The Kingston Trio

The Kingston Trio is an American folk and pop music group that helped launch the folk revival of the late 1950s to late 1960s. The group started as a San Francisco Bay Area nightclub act with an original lineup of Dave Guard, Bob Shane, and Nick Reynolds. It rose to international popularity, fueled by unprecedented sales of 33⅓ rpm long-playing record albums (LPs), and helped to alter the direction of popular music in the U.S. more »

[Chorus:]
You don't knock (You don't knock)
You just walk on in
The door (the door)
Into heaven's inn
Theres love (theres love) 
And joy for you to share (to share) 
The whole day Through

I know (I know) 
My friends are there to rest (to rest) 
In the heaven's nest
You don't knock, ring, punch a hole 
The door's wide open a-waitin' for your soul
You don't knock just walk on in

I've walked life's winding road (Oh, yeah!) 
'Cause I'm tryin' to bear the load (Oh, yeah!)
And I traveled both night and day (Oh, yeah!) 
So tired I could hardly pray (Oh, yeah!)
Well, Jesus, my light and guide (Oh, yeah!) 
Oh, He's ever by my side. (Oh,Yeah!)
So, I'm walkin', not a-knockin', into heaven with pride

I'll have no need to fear (Oh, yeah!) 
Well, He is ever near (Oh, yeah!)
He'll know my work was true (Oh, yeah!) 
So glad the day is through (Yeah!)
Well it wasn't for me to say (Oh, yeah!) 
I didn't think I'd make my way (Oh,Yeah!)
So, I'm walkin', not a-knockin', to heaven with pride

[Chorus]
