C#m            B              A          B
There must be some kind a way outta here
C#m       B              A   B
said the joker to the thief
C#m              B         A   B
There's too much confusion
C#m         B      A
I can't get no relief

Business men they drink my wine plowmen dig my earth
None will level on the vine nobody of it is worth Hey!

(solo 1)

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 hours gettin' late.

(solo 2)

All along the watchtower princes kept the view
While all the women came and went bare feet servants too
Outside in the cold distance a wild cat did growl
Two riders were approaching and the wind began to howl

(outro)

Nice to see decent chords, finally. The rest of the tabs perfect too. Five Stars.
