Song goes like this:

Intro:
Twice with picking G5 D C
Twice just power chords G5 D C

Verse 1 (with picking)
G5 D Am
Mamma take this badge from me
G5 D C
I can't use it anymore
G5 D Am
It's getting dark, too dark to see
G5 D C
Feels like I'm knockin' on heaven's door

Chorus (if you're really concerned about playing it like the
CD, listen to it for rhythm. But this song has been done by so
many people so differently that you might as well give it your own
feel.)
G5 D5 C5
Knock, knock, knockin' on heaven's door,
C5
Hey, hey, hey, hey, yeah
G5 D5 C5
Knock, knock, knockin' on heaven's door,
C5
(no lyrics)
G5 D5 C5
Ooh, knock, knock, knockin' on heaven's door
C5
Ooh yeah
G5 D5 C5
Knock, knock, knockin' on heaven's door
C5
Hey, hey, hey, hey, yeah

Additional lyrics:
Mama, put my guns in the ground
I can't shoot them anymore
That cold black cloud is comin' down
Feels like I'm knockin' on heaven's door

Basically there are lots of "knockin' on heaven's door"s throughout the rest






This is one of GUNS N' ROSES best song if you ask me.
I saw that no one had tabbed the second solo so I did as
well as the rest of the song. If you have any questions,
Comments, additions, or Corrections feel free to e-mail
them to me.
P.S. Tune your guitar down half a step.
