msboyce – bob dylan’s “all along the watchtower” (2) lyrics


[verse 1]
“there must be some way out of here”
said the joker to the thief
“there’s too much confusion
i can’t get no relief
businessmen, they drink my wine
plowmen dig my earth
none of them along the line
know what any of it is worth”

[verse 2]
“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”

[verse 3]
all along the watchtower
princes kept the view
while all the women came and went
barefoot servants, too
outside, in the distance
a wildcat did growl
two riders were approaching
the wind began to howl
