  John Wesley Harding recording session 2, Nashville TN - 6.nov.1967, album version  

''There must be some way out of here'', said the joker to the thief
''There's too much confusion, i can't get no relief
Businessmen they drink my wine, plowmen dig my earth
None of them along the line know what any of it is worth.''

''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 you an' i we've been thru that, an' this is not our fate
So let us not talk falsely now, the hour is gettin' late.''

All along the watchtower, princes kept the view 
While all the women came an' went, barefoot servants too
Outside in the distance a wild cat did growl
Two riders where approachin', the wind began to howl.
