"Walkin' Down the Line" is a song written by Bob Dylan and first recorded by him in November 1962 for Broadside magazine. Dylan recorded the song again in March 1963 for his music publisher Witmark and this version was released in 1991 on The Bootleg Series Volumes 1–3 (Rare & Unreleased) 1961–1991.

The lyrics recount the troubles of a hobo walking down the railroad tracks.

It was sung by Arlo Guthrie at Woodstock and his performance appears on the 1994 Woodstock 25th Anniversary Box Set.
