"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.



Recorded at Columbia Music Row Studios in Nashville, Tennessee, on March 9, 1966,[1] it featured veteran Nashville studio musicians Wayne Moss, Charlie McCoy, Kenneth A. Buttrey, Hargus Robbins, Jerry Kennedy, Joe South, Bill Aikins, and Henry Strzelecki. Robbie Robertson, lead guitarist on Dylan's 1965 and 1966 tours with the group later to become known as The Band, also appears on the track. Prevalent on the recording are trombone, piano, guitar, harmonica, bass guitar, drums, 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 partner's feelings and is going to move on with his life rather than continue fighting the 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.

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 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.

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.
