Jimi Hendrix’s All Along The Watch Tower: Classic Song Highlight

Everything about this song…the lyrics, the timeless guitar riff, and just the overall portrait of this Bob Dylan remake is a good example of a song that will never die, get old, or be forgotten. Why? Because Jimi Hendrix was & still will forever be one of music’s legendary innovative geniuses that will live on.One of my first biographies that I read ( not school-related) was A Room Full Of Mirrors by Charles Cross, which was about Jimi Hendrix. Hendrix picked up a broken acoustic guitar as a financially poor child & taught himself how to play guitar, then became a guitar icon due to his playing skills that changed music forever. Long Live Hendrix.

There must be some kinda way out of here”
Said the joker to the thief
“There’s too much confusion
I can’t get no relief”

“Businessmen, they, they drink my wine
Plowmen dig my earth
None of them along the line
Know what any of it is worth”, hey

“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”, hey

Hey

All along the watchtower
Princes kept the view
While all the women came and went
Barefoot servants too

Outside in the cold distance
A wildcat did growl
Two riders were approaching
And the wind began to howl, hey

All along the watchtower
All along the watchtower
