4th fret
To match the key of C# of Dylan's studio recording from "John Wesley Harding"
put on a capo 4th fret.

[Intro] - Am G F G 
                 (quick transtion through G to Am)

[Verse 1]

Am             G        F           G
 There must be some way out of here
Am        G            F         G
 Said the joker to the thief
Am           G       F      G
 There's too much confusion
Am       G        F     G
 I can't get no relief
Am        G        F            G
 Business men they drink my wine
Am      G       F      G
 Plowmen dig my earth
Am           G     F             G
 But none of them along the line
Am         G            F     G
 Know what any of it is worth

Am G F G x 2

[Verse 2]

Am         G        F    G
 No reason to get excited
Am           G       F      G
 The thief he kindly spoke
Am         G          F        G
 There are many here among us
Am             G             F      G
 Who feel that life is but a joke
Am           G       F                 G
 But you and I we've been through that
Am          G        F       G
 And this is not our fate
Am         G        F           G
 So let us not talk falsely now
Am          G        F       G
 The hour is getting late

Am G F G x2

[Verse 3]

Am    G        F       G
 All along the watchtower
Am          G         F       G
 The princes kept the view
Am             G     F            G
 While all the women came and went, 
Am        G         F       G
 Barefoot servants, too.
Am       G      F      G
 Outside in the distance
Am      G       F    G
 A wild cat did growl
Am          G     F          G
 Two riders were approaching
Am         G       F    G
 The wind began to howl

[Outro] - Am G F G
           (Quick transition through G to Am) 3x and end on Am

Great Tab!!!! 5 stars
This is the best version that I have found and I like that you tabbed the whole song.

on little correction. The last 2 lines of the first verse are:
None of them along the line,
Know what any of it is worth.
