep

Julie likes to sing Rolling In the Deep (chords).
