All Along The Watchtower Lyrics

in Dylan & The Dead Album

Learn to play "All Along The Watch Tower" with online video lessons

There must be some way out of here, said the joker to the thief,
There's too much confusion, I can't get no relief.
Businessmen, they drink my wine, plowmen dig my earth,
None of them along the line know what any of it is worth.

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.

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, the wind began to howl.

Slow Train Lyrics

Slow Train Lyrics | Grateful Dead

Sometimes I feel so low-down and disgusted Can't help but wonder what's happenin' to my companions, Are they lost or are they found, have they counted the cost it'll take to bring down All their earthly principles they're gonna have to abandon? There's a slow, slow train comin' up around the bend. I had a woman down in Alabama, She was a backwoods girl, but she sure was realistic, She said, Boy, without a doubt, have to quit your mess and straighten out, You could die down here, be just another accident statistic. There's a slow, slow train...

I Want You Lyrics

I Want You Lyrics | Grateful Dead

The guilty undertaker sighs, The lonesome organ grinder cries, The silver saxophones say I should refuse you. The cracked bells and washed-out horns Blow into my face with scorn, But it's not that way, I wasn't born to lose you. I want you, I want you, I want you so bad, Honey, I want you. The drunken politician leaps Upon the street where mothers weep And the saviors who are fast asleep, They wait for you. And I wait for them to interrupt Me drinkin' from my broken cup And ask me to Open up the gate for you. I want you, I want you, I want you...

Knockin' On Heaven's Door Lyrics

Knockin' On Heaven's Door Lyrics | Grateful Dead

Mama, take this badge off of me, I can't use it anymore It's gettin' dark, too dark for me to see I feel like I'm knockin' on heaven's door Knock, Knock, Knockin' on heaven's door Mama, put my guns in the ground, I can't shoot them anymore That long black cloud is comin' down I feel like I'm knockin' on Heaven's door

Joey Lyrics

Joey Lyrics | Grateful Dead

Born in Red Hook, Brooklyn, in the year of who knows when Opened up his eyes to the tune of an accordion Always on the outside of whatever side there was When they asked him why it had to be that way, "Well," he answered, "just because." Larry was the oldest, Joey was next to last. They called Joe "Crazy," the baby they called "Kid Blast." Some say they lived off gambling and runnin' numbers too. It always seemed they got caught between the mob and the men in blue. Joey, Joey, King of the streets, child of clay. Joey, Joey, What made them want...

Queen Jane Approximately Lyrics

Queen Jane Approximately Lyrics | Grateful Dead

Now when your mother sends back all your invitations And your father to your sister he explains That you're tired of yourself and all of your creations Won't you come see me, Queen Jane? Won't you come see me, Queen Jane? Now the flower lady wants back what she has have lent you And the smell of her roses does not remain When all your children start to resent you Won't you come see me, Queen Jane? Won't you come see me, Queen Jane? Now when all the clowns that you have commissioned Have all died in battle or in vain And you find yourself sick...

Gotta Serve Somebody Lyrics

Gotta Serve Somebody Lyrics | Grateful Dead

You may be an ambassador to England or France, You may like to gamble, you might like to dance, You may be the heavyweight champion of the world, You may be a socialite with a long string of pearls But you're gonna have to serve somebody, yes indeed You're gonna have to serve somebody, Well, it may be the devil or it may be the Lord But you're gonna have to serve somebody. You might be a rock 'n' roll addict prancing on the stage, You might have drugs at your command, women in a cage, You may be a business man or some high degree thief, They...
