"You Got Me Knockin'" as written by Edward John Williams, Steve Hostak, Arthur Alexander and Thomas Glenn Cain....
You took me to the city baby
From a little country town
Got me way up here in the city baby
And now you want to put me down
Said come on boy let's leave here
This place ain't where it's at
So I packed up my clothes
And I took to the road
Now I can't get back

You've got me knockin' baby
You won't let me in
You've got me knockin' baby
You won't let me in

You gave me the key to your apartment
Key won't fit the lock
Now at night when I come home baby
Cryin' shame but I still have to knock
It's my own fault for leavin'
Guess I got what I deserved
But you told me that you loved me
And I believed you baby
Boy you sure got some nerve

You've got me knockin' baby
You won't let me in
You've got me knockin' baby
You won't let me in

If I ever get my hands on a nickle baby
Guess I better make it a dime
Goin' to the nearest phone booth
Get some of the home folks on the line
They all told me not to leave home
They said boy you don't know that town
You know you may not have a whole lot goin' on down here
But the home folks won't let you down

You've got me knockin' baby
You won't let me in
You've got me knockin' baby
You won't let me in
