    Now might be a good time to ask people for whom A and B are true what, exactly, Fonda was trying to express when he said "We blew it man...we blew it..."

    Was he talking about the entire counterculture movement, his entire generation, everyone living in the modern world, his filming budget, etc, etc, etc?

    I think he was making reference to their dope dealing days... I think he would have preferred the lifestyle of the commune instead of selling drugs for $$$.

    Either that or it was common to say "we blew it, man" in those days so he tossed it in for no good reason :)

    They skipped one verse, but it's still a great song. I saw The Band with Dylan @ the Seattle coliseum in 1969 great show.
