Bob Dylan All Along The Watchtower Lyrics

Last updated: 11/20/2014 02:42:06 AM

"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 the 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.

In reference to: CandeloGuitar’s review dated October 18,2014
I was happy to see that some one is reading the other scriptures, besides the first 5 books of Moses, and calling it The Torah. Ezekial is one of our favorite books. As I opened to Ezekial 37 to write a response to your review. My eyes focused on the part where the dry bones of those who were slain shall live and they become an exceedingly great army when they are raised from the dead. Right at that moment, my jewish friend, Dennis, tapped me on the shoulder and told me about the rabbis who had just got killed in Jerursalam I told him they will probably be among the ones who God will raise from the dead for the “exceeding great army” Ezekial 37! It also, says in that same chapter all of Israel shall be saved, King David will be our shepherd, and the LORD’s sanctuary will be in the midst there. I believe in the LORD of Host, the God of Israel.
What is a jew? A jew is someone who is born from the seed of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. A person can change their beliefs, but they can’t change their blood. Even the nation of Israel recognizes a person being jewish if their mother or father is jewish. Some jews don’t even believe in God. They are still jewish. According to Ezekial 37, the whole house of Israel shall be saved. The LORD keeps His covenant with Abraham and David. Their seed will live forever....Israel (the seed of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob) lives forever!
They still will have to have their sins atoned for to stand holy before a holy God. No problem....”He was wounded for our transgressions, bruised for our iniquities, the chastisement of our peace was upon him, and with his stripes we are healed.”...”All we like sheep have gone astray, we have turned everyone to our own way, and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.” Isaiah Chapter 53.
As far as Bob Dylan’s lyrics go, nobody that we know of changes his lyrics for him. If lyrics are changed, most likely Bob Dylan does it because he has the copyright.

Quit Your Low Down Ways | Reviewer: CandeloGuitar | 10/16/14

Do not suggest that you are changing the lyrics of Bob Dylan's song....since he's Jewish, he does understand the Torah's ending is different than the Xian one!
J-man is not MaShiAcH or G-d.
Ezekiel 37:24
Numbers 23:19

All Along the Watchtower | Reviewer: Glory Cloud Revelation | 6/12/14

Bob Dylan's sings this song as clear as a bell, the music and words add to an erie atmosphere like the fog rolling in from the sea. There is a mysterious ending to this that leaves you guessing…
"Outside in the distance a wildcat did growl
Two riders were approaching, the wind began to howl."
Glory Cloud Revelation would enjoy this song more if it ended like this:
I heard them say, “What do we do, now?”

The moon looked red as fire, the sky was black,
All of a sudden there was a bright shining light
...Don’t look back;
Could it be the Lord coming like a thief in the night!

*Watch and be ready for you know not what hour your Lord may come"
( Words of Jesus inMatthew 24 )
