All Along the Watchtower Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
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
Verse 2
Business men they
Drink my wine
There plowmen dig my earth
None of them along the line
Know what any of it's worth
Verse 3
No reason to get excited
The thief he kindly spoke
There are many among us
Who feel that life is but a joke
Verse 4
But you and I we've been through all that, yes we have
And this is not our fate
So let us not talk falsely now
The hour is getting late
Verse 5
And all along the watchtower
Princes kept the view
While all the women all the women all the women came and went
Barefoot servants too
Outside in the cold distance
A wild cat did growl, la la la
Two riders, two riders approaching
The wind began to howl
Verse 6
The thief he take
My money take
The thief he take
My money take
Verse 7
Am I insane
Auf wiedersehen
Am I insane
The thief is safe
Verse 8
No reason to get excited
