All along the watchtower!


[Verse 1]
     A5    G       F6/9   G

A5                  G       F6/9           G
    "There must be some way out of here!"
A5               G          F6/9     G
     Said the joker to the thief,
A5               G          F6/9     G
    "There's too much con - fusion,
A5            G          F6/9      G
     I can't get no re - lief,
A5              G        F6/9           G
     Business - men they drink my wine,
A5              G      F6/9    G
     Ploughmen dig my earth,
A5            G        F6/9             G
     None of them, a - long the line,
A5              G           F6/9        G
     Know what any of it is worth!


[Verse 2]
     A5    G       F6/9   G
||:  /  /  /  /  |  /  /  /  / :|| [x2]

A5             G            F6/9       G
    "No reason to get ex - cited," 
A5                  G     F6/9         G
    The thief, he kindly spoke,
A5              G            F6/9      G
    "There are many here a - mong us...
A5                 G            F6/9   G
    Who feel that life is but a joke,
A5              G       F6/9                G
    But you and I we've been through that,
A5               G      F6/9     G
    And this is not our fate,
A5            G         F6/9         G
    So let us not talk falsely now, 
A5                G     F6/9     G
    The hour is getting late---------!"

    All a - long the watchtower,
A5           G         F6/9        G
    Princes kept their view,
A5                  G   F6/9            G
    While all the women came and went,
A5              G     F6/9    G
    Barefoot servants too,
A5      G             F6/9    G
Outside in the cold distance...
A5            G       F6/9    G
    A wild - cat did growl,
A5              G        F6/9       G
    Two riders were ap - proaching,
A5                 G     F6/9       G
    The wind be - gan to howl---------!
