                         All Along The Watchtower - Bob Dylan
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Dave McGinn
Email: 

Tuning: Standard

Tip: Transpose this tab down 4 steps, so you can play in A. 
     Then put on a capo 4th fret to get back to the original key.
     Most of Dylan's live versions are in A anyway.


All Along The Watchtower


[Verse 1]

C#m           B      A          B    C#m        B            A    B
"There must be some way out of here," said the joker to the thief,
C#m          B      A     B  C#m     B      A      B
"There's too much confusion, I can't get no relief.
C#m     B         A           B  C#m     B      A    B
Businessmen, they drink my wine, plowmen dig my earth,
C#m     B      A        B  C#m         B            A     B
None of them along the line know what any of it is worth."

C#m  B A  B C#m  B A  B C#m  B A  B C#m  B A  B C#m


[Verse 2]

C#m          B      A     B  C#m     B      A      B
"No reason to get excited," the thief, he kindly spoke,
C#m     B      A        B  C#m         B            A     B
"There are many here among us who feel that life is but a joke.
C#m     B      A        B  C#m         B            A     B
But you and I, we've been through that, and this is not our fate,
C#m          B      A     B  C#m     B      A      B
So let us not talk falsely now, the hour is getting late."


[Verse 3]

C#m          B      A     B  C#m     B      A      B
All along the watchtower, princes kept the view
C#m     B      A        B  C#m         B            A     B
While all the women came and went, barefoot servants, too.
C#m          B      A     B  C#m     B      A      B
Outside in the distance a wildcat did growl,
C#m          B      A     B  C#m     B      A      B
Two riders were approaching, the wind began to howl.

===============================================================================

Yeh, I was just lookin around and the only chords on this site are the Hendrix version
or wrong, so I thought I'd just type it up, since it's easy. I don't know if the lyrics
are right, I just copied and pasted them :)
