We all know the name, we all know the voice.

Bob Dylan has been an american treasure for more than 50 years now. His knack for story telling and giving a life lesson is by far the best in my book.

Dylan wrote it for the 1973 Western film, Pat Garrett And Billy The Kid. It plays while Sheriff Colin Baker is dying from his gunshot wounds. Dylan cameos in the movie as the character, Alias.

The song simply confronts and deals with bringing someones poor deeds to light.

Mama, put my guns in the ground
I can’t shoot them anymore.
That long black cloud is comin’ down
I feel like I’m knockin’ on heaven’s door.
