Knockin' on Your Screen Door


C F I ain't got nobody hangin' 'round my doorstep C G Ain't got no loose change just a-hangin' 'round my jeans C F If you see somebody, would you send them over my way C G7 C I could use some help here with a can of pork and beans

I once had a family, but they up and left me
With nothing but an 8-track, another side of George Jones
I was in high cotton, just a-bangin' on my 6-string
A-kickin' at the trash can, walkin' skin and bone


F C I can see your back porch if I close my eyes now G7 I can hear the train tracks through the laundry on the line C F I'm thinkin' it's your business, but you don't gotta answer C G7 C I'm knockin' on your screen door in the summertime

Everybody's out there, climbin' on the trees now
Swingin' in the breeze now, a-hangin' on the vine
I'm dreamin' 'bout a sail boat; I don't need your fur coat
Underneath a dashboard, got some sweet potato wine

I can see your back porch if I close my eyes now
I can hear the train tracks through the laundry on the line
I'm thinkin' it's your business, but you don't got to answer
I'm knockin' on your screen door in the summertime
I'm knockin' on your screen door in the summertime

(Words and music by John Prine and Pat McLaughlin, 2017)
