"Outlaw Blues" is a song by Bob Dylan, recorded on January 14, 1965. It was originally released on Dylan's fifth studio album, Bringing It All Back Home.

An acoustic version of the song, recorded the day before the album track, was released in 2005 as part of the Three Song Sampler EP, which contained outtakes from the soundtrack of the Martin Scorsese Dylan biopic, No Direction Home.

On September 20, 2007, Dylan played this song live in concert for the first time during a show in Nashville. He was joined onstage for the performance by Jack White of The White Stripes.[1]

In February 2017, a segment on Full Frontal with Samantha Bee that celebrated Black History Month strongly implied that the "woman in Jackson" mentioned in the song was civil rights activist Dorie Ladner, sister of fellow activist "Joyce Ladner".[2]
