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

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

I walked into a record store long long time ago and heard him on the speakers. Asked them who it was and they told me Smiley Davis. Only CD they had was playing...I had them get it out so I could buy it. I still have the CD. 20yrs later. Love it!!

That is so cool. Cool that you asked about the song playing and cool that the store agreed to sell the CD and cool that you still have the CD 20yrs later. When some thing moves you musically, you just have to pursue it! 😎👍

Glad that The Irishman reintroduced this gem to the folks unfortunate enough to not have parents with great music taste

@Shaun Minahan Yes Dave Edmonds is Welsh, but this was played in the movie ''The Irishman''

@MONARI OCHWANGI I never saw the film Irish Man. I just remember the original. Yes, I am that old. It just popped into my head this morning. I just love this song. Maybe I will have to see the film. Best wishes.

Also: Dave Edmunds :) - my next-favorite version.
