John, did you ever hear this story about Dylan's response to a mistake McGuinn made with the lyrics to "You Ain't Goin' Nowhere"?
"... Dylan noticed that McGuinn had taken an accidental liberty in “You Ain’t Goin’ Nowhere,” singing the lines “pick up your money, pick up your tent.” In his own 1971 studio recording, issued on Bob Dylan’s Greatest Hits, Volume II, Dylan changed the song and added some backhand: "Pack up our money, pull up your tent, McGuinn!'"
This one is probably my favorite. I include it in. virtually every gig, often opening with it.
