Intro: C+g  G  Am  F  C+g  G  C+g  G


C+g                G              Am          '
It ain't no use to sit and wonder why, babe 
F        '           C   G7 
It don't matter, anyhow 
C+g                    G                Am    '
An' it ain't no use to sit and wonder why, babe 
D7      '              G   
If you don't know by now 
G7           C    '             C7       '
When your rooster crows at the break of dawn 
F             '          D7/F#   '
Look out your window and I'll be gone 
C+g           G        Am        F
You're the reason I'm travellin' on 
C+g           G7            C+g   G7
Don't think twice, it's all right 


It ain't no use in turnin' on your light, babe
That light I never knowed
An' it ain't no use in turnin' on your light, babe
I'm on the dark side of the road
Still I wish there was somethin' you would do or say
To try and make me change my mind and stay
We never did too much talkin' anyway
Don't think twice, it's all right

It ain't no use in callin' out my name, babe
Like you never did before
And It ain't no use in callin' out my name, babe
I can't hear you anymore
I'm a-thinkin' and a-wond'rin' walkin' all the way down the road
I once loved a woman, a child I'm told
I gave her my heart but she wanted my soul
Don't think twice, it's all right

I'm walking down that long and lonesome road babe
Where I'm bound, I can't tell
But goodbye's too good a word, gal
So I'll just say fare thee well
I ain't sayin' you treated me unkind
You could have done better but I don't mind
You just kinda wasted my precious time
But don't think twice, it's all right
But don't think twice, it's all right

Ending: C+g  G  Am  F  C+g  G  C+g  G (fade out)

Don't Think Twice, It's Alright - Bob Dylan
Don't Think Twice, It's Alright

Dylan once introduced "Don't Think Twice, It's All Right" as "a statement that maybe you can say to make yourself feel better... as if you were talking to yourself." The melody is based on an older song, "Who's Gonna Buy Your Chickens When I'm Gone." The melody was taught to Dylan by folksinger Paul Clayton, who had used the melody in his song "Who's Gonna Buy Your Ribbon Saw

As well as the melody, a couple of lines were taken from Clayton's "Who's Goin' to Buy You Ribbons When I'm Gone?" which was recorded in 1960, two years before Dylan wrote "Don't Think Twice." Lines taken word-for-word or slightly altered from the Clayton song are, "T'ain't no use to sit and wonder why, darlin'," and, "So I'm walkin' down that long, lonesome road."
