All Along The Watchtower

Bob Dylan

[Am]   There must be s[G]ome kind of way o[F]ut of here,  [G] [Am]

[Am]   Said the joker [G]to the thief.  [F] [G] [Am]

[Am]   There’s too muc[G]h confusion;  [F] [G] [Am]

[Am]   I can’t get no [G]relief.  [F] [G] [Am]


[Am]   Business men, t[G]hey drink my wine[F],  [G] [Am]

[Am]   Plowmen dig my [G]earth.  [F] [G] [Am]

[Am]   None of them  a[G]long the line.  [F] [G] [Am]

[Am]   Know what any o[G]f it is worth.  [F] [G] [Am]


[Am]   No reason to ge[G]t excited,  [F] [G] [Am]

[Am]   The thief, he k[G]indly spoke.  [F] [G] [Am]

[Am]   There are many [G]here among us  [F] [G] [Am]

[Am]   Who feel that l[G]ife is but a joke[F],  [G] [Am]


[Am]   But you and I, [G]we’ve been throug[F]h that  [G] [Am]

[Am]   And this is not[G] our fate,  [F] [G] [Am]

[Am]   So let us stop [G]talking falsely n[F]ow?  [G] [Am]

[Am]   The hour is get[G]ting late.  [F] [G] [Am]


[Am]   All along the w[G]atchtower  [F] [G] [Am]

[Am]   princes kept th[G]e view  [F] [G] [Am]

[Am]   while all the w[G]omen came and wen[F]t,  [G] [Am]

[Am]   barefoot servan[G]ts too.  [F] [G] [Am]


[Am]  Outside in the c[G]old distance  [F] [G] [Am]

[Am]   a wildcat did g[G]rowl.  [F] [G] [Am]

[Am]   Two riders were[G] approaching  [F] [G] [Am]

[Am]   and the wind be[G]gan to howl.  [F] [G] [Am]


[Am]   All along the w[G]atchtower,  [F] [G] [Am]

[Am]   All along the w[G]atchtower,  [F] [G] [Am]

[Am]   All along the w[G]atchtower.  [F] [G] [Am]
