Intro:  G  Am  C  G  (6 times)


Verse 1:
-------

G                Am
Clouds so swift, rain won't lift
C                G
Gate won't close, railings froze
G                 Am                 
Get your mind off wintertime
C                 G
You ain't goin' nowhere

Chorus:
------

G        Am
Whoo-ee, ride me high
C                   G
Tomorrow's the day my bride's gonna come
G            Am
Oh, oh, are we gonna fly
C                G
Down in the easy chair

Break:  G  Am  C  G  (4 times)


Verse 2:
-------

I don't care how many letters they sent
Morning came and morning went
Pick up your money and pack up your tent
You ain't goin' nowhere

Chorus:
------

Whoo-ee, ride me high
Tomorrow's the day my bride's gonna come
Oh, oh, are we gonna fly
Down in the easy chair

Break:  G  Am  C  G  (4 times)


Verse 3:
-------

Buy me a flute and a gun that shoots
Tailgates and substitutes
Strap yourself to the tree with roots
You ain't goin' nowhere

Chorus:
------

Whoo-ee, ride me high
Tomorrow's the day my bride's gonna come
Oh, oh, are we gonna fly
Down in the easy chair

Break:  G  Am  C  G  (8 times)

Verse 4:
-------

Genghis Khan he could not keep
All his kings supplied with sleep
We'll climb that hill, no matter how steep
When we come up to it

Chorus:
------

Whoo-ee, ride me high
Tomorrow's the day my bride's gonna come
Oh, oh, are we gonna fly
Down in the easy chair

You Ain't Goin' Nowhere - Bob Dylan
You Ain't Goin' Nowhere - Bob Dylan
"You Ain't Goin' Nowhere" is a song written by Bob Dylan in 1967 in Woodstock, New York, during the self-imposed exile from public appearances that followed his July 29, 1966 motorcycle accident. A recording of Dylan performing the song in September 1971 was released on the Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits Vol. II album in November of that year, marking the first official release of the song by its author. Earlier 1967 recordings of the song, performed by Dylan and the Band, were issued on the 1975 album The Basement Tapes and the 2014 album The Bootleg Series Vol. 11: The Basement Tapes Complete.

The Byrds recorded a version of the song in 1968 and issued it as a single. This was the first commercial release of the song, predating Dylan's own release by three years. A later cover by ex-Byrds members Roger McGuinn and Chris Hillman reached the top 10 of the Hot Country Songs charts in 1989.

"You Ain't Goin' Nowhere" has also been covered by many other artists, including Joan Baez, Unit 4 + 2, and Glen Hansard with Markéta Irglová.
