Thanks be to God Jimi Hendrix fully understood the meaning of this song and exalted it into the position it deserves in the musical community. It must be frustrating to write as Dylan does and to have such straightforward lyrics so misunderstood; All Along The Watchtower - Bob Dylan - The Essential Bob Dylan why he does not like to comment on them.
Seems obvious if you read the Bible; old and new testament. The song All Along The Watchtower - Bob Dylan - The Essential Bob Dylan a conversation between Jesus and the devil. Jesus is the thief, the devil is the joker There must be some kind of way out of here said the joker to the thief, there's too much confusion, I can't get no relief. The thief is Jesus. Mark chapter 13, watch I shall come as a thief in the night, the Joker is the devil.
It is a conversation between the devil and Jesus. Jesus tells the Devil The devil thought he made a good deal getting domain of the earth and Jesus did not take him up on the deal when he rejected the devils offer to have all the earthly materials and domain if He rejected his Father when he was tempted on the mount.
So Jesus reminds the devil that this is not our fate, you made your deal there is no way out of it or here, so stop talking falsely, the devil is the master of lies and the hour is getting late is reminding the devil that his time of earthly domain is not going to last too much longer before Christs return to take back the earth through the promise of the Lord.
All along the watchtower princes kept the view, while all the woman 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 This lyric refers to the watchers of Christs return, the Princes keep a vigil while the people come and go on their daily business protected by those who keep the Lords watch. Two riders represent the start of the Apocalypse as told In Revelations of the great battle against the anti Christ the devil and Christs Hier Kommt Alex - Various - Nur - Hits II to take dominion of his people and the Earth and to fulfill his Father's the Lord's promise.
Nobody could have written this so simply and clearly in my opin as Mr. Dylan Thank you Mr. As the song opens, the thief comforts the Joker by telling him that, while many people think that life is but a joke, he and the Joker know that it is very wrong to consider life to be nothing more meaningful than that. So the first 'puzzle' in the song is: Why does the thief think that the Joker would find it revolting to equate life with jokes? Don't Jokers like jokes? Who is the Joker, anyway?
In Tarot cards, the Joker card represents Jesus Christ, holding him up to ridicule as a fool. This corresponds to those who mocked Jesus before and during his crucifixion. As the song begins, Jesus is on the cross next to the 'good thief' who recognizes Jesus All Along The Watchtower - Bob Dylan - The Essential Bob Dylan the Savior. Jesus is suffering his moment of doubt, talking about a "way out of here", "too much confusion", and complaining about the unworthy people he is about to sacrifice himself for "Businessmen" who "drink his wine", "plowmen" who "dig his earth", and others who don't know "what any of it is worth".
The thief reminds Jesus of their fate, using religious language "Let us not talk falsely now". He says that "the hour is getting late", that is, they are near death, but a death that will lead to resurrection and Judgment Day. The final stanza shifts the scene to a city guarded by prices in a watch tower. To understand the song, it is necessary to understand the reference to the ancient city of Babylon whose name means "confusion".
Babylon has long held a place among many religions as a symbol of excess and immoral power. Many references are made to Babylon in the Bible, both literally and allegorically. The Johnny Cash And The Tennessee Two* - Original Golden Hits Volume II in Babylon had believed that they were safe from attack because the city was protected, according to the historian Herodotus, by two sets of inner and outer walls.
The fall of Babylon came suddenly Burning Bridges - Garth Brooks - Ropin The Wind the Medes and the Persians overran the city in a night attack in B. The imagery in the song's final stanza regarding the "Watch Tower" and the "Princes" come from a biblical reference in Isaiah All Along The Watchtower - Bob Dylan - The Essential Bob Dylan the fall of Babylon: Isaiah: "Prepare the table, watch in the watch-tower, eat, drink: Arise, ye princes, and anoint the shield.
After their death and Resurrection, Judgment Day is at hand, as intuitively sensed by nature itself "A wildcat did growl. The wind began to howl". Christ and the thief symbolically return "Two riders Jeff Williams And The Clear Spacemen - White Under Green approaching" and destroy the city Dont Do This To Me - Deadman - Live At The Saxon Pub man in an Apocalypse for its worldly excesses.
The song is a parable, a warning, about the type of life we choose to live. That choice, often made thoughtlessly and treated lightly, is not a joke; instead, it is the most serious decision we have to make. Some puzzles in the song remain. Note that the Joker the Christ figure in my analysis is All Along The Watchtower - Bob Dylan - The Essential Bob Dylan the language of a street person "I can't get no relief" and is very agitated, while it is the thief who is "kindly", and who is talking in religious language talking about "fate" and saying things like "let us not talk falsely now".
The identities of the Joker and the thief appear to be Jay-Z - Purple Album. Perhaps this identity-reversal is part of the "confusion", or perhaps Dylan is saying that even a "common thief" can understand the righteous true path of God, something that totally eludes the "elite Princes" in society. By the way, it is worth noting that in the version of this song recorded by Jimi Hendrix, Hexdrix musically depicts the death and resurrection after the second stanza by a falling and then rising guitar sound it sounds like a metal spring dropping down and then bouncing back up.
Also, in the Hexdrix version, as the Apocalypse takes place after all stanzas have been sungHenxdrix plays a rising scale, culminating in a single high note played rapidly and repeatedly. This provides a "picture", in music, of the Apocalyptic events taking place, without having any explicit description of it in the lyrics. So, Dylan the Joker and Albert Grossman his manager, the Thief are in a car heading to the Columbia business offices in Rockefeller Center for new contract talks.
Dylan can't stand the situation. He Stab Wounds - Accessory - Titan unappreciated and misused by the CBS bureaucracy. I can't get no relief. Businessmen they drink my wine; plowmen dig my earth.

So let us not speak falsely now, the hour is getting late. All along the watchtower, princes kept the view, while all the women came and went, their foot-servants, too. Outside in the cold distance, a wildcat did growl. Two riders were approaching. The wind began to howl. All wrong. Dylan was clear on a video that he had sold his soul to the devil for fame and fortune. Selling your soul means half of your life is spent at these horrifying underground places.
