So Richie and I were talking and somehow we got around to Jimi Hendrix- specifically, “All Along the Watchtower”.
I always thought the line was “Come on over/drink my wine/come and dig my herb.”
Richie says the line is “Businessmen come and drink my wine/plowmen dig my earth.”
Did Jimi modify Bob’s original lyrics? Did Jimi mishear the lyrics? Am I mishearing Jimi’s lyrics?
It’s entirely possible. I’m still convinced Jimi sings “Excuse me while I kiss this guy.”
