Bob Dylan – Most Likely You Go Your Way (And I’ll Go Mine) (Mark Ronson Remix (video))

Lyrics:

You say ya’ love me
And you’re thinkin’ of me
But ya’ know you could be wrong
You say you told me
That you wanta’ hold me
But ya’ know you’re not that strong
I just can’t do what I done before
I just can’t beg you anymore
I’m gonna let you pass
And I’ll go last
Then time will tell just who has fell
And who’s been left behind
When you go your way and I go mine

You say ya’ disturb me
And ya’ don’t deserve me
But ya’ know sometimes you lie
Ya’ say you’re shakin’
And you’re always achin’
But ya’ know how hard you try
Sometimes it gets so hard to care
It can’t be this way everywhere
And I’m gonna let you pass
Yes, and I’ll go last
Then time will tell who has fell
And who’s been left behind
When you go your way and I go mine

Well, the judge he holds a grudge
He’s gonna call on you
But he’s badly built
And he walks on stilts
Watch out he don’t fall on you

Ya say you’re sorry
for tellin stories
That ya know I believe are true
You say y’ got some
Other kinda lover
And yes, I believe ya’ do
Say my kisses are not like his
But this time I’m not gonna tell you why that is
I’m just gonna let you pass
Yes, and I’ll go last
Then time will tell who has fell
And who’s been left behind
When you go your way and I go mine

Most Likely You Go Your Way and I’ll Go Mine” is the first track of the second disc of the 1966 album Blonde on Blonde, the seventh album from singer-songwriter Bob Dylan. Dylan released the song as a single twice during his career, once in 1974, charting at #66 in the US, and again in 2007, charting at #51 in the UK.

Recording

Recorded at Columbia Music Row Studios in Nashville, Tennessee, on March 9, 1966,[1] it featured veteran Nashville studio musicians Wayne Moss, Charlie McCoyKenneth A. ButtreyHargus “Pig” Robbins, Jerry Kennedy, Joe South, Bill Aikins, and Henry Strzelecki, along with Robbie Robertson. Prevalent on the recording are trumpetpianoguitarharmonicabass guitardrums and electronic organ.

Music and lyrics

The song consists of three verses with a bridge after the second verse. It is done in a bluesy style, with a moderate tempo. The lyrics speak of a man who has grown tired of constantly guessing at his girlfriend’s feelings and is going to move on with his life rather than continue fighting the unpredictability of his girlfriend. The song presents a feeling of change and movement that was one of the trademarks of the 1960s. This song has a swinging beat and is representative of the album’s sound as a whole.

Live performances

“Most Likely You Go Your Way and I’ll Go Mine” gained significant visibility when it was frequently the concert opening and encore song on the Bob Dylan and The Band 1974 Tour.[2] One such performance was included later that year as the first track on the resulting live album, Before the Flood. On this version, Dylan shouts out the last word of each verse for emphasis, but he did not always do so during the tour. Released as a single, it reached #66 on the Billboard Hot 100.

2007 version

Mark Ronson reworked and remixed the song in promotion for Dylan’s 2007 compilation Dylan. Despite not appearing on the album, this version was released as an online single. A music video of the song is available on Dylan’s official website. This version also charted at #51 in the UK.
