All Along the Watchtower lyrics

"There must be some kinda way out of here"
Oh, said the joker to the thief
I want to tell you now there's just too much confusion
And I can't, no, I can't get no relief

Ah, these businessmen, they all, they drink our wine
And the plowman, well, he dig my earth
And you know that ah none of them along the line
Can show me what any of this is worth
You know we wanted to see it now, didn't we? Didn't we?

"There ain't no reason to get excited"
Ah, the thief, you know he kindly spoke
Well, now there are those among us right here, right now
Who still see life as some kind of a joke

But you and I, we have been through that
I tell you that this, this is not our fate, no no no
Now, let us all not talk falsely now
You know the hour, well, it's getting late

I said all along the watchtower, the princes, they kept the view
While the women, the women, they came and then they went
Oh, and the barefoot servants too, that's me, that's you
But outside there's a cold distance
Listen for the wildcats, here them growl
Two riders were approaching as the wind began to howl

Oh, there are those among us right here, right now
Who still see life as some kind of a joke
All along the watchtower, said, all along this watchtower
Those of you who still have eyes to see, ears hear me

You will be saved by grace in the end
Saved by time if you don't understand
That your hatred is rooted in your fear
And your paranoia and insecurities
Well, they don't belong here

You got to take someones hand
You got to learn to make your stand
And it's a one, two, three, four
Look at the sky, you can open the door
And take my hand, take my hand, take my hand

Ah, don't you want to touch
Don't you want to feel
Don't you know that this is real
I said shelter me, shelter me
Shelter me, shelter me

And save yourself, save yourself
Save, save, save
Save, save, save
Save, save, save
Save, save

And you, and you
And you are a part of the world
You, you, you are a part of the world
You gotta learn to touch, to feel
You know that you are real
I said, learn learn
You are a part of the world
