Dave Matthews Band All Along the Watchtower Lyrics

“There must be some kind of way out of here,”
said the joker to the thief.
“Too much confusion.
I can’t get no relief.”

“Business men, they
drink my wine.
Oh, and the plowmen dig my earth.
None of them along the line
know what any of it’s 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.” (ha, ha, ha…)

“But you and I, we’ve been through that, oh
and this is not our fate.
So let us not talk falsely now,
the hour is getting late.”

And All Along the Watchtower
princes kept their view
While all the women, all the women,
all the women, came and they went,
barefoot servants, too.
Outside in the cold distance
A wild cat did growl, (la la la)
Two riders were approaching
The wind began to howl
Yeah…

All Along the Watchtower
The princes kept their view, oh
While all the women came and they went
Barefoot servants, too
Outside in the cold distance
A wild cat did growl, (la la la)
Two riders were approaching
The wind begins to… howl.

The money safe.
the thief he take
The money safe,
the thief he take

No reason to get excited.
