The Jimi Hendrix Experience – All Along The Watchtower (Lyrics)


Lyrics:

“There must be some kind of 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 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’s 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
