All Along the Watchtower
1999 - Castle Music, Ltd.

Dave played 12 string acoustic in Jimi Hendrix' 1969 version, which became a top 20 single and was ranked 47th in Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Songs Of All Time.

Lyrics by Bob Dylan:

"There must be some kinda way out of here"
Said the joker to the thief
"There's too much confusion
I can't get no relief"

"Businessmen, they, they drink my wine
Plowmen dig my earth
None will level on the line
Nobody of it is worth", hey

"No reason to get excited"
The thief, he kindly spoke
"There are many here among us
Who feel that life is but a joke"

"But you and I, we've been through that
And this is not our fate
So let us not talk falsely now
The hour is getting late", hey


All along the watchtower
Princes kept the view
While all the women came and went
Barefoot servants too

Outside in the cold distance
A wildcat did growl
Two riders were approaching
And the wind began to howl, hey

All along the watchtower
All along the watchtower
