"As a performer, I understand it takes a picture of me with the Pope or a president to get debt cancellation onto the front pages. Otherwise it's just too obscure a melody line."

All Along The Watchtower Lyrics

Found On:


Love: Live From The Point Depot (2004)

Note: U2 has released different versions of most singles in different countries. We are not showing every cover image in this space, just one that's representative of each release.

"All Along The Watchtower" (live from Point Depot)

Rock'n'roll
That's all, folks

There must be some way out of here
Said the joker to the thief
There's too much confusion here
I can't get no relief
Businessmen, they drink my wine
Plowmen dig my earth
None of them know along the line
What any of this is worth

No reason to get excited
The thief, he kindly spoke
There are many among us
Who don't even get the joke
You and I, we've been through that
That is not our fate
Let us not talk falsely now
The hour is getting late
Late, yeah

All along the watchtower
The princes kept the view
While the horsemen came and went
And the barefoot servants, too
Outside in the distance
A wildcat did growl
Two riders approaching
And the wind begins to howl

A rider comes here to him
Rides up to the first door
Probably would have been
Meant to live, meant to live
To die, to sing, to soar
To fly home, to run, to run

(This song was written by Bob Dylan)
