Intro & Verse: Am G F G
The rhythm for all the song is Am G F G, simple as that.


The intro pattern is use for the first verse.

      Am    G           F
E|-|--------------------------------------------|-|
B|-|--------------------------------------------|-|
G|-|--------------------------------------------|-|
D|-|--------------------------X-----------------|-|
A|-|--------------------------X-----------------|-|
e|-|--5--5--0h3-3-0-3----0h1--X--0h1--0h3/5--5--|-|

[Verse I:]

Am             G                F          G
There must be some kind of 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
Businessmen, they drink my wine,
         G
Plowmen dig my earth
Am           G          F   G
None of them along the line
Am         G           F      G
Know what any of it is worth"

[Verse II:]

This other pattern for verses two.

       Am     G      F        F/G  G   G/Am

"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,
Because the hour is getting late"

[Verse III:]

Use open chords.

      Am  G   F   G   Am

All Along the Watchtower
Princes kept their view
While other women came and went
Barefoot servants, too
Outside in the cold distance
A wild cat did growl
Two riders were approaching
And the wind began to howl.

Dave's part:

A lot of palm muting and silences. Here you need rhythm.

Then Tim's solo:
 
I love this solo, I love the way he play it.
These are just the notes, listen to it and the find the bends and all the stuff.

With overdrive and delay in some parts.

e|-|-----------------------------------------|--------------------------------|-|
                               This parts has a lot of delay
                               I tabbed it the best I could.
E|-|--------------------------|-----------------------------|-|
B|-|--------------------------|----------------------17-----|-|

B|-|--17---------------------------------------------------------------|-|
G|-|-------------------------------------------------------------------|-|
D|-|-------------------------------------------------------------------|-|
A|-|-------------------------------------------------------------------|-|
e|-|-------------------------------------------------------------------|-|

And then continue with this:

E|-|--17-19-20-22--22b-22b-22b-22b--|-|
B|-|--------------------------------|-|
G|-|--------------------------------|-|
D|-|--------------------------------|-|
A|-|--------------------------------|-|
e|-|--------------------------------|-|

For the next part it's hard to tab it beacuse is hard to hear.

There's another part like this before Dave start to sings:

E|-|--15/17-15/17-15/17-15/17--|-|
B|-|---------------------------|-|
G|-|---------------------------|-|
D|-|---------------------------|-|
A|-|---------------------------|-|
e|-|---------------------------|-|

[Verse IV:]
Same as the other three.

All along the watchtower
Princes kept their view
While other women came and went
Barefoot servants, too
Outside in the cold distance
A wild cat did growl
Two riders were approaching
And the wind began to howl.

Then just play with the original notes: Am G F

And...

...''No reason to get excited''.

End on Am.

''Tim Reynolds on the guitar''.
