Clouds so swift, rain won't lift,
railing's froze, the gate won't close;
Get your mind off wintertime,
'cause you ain't goin' nowhere.

Ooee, ride me high,
tomorrow's the day
my bride's gonna come;
Oh Lord, are we gonna fly,
down in my easy chair.

Buy me flutes and a gun that shoots,
tailgates and substitutes;
Grab yourself a tree with roots,
'cause you ain't goin' nowhere.

Ooee, ride me high,
tomorrow's the day
my bride's gonna come;
Oh Lord, are we gonna fly,
down in my easy chair.

Well, I don't care how many letters they sent,
morning came and the morning went;
So, pack up your money and pick up your tent,
you ain't goin' nowhere.

Ooee, ride me high,
tomorrow's the day
my bride's gonna come;
Oh Lord, are we gonna fly,
down in my easy chair.

Genghis Khan, he could not keep
all his men supplied with sleep;
Gonna climb that hill, Lord,
no matter how steep,
till we get up to it.

Ooee, ride me high,
tomorrow's the day
my bride's gonna come;
Oh Lord, are we gonna fly,
down in my easy chair.

Ooee, ride me high,
tomorrow's the day
my bride's gonna come;
Oh Lord, are we gonna fly,
down in my easy chair.

[FADING] Ooee, ride me high,
tomorrow's the day
my bride's gonna come;
Oh Lord, are we gonna fly,
down in my easy chair.

From Wikipedia:
A recording of Dylan performing You Ain't Goin' Nowhere was first officially released on the Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits Vol. II album in 1971. An earlier 1967 recording of the song, performed by Dylan and The Band, was issued in 1975 on the album The Basement Tapes. The Byrds also recorded a version of the song in 1968 and issued it as a single. The Byrds' version is notable for being the first commercial release of the song, predating Dylan's own version by three years. The song has been covered by many artists, including Joan Baez (1968) and Earl Scruggs (1972).
