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

Said the joker to the thief
"There's too much confusion

Businessmen they drink my wine

None will level on the line
Nobody offered his word"
Hey!

The thief, he kindly spoke

But, uh, but you and I, we've been through that

Hey are you guys gonna ever remix/remaster these? Maybe have Niles Martin help with the 1st couple albums?

I don't think they need a heavy treatment. Just cleaning up and isolating a few of the instruments and tracks so they sound their best.

I only suggest it because of a recent comparison I made between the radio and my CD version of All Along...
The song popped on the radio, and it sounded massive and heavy. Yet I thought I could do better because I had the
CD version! So I put that on, and it sounded flat and squished. I couldn't get it to sound great even after tweaking the EQ.

So I think it's time to take a look at that since you guys manage the whole estate and everything. There are tons of of
folks who love the songs and would love to participate in making sure its A+....Just a thought from a fan and music lover.

Not many people know it, but Jimi Hendrix was perfectionist when it comes to this song. Studio people tried to rush him (because time and tape were both expensive) but story has it that he had over 50 takes on this song with just the guitar parts to make it absolutely perfect, the way he wanted it to be in his mind. Safe to say, you can hear it. Absolute perfection in every possible way.

Hendrix actually got Bassist guitar Noel Redding Pissed off and he just Left after all those 'Takes' that Hendrix took. The Bass number on this was actually done by Hendrix.

They say he played his guitar morning noon and night. Like on the bus in Seattle, in a restaurant, wherever he was.

I really thank my father and my friends for pulling me into the rock genre, though they never listened to anything outside of the 80's-90's most famous i was always surprised they never heard Hendrix's songs.
Today as a 16 Year old i started to learn How to play guitar in hopes of becoming as good as Hendrix some day, and maybe even make a Band with the boys.

We had a juke box in our student union with this song on it, played it every day for three years. A trip to Nam and two years later played it every day till I flunked out. Might still be there.
