"Most Likely You Go Your Way (And I'll Go Mine)" as written by and Bob Dylan....
You say you love me and you're
Thinkin’ of me, but you
Know you could be wrong
You say you told me that you
Wanna hold me, but you
Know you’re not that strong
I just can’t do what I done before
I just can’t beg you anymore
I’m gonna let you pass
And I’ll go last
Then time will tell just who fell
And who’s been left behind
When you go your way and I go mine

You say you disturb me and you
Don’t deserve me but you
Know sometimes you lie
You say you’re shakin’ and you're
Always achin’, but you
Know how hard you try
Sometimes it gets so hard to care
It can’t be this way ev’rywhere
And I’m gonna let you pass
Yes, and I’ll go last
Then time will tell who has fell
And who’s been left behind
When you go your way and I go mine

Well and , the judge, he holds a grudge
He’s gonna call on you
But he’s badly built and he walks on stilts
Watch out he don’t fall on you

You say you’re sorry for
Tellin’ stories that you
Know I believe are true
You say ya got some otha
Kinda lover and yes, I believe you do
You say my kisses are not like his
But this time I’m not gonna tell you why that is
I’m just gonna let you pass
Yes, and I’ll go last
Then time will tell who has fell
And who’s been left behind
When you go your way and I go mine

    General CommentI'm just writing here because no one else has. Impossible, considering that this is the best farewell-and-good-luck song ever, even better than "Don't think twice".
    I know that the middle part is refered to a play about Rimbaud's life, so I would appreciate some background on that.

    General CommentI don't know if I like it better than "Don't Think Twice." They kind of seem to say the same thing, with vastly different tones. Damn good song, though.

    Which part refers to a play about Rimbaud? I didn't catch that.

    General CommentBy that time Dylan went to see a play about Rimbaud's life, and there was a judge who walked on stills. I don't know more than that, that's why I'm asking

    General Commentthis song is a perfect depiction of actions speaking louder than words. she says all these things, but never follows through on them. he's decided that it's time for him to move on and see where it takes him. good luck and goodbye indeed.

    General CommentI think these lyrics have been interpreted slightly incorrectly. I think the correct line is 'Time will tell, who has *failed*'.

    General CommentI always thought "let you pass" was "lick you ass".

    Years of immature amusement.. all a lie.

    General CommentIt's been said that Blonde On Blonde was partly inspired by Edie Sedgwick, and this line is probably the most obvious to me in reference to her drug use:

    "You say you're shakin'
    And you're always achin',
    But you know how hard you try."
