ABOUT Rock and Roll
This musical genre originated in 1940s and 1950s’ America. It formed out of primarily a mixture of Blues , Jazz, and Gospel combined together with Western Swing and Country music.

About I Hear You Knockin’

I Hear You Knockin’ is a popular R&B song with emphatic syncopation, the track was written by Dave Bartholomew and Earl King and published in 1955. The original recording was performed by Smiley Lewis, which reached #2 on the Billboard R&B singles chart in 1955.
The lyrics involve a former lover whose knocking at the door will not be answered. A similar lyrical theme appears in the earlier songs from Smiley Lewis, such as “Keep A-Knockin'” (1935) and “Open the Door, Richard” (1947), to which “I Hear You Knocking” may be considered an answer song.
