Along The Watchtower
Capo 4th fret
F[barre chord] 133211
[Am]"There must be some[G6] way[F] out of here,"
[G6] [Am] Said the joker[G6] to the[F] thief,
[G6] [Am]"There's too much[G6] con[F]fusion,
[G6] [Am] I can't get[G6] no rel[F]ief.
[G6] [Am]Businessmen,[G6] they[F] drink my wine,
[G6] [Am]Plowmen dig[G6] my[F] earth,
[G6] [Am]None of them [G6]a[F]long the line
[G6] [Am]Nobody of it[G6] is[F] worth
[G6] [Am["No reason to[G6] get ex[F]cited,"
[G6] [Am]The thief, he kind[G6]ly [F]spoke,
[G6] [Am]"There are many[G6] here a[F]mong us
[G6] [Am]Who feel that life[G6] is but[F] a joke.
[G6] [Am]But you and I,[G6] we've[F] been through that,
[G6] [Am]And this is not[G6] our[F] fate,
[G6] [Am]So let us not[G6] talk [F]falsely now,
[G6] [Am]The hour is[G6] getting[F] late."
[G6] [Am]All along[G6] the [F]watchtower,
[G6] [Am]Princes kept[G6] the[F] view
[G6] [Am]While all the wo[G6]men[F] came and went,
[G6] [Am]Barefoot ser[G6]vants,[F] too.
[G6] [Am]Outside[G6] in the[F] distance
[G6] [Am]A wildcat[G6] did [F]growl,
[G6] [Am]Two riders[G6] were app[F]roaching,
[G6] [Am]The wind began[G6] to[F] howl. [G6] [Am]
"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 cold distance a wildcat did growl,
Two riders were approaching, the wind began to howl.
