"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 groundbreaking seventh album from singer-songwriter Bob Dylan.

The song consists of three verses with a bridge after the second verse. It is done in a bluesy style, with a moderate tempo. Recorded at Columbia Recording Studios in Nashville, Tennessee, it incorporated local musicians Wayne Moss, Charlie McCoy, Kenneth A. Buttrey, Hargus Robbins, Jerry Kennedy, Joe South, Bill Aikins, Henry Strzelecki, and Jamie Robertson. Prevalent on the recording are brass instruments, piano, guitar, harmonica, bass guitar, drums, and electronic organ. The lyrics speak of a man who has grown tired of the constant guessing at his partner's feelings and is going to move on with his life rather than continue fighting the constant unpredictability of his partner. 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.

"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. One such performance was included as the first track on the resulting live album later that year, "Before the Flood". On this version, Dylan shouts out the last word of each verse for emphasis but did not always do so during the tour. Released as a single, it was a chartal dud, reaching only #66 on the Billboard Hot 100.
