“All Along the Watchtower” is one of the most famous songs of the 20th century, written and recorded by Bob Dylan. The song first appeared on Dylan’s eighth studio album, John Wesley Harding, released in 1967.

From Wikipedia: Covered by numerous artists in various genres, “All Along the Watchtower” is strongly identified with the interpretation Jimi Hendrix recorded for the album Electric Ladyland with the Jimi Hendrix Experience. The Hendrix version … became a Top 20 single in 1968, received a Grammy Hall of Fame award in 2001, and was ranked 47th in Rolling Stone magazine’s 500 Greatest Songs of All Time in 2004.

Hendrix created an electrifying rock classic, hailed by The Telegraph and Rolling Stone as the greatest cover of all time:

All Along the Trump Tower

“There must be some kind of way outta here”
Said his staffers in their grief
“There’s too much confusion
We can’t get no relief
CNN report his crimes
They dig to unearth
All of them along the line
Know what only counts is Facts First”
Hey! Hey!

“No reason to get excited”
The chief, he blindly spoke
“The many alt-right among us
Who feel my life is to provoke
But you and I, we’ve been through that
And this is not my fate
So let us keep talkin’ falsely now
The hour is getting late”
Hey!

(Guitar Solo)

Hey!

All along the Trump Tower
Grifters kept the view
While all the Russians came and went
Barefoot lawyers, too
Outside in the cold distance
A trumpet did sound
Two riders were approaching
And his heart began to pound
Hey!

All along the Trump Tower
All along the Trump Tower
