"All Along The Watchtower"
set tempo
4th fret
                         All Along The Watchtower - Bob Dylan
Tabbed by: Dave McGinn

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

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

"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.

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 :)
