All along the watchtower

Dit nummer is geschreven door Bob Dylan, en ook door andere groot- en kleinheden vaak uit gevoerd.

Zoals deze versie van Neil Young. 



En schitterend is ook die van Michael Hedges.





There must be some kind of way out of here
Said the joker to the thief.
Theres too much confusion
I cant get no relief.
Businessman they drink my wine
Plow men dig my earth.
None will level on the line
Nobody of it is worth.

Hey 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 uh.
But you and I weve been through that
And this is not our fate.
So let us not talk falsely now
The hours getting late.

Hey hey.

All along the watchtower
Princes kept the view.
While all the women came and went
Bare-foot servants too.
Outside in the cold distance
A wild cat did growl.
Two riders were approachin
And the wind began to howl.

Hey. Oh, All along the watchtower
Hear you sing around the watch
Gotta beware gotta beware I will.

Ooh baby.
All along the watchtower.
