Knockin on Joe

Nick Cave and the bad seeds

These chains of sorrow, they are heavy, it is true
 And these locks cannot be broken,
 no, not with one thousand keys
 O Jailer, you drag a ball-n-chain you cannot see
 You can lay your burden on me
 You can lay your burden down on me
 You can lay your burden down upon me
 But you cannot lay down your memory

Woooo wooo wooo
 Woooo wooo wooo
 Here I go!
 Knockin on Joe!
 This square foot of sky will be mine til I die
 Knocking on Joe
 Woooo wooo wooo
 All down the row
 Knockin on Joe

O Warden I surrender to you
 Your fists can't hurt me anymore
 You know, these hands will never mop
 your dirty Death Row floors



O Preacher, come closer, you don't scare me anymore
 Just tell Nancy not to come here
 Just tell her not to come here anymore
 Tell Nancy not to come
 And let me die in the memory of those arms

O woo woo woo
 Woo woo woo
 All down the row
 Knockin on Joe
 O you kings of halls and ends of halls
 You will die within these walls
 And I'll go, down the row
 Knockin on Joe

O Nancy's body is a coffin,
 she wears my tombstone at her head
 O Nancy's body is a coffin,
 she wears my tombstone at her head
 She wears her body like a coffin
 She wears a dress of gold and red
 She wears a dress of gold and red
 She wears a dress of red and gold
 Grave-looters at my coffin
 before my body's even cold

It's a door for when I go
 Knockin on Joe
 These hands will never mop
 your dirty Death Row floors
 No! You can hide! You can run!
 O but your trial is yet to come
 O you can run! You can hide!
 But you have yet to be tried!
 You can lay your burdens down here
 You can lay your burden down
 Knockin on Joe
 You can lay your burden upon me
 You can lay your burden upon me
 Knockin on Joe
 You can lay it down here
 You can bring your burden down
 Knockin on Joe
 You can't hurt me anymore
 You can't hurt me anymore
 Knockin on Joe
