Song goes like this: 

[Intro:] 

Twice with picking fill 2  G5 D C 
Twice just power chords    G5 D C 

[Verse 1] (with fill 1) 

G5         D               Am 
Mamma take this badge from me 

          (with fill 2) 
G5         D         C 
I can't use it anymore 

          (with fill 1) 
G5                D             Am 
It's getting dark, too dark to see 

          (with fill 2) 
G5             D                       C 
Feels like I'm knockin' on heaven's door 

[Chorus:]

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
