(to the furthest of my knowledge) I dont know about lead, that could be right, but rhythm is four chords over and over: G A G F I could get the lead tab from my friend maybe, if anyone wants it.. Here are some lyrics that might help you out..: 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 Business men they drink my wine Plowmen they dig my earth Noone would ever compromise Nobody of this world No reason to get excited The thief he kindly spoke There are many among us Who feel that life is but a joke but you and I we've been through that And this is not our place So let us stop talking falsely now The hour's getting late All along the watchtower Princess 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 All along the watchtower All along the watchtower All along the watchtower Alex M. -- "Beef Like A Rhino" -Drink food, not Water From captiva@ash-uky.campus.mci.net Wed May 29 16:59:20 1996 Received: from post-office.nevada.edu (post-office.nevada.edu [131.216.1.11]) by mailhost.tcs.tulane.edu (8.6.12/8.5) with ESMTP id LAA23969; Wed, 29 May 1996 11:59:17 -0500 Received: from ash-uky-01.campus.mci.net (ash-uky-01.campus.mci.net [204.71.75.157]) by post-office.nevada.edu (8.6.12/8.6.4) with ESMTP id JAA27726 for ; Wed, 29 May 1996 09:56:49 -0700 Received: from s21-pm01.ash-uky.campus.mci.net (s21-pm01.ash-uky.campus.mci.net [206.26.104.50]) by ash-uky-01.campus.mci.net (8.7.5/8.6.12) with SMTP id MAA15417 for ; Wed, 29 May 1996 12:56:34 -0400 (EDT) Date: Wed, 29 May 1996 12:56:34 -0400 (EDT) Message-Id: <199605291656.MAA15417@ash-uky-01.campus.mci.net> X-Sender: captiva@ash-uky.campus.mci.net X-Mailer: Windows Eudora Light Version 1.5.2 Mime-Version: 1.0 Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii" To: guitar@nevada.edu From: James Subject: All along the watchtower: as played by Dave Matthews band X-email-warning: As a cautionary note, there have been recent instances of people forging mail addresses.

X-Status: Status: RO "All Along the Watchtower"-as played by Dave Matthews Band Tab by Dylan Greenwood This song was written by Bob Dylan, but has done by DMB on their very first album which can only get at live shows or through mail. They also do it a lot in concert. It's a great song! Enjoy!!! It starts out with just Dave playing his acoustic.

Play this part for the intro and suring the first and third verses ============================================================================= After the first verse is over the band comes in and they pick up the pace a little and Dave plays the normal chords(Am G F G.) ============================================================================= here's a summary of the song: RIFF 1 "There must be some way outta here" Said the joker to the theft There's too much confusion I can't get no release But businessmen, they drink my wine Come and dig my earth None of them along the line Know what any of it is worth Am G F G No reason to get excited The theftly kindly spoke There are many here among us Who feel that live 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's getting late RIFF 1 All along the watchtower Princes kept the view While all the women came and went Bare-foot servants too But outside in the distance A wildcat did growl Two writers were approaching The wind begins to howl RIFF 1 This should be exactly what he plays, I'll try to tab out some stuff from the their new CD.
