#AtoZ Dylan – “A” is for All Along the Watchtower


“All I can do is be me, whoever that is.” ~Bob Dylan

Dylan young

“All Along the Watchtower” originally appeared on Dylan’s 1967 album, John Wesley Harding. The cover by Jimi Hendrix may be the best known and most recognized, but AATW has been recorded by the Dave Matthews Band, U2, Neil Young, Bryan Ferry, and Pearl Jam, among countless others.

Several people have written that the lyrics in this song echo lines in Isaiah 21:5-9

Wherever possible throughout the month, I’ll include a link to the lyrics. Click HERE for the lyrics to “All Along the Watchtower.”
