    it's actually pretty simple. it's kinda about dylan just getting really big and then the "businessmen" they try to use him to make more money and stuff. (the record company was treating him badly at the time). It's about Dylan wanting to get away from the money (and thiefs and jokers) trying to exploit him and just make music.

    "All along the watchtower, princes kept the view
    While all the women came and went, barefoot servants, too.

    Outside in the distance a wildcat did growl,
    Two riders were approaching, the wind began to howl."

    of course, nobody knows what this stuff really means.
    Perhaps not even Dylan himself.
