"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 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, Earl Scruggs, Counting Crows, The Dandy Warhols and Glen Hansard with Markéta Irglová.
