All Along the Watchtower
Jimi Hendrix Lyrics


There must be some kind of way outta here
Said the joker to the thief
There's too much confusion
I can't get no relief

Business men, they drink my wine
Plowmen dig my earth
None will level on the line
Nobody offered his word
Hey, 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, uh, but you and I, we've been through that
And this is not our fate
So let us stop talkin' falsely now
The hour's getting late, hey

Hey

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

@Greed Man, I found how to explain my POV.

In yours and that of these other People, that man deserved the Arrest, but in my eyes, I don't have enough context to infer if such a turn of events is fair.

I simply from my POV, don't see how getting arrested for a single noise complaint is fair, if the music was actually quiet and the Neighbor was rude and/or hypocritical, then I'd agree, if George Lee was playing loud to disturb people and just be an Asshole to this person, I'd disagree; but in this situation I don't see enough context to make a conclusion, that being to agree with George Lee, or stand against.

That's why I don't see this arrest as fair, because this isn't complete, there isn't enough detail from my POV for me to say that neighbor's punishment for a Noise Complaint was just.

Or Simply Put: All I know was that this Man got arrested for a single Noise Complaint, so I think this guy is an Asshole for bragging about it, if I had more context of both sides I would say I'm right or that I was wrong, but I can't choose either because I just don't have the information to choose.

I'm not asking for Address, Time, or the exact position of the Moon, I'm requesting some deeper insight on what happened to choose a side.

Call me a Nigger, Liberal Teenage Pussy, or whatever slur all you, George Lee, or others want, but this is my current position on the situation.

there's too much confusion...
i can't get no relief
Business men, they drink my wine
plowman dig my earth
none were level on the mind
nobody up at his word
hey, hey
No reason to get excited
the thief he kindly spoke
there are many here among us

but, uh...but you and i, we've been through that
and this is not our fate
so let us stop talkin' falsely now

Knowing the history of Jimi Hendrix, hearing his music shakes my soul. So much emotion in it. Not something that I listen to for easy pleasure.

@imr obot that's true, but he did have the best rendition of it.

The people that disliked this song should get covid tests done, because one of the major symptoms is no taste
