Don't Think Twice, It's Alright
Composer: Bob Dylan

Don't Think Twice was performed once by the Grateful Dead with Bob Dylan in 1986.

First recorded by Dylan on Nov 14 1962. Also recorded by Dylan with Johnny Cash during the Nashville Skyline sessions on February 18, 1969, but not released.

Some suggest that Don't Think Twice could have been derived from a Paul Clayton song Who'll Buy You Ribbons When I'm Gone, there are a number of similarities in the lyrics. According to Dylan biographer Robert Shelton, "Clayton and Dylan had an amicable legal tiff, settling without rancor out of court." Clayton's song is partially based on the traditional song Scarlet Ribbons.
