All Along the Watchtower lyrics

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

Yeah, yeah
Businessmen drink the wine
Plowmen dig the earth, yeah
None of them along the line
Know what any of it is worth

Oh, yeah, all along the watchtower
All along the watchtower, yeah

Ohh, no reason to get excited
The thief, he kindly spoke
There's many here among us, yeah
Who feel that life is but a joke

All along the watchtower
Hey, hey, hey, hey, yeah, yeah

Hey! 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, getting late, getting late

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, the wind began to howl out loud
