Today's song of the day is All Along The Watchtower. Written by Bob Dylan in 1967 and released in 1968 on his John Wesley Harding album, it is the most performed live song by Dylan. Also in 1968 Jimi Hendrix also recorded a version of this song on his Electric Ladyland album. Both versions are incredible but so different. I encourage you to listen to both versions. Let me know what you think.

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
Business men, they drink my wine
Plowman dig my earth
None were level on the mind
Nobody up at 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
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
