I Hear You Knocking
Smiley Lewis Lyrics


You went away and left me long time ago
Now you come back knockin' on my door
I hear you knocking, but you can't come in
I hear you knocking, go back where you've been

I begged you not to go, but you said goodbye
Now you come back tellin' all your lies
I hear you knocking, but you can't come in
I hear you knocking, go back where you've been

I told way back in '52
I would never go with you
I hear you knocking
But you can't come in
I hear you knocking
Go back where you've been

You'd better get back to your used-to-be
Because your love's no good to me
I hear you knocking
But you can't come in
I hear you knocking
Go back where you've been

(Cause the description lyrics are a bit fucky)

You went away and left me long time ago
Now you come back knockin
on my door

I hear you knocking
But you cant come in
I hear you knocking
Go back where you been

I begged you not to go but you
Said goodbye
Now you come back telling all those lies

I hear you knocking
but you cant come in
I hear you knocking
Go back where you been

I told you way back in
'52
That I would never
Go with you

I hear you knocking
But you cant come in
I hear you knocking
Go back where you been

You better go back to your
Used-to-be
Cause your love's no
Good to me

I hear you knocking
But you cant come in
I hear you knocking
Go back where you been



César Hamer

You went away and left me long time ago
Now you come back knockin' on my door
I hear you knockin'
But you can't come in
I hear you knockin'
Go back where you've been
I begged you not to go but you said goodbye
Now you come back tellin' all those lies
I hear you knockin'
But you can't come in
I hear you knockin'
Go back where you've been
I told you way back in '52
I would never go with you
I hear you knockin'
But you can't come in
I hear you knockin'
Go back where you've been
You better go back to your used-to-be
Because your love's no good to me
I hear you knockin'
But you can't come in
I hear you knockin'
Go back where you've been

Scorsese always has final cut. But, he works with the best.

It's actually Robbie Robertson who took care of choosing the music and songs for the film.

@Nick Mellick I saw the PBS documentary series. It was fantastic!
