You Ain't Goin' Nowhere
Bob Dylan live   | Byrds altJoan Baez | Rosanne Cash | Nitty Gritty alt with Shania |
Clouds so swift ~ Rain won’t lift
Gate won’t close ~ Railings froze
Get your mind off wintertime
You ain’t goin’ nowhere

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!

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

Buy me a flute ~ And a gun that shoots
Tailgates and substitutes ~ Strap yourself
To the tree with roots
You ain’t goin’ nowhere

Genghis Khan ~ He could not keep
All his kings ~ Supplied with sleep
We’ll climb that hill no matter how steep
When we get up to it
