All Along the Watchtower (Main Song Page)
10/27/1992 alternate lyrics

Y'all are like Bob Dylan, all a bunch of Bob Dylan fans
All a bunch of hippies

Y'all a bunch of hippies yeah yeah
Since I got a haircut
Don't like to smoke too much green
But now and then I put a wig on
And blow my mind away
How many of you are sick of this song?
Oh that's nice of you
I'm not sick of this song either
I started playing this in Amsterdam
When I was playing, that's very romantic
But it's true, I used to play on the streets of Amsterdam
And I used to make about $4 in three hours
And then I used to go and spend it on getting completely fucking stoned
And I'm not breaking any laws 'cause I was in Amsterdam
And I was smoking and smoking the fine herb

Smoke it up, blow your mind up
All Along the Watchtower
main lyrics
"There must be some 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 of them along the line
know what any of it is worth"

"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 is 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 began to howl
