Great mixing and pressing job! It is a North American term for being conned, or scammed. This is an extremely valid use of the word. But also, when corn is shucked, it is stripped, used and the core is disposed of. Robertson understands the frustrations of the lower strata of society: of major lyricists, only Springsteen surpasses Robertson in the modern era in his empathy and understanding of poverty and the struggles of the working classes though Robertson possibly understands the homeless and nearly homeless better than Springsteen - his upbringing and those years on the road were a hard, but effective teacher.
Robertson takes a pessimistic view in this song - a more optimistic view is taken in 'Life is a Carnival', for example. The Band, for all their technical ability and genuine talent, often ended songs inconclusively. Songs often just end. It also leaves the song and therefore the story hanging. Stage Fright itself is an album which has darker songs, and songs which may seem one thing, but also another. It can be read as a metaphor for the Band's success - despite the fame and the money, things aren't any better - in some ways, they're worse, because the fans see a successful musical entity, but in reality, things are rough.
Another song in this vein is 'Time to Kill, which reads as a paean to domestic bliss, but may also suggest boredom and frustration. The driving rhythm of 'Shape I'm In' does not suggest the quite sad story it tells, though it does suggest a level of anger. It was one of the Band's better songs, and perhaps the most performed Band song by other ensembles with the exception of 'The Weight'. After Richard Manuel's death, Rick Danko took the lead.
