All Along the Watchtower
Lisa Gerrard Lyrics

"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 their view
While all the women came and went
Barefoot servants, too
Outside in the distance
A wildcat did growl
Two riders were approaching
The wind began to howl

This is very trip hop imo. Very good cover.

The Symbols

Cool version of Watchtower. My band recently used this tune as a soundcheck song while trying out some new recording gear.  The Symbols COVER All Along the Watchtower 


This is not exactly Gerard's typical style (if she has one, she's extremely gifted and can sing almost anything). I think you could give Portishead a try if you like this song.
