It's not about Jesus | Reviewer: Pauline Barraza | 10/25/09

I can't remember where, but I recently saw an old interview with one of the members of The Band. They said it was about how people in these small towns (in Canada, I think), have you pass along chores: oh, you're going to there, well take this to this person, and I'll stay here and do this for you. Kind of like paying it forward.



Perhaps not about Jesus' birth | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/25/09

I've heard elsewhere that "the weight" is a reference to ghonneria - the catching of an STD. Hence, with each verse, the leaving of something behind. This would be a less unusual topic for the 60s than Jesus' birth.



This song confuses me | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/21/07

I don't understand, are they homeless, are they dogs? Who's Crazy Chester. Who actuallt knows the true meaning of this song?



The Wait | Reviewer: Anonymous | 4/24/07

To me, it sounds like they are all at heaven's door, waiting to find out their fate; yet, the singer is there too early...before his time and is getting sent back from a near death experience



The Weight by The Band | Reviewer: Casey Farrell | 2/21/05

Song symbolizes Jesus' birth and how he was sent to earth by God to care for people. A rather unusual topic for the late 60's.
