Lyrics for singles by Jimi Hendrix

All Along The Watchtower
Hey Joe

All Along The Watchtower

"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

"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 stop talkin' 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
And the wind began to howl

Hey Joe

Hey Joe
Where you going with that gun in your hand
I'm gonna kill my old lady
You know I caught her messin' around with another man
