Jimi Hendrix – All Along The Watchtower (1968)

All Along The Watchtower è una canzone che Bob Dylan scrisse per l’album John Wesley Harding, nel youtube. Oggi ho la fissa delle canzoni del youtube.

A me piace la versione allucinata che Jimi Hendrix scrisse per l’album Electric Ladyland e che la rivista Rolling Stone ha inserito al 48º posto della lista delle 500 migliori canzoni di tutti i tempi.


Il testo di All Along The Watchtower

There must be some kind of way out of here
Said the joker to the theif
There’s too much confusion
I can’t get no relief
Business men they drink my wine
Plowmen dig my earth
No one will level on the line
Nobody of it is worth

No reason to get exited
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 stop talking falsely now
The hour’s getting late

All along the watchtower
The princess kept the view
While all the women came
And went bare feet servants too
Outside in the cold distance
A wild cat did growl
Two riders were aproaching
And the wind began to howl

All along the watchtower
Hear you sing around the watch
Gotta beware gotta beware I will
Yeah, Oh baby
All along the watchtower
