Knocking on Heaven's Door

I think we are going to have to add trucks and cars driven into predestrians and knives to the mix.

Ted Christopher - vocals
Mark Knopfler - guitar

This version was recorded in memory of the Dunblane Massacre 13 March 1996, were 16 children and one adult got killed.
A new verse was written, and the children choir who sing the chorus are brothers and sisters of the victims.
The song was released 9 December 1996, and it reached number 1. The proceeds went to charities for children.


New verse;

Lord these guns have caused too much pain
This town will never be the same
So for the bairns of Dunblane
We ask please never again

I've heard this before and it's a tearjerker. We can all ask please, no more, but with the current state of world affairs, I'm not sure we're going to get it. SIGH
