The Weight - Lyrics

Pulled in to Nazareth
I was feeling 'bout half past dead
Looking for a place where
A man could rest his head
"Hey, mister, can you help me
Where a man might find a bed?"
He just smiled and smy hand
"No" was all he said

Take a load off Fanny
Take a load for free
Take a load off Fanny
You put the load right on...

So I went off looking for a place to hide
When I saw Carmen and the Devil
Walking side by side
I said "Hey Carmen,
Come on, let's go downtown?"
She said, "Well, I gotta go
But my friend here can stick around"

Take a load off Fanny
Take a load for free
Take a load off Fanny
You put the load right on...

I say hey Miss Moses, waitin' on the Judgement Day
It's just ol' Luke, and Luke's still got a lot to say
I said, hey Luke, what about poor Anna Lee?"
He said, "Do me a favor, son, won't ya stay and keep Anna Lee company?"

Take a load off Fanny
Take a load for free
Take a load off Fanny
And you put the load right on me
Crazy Chester followed me, and he caught me in the fog
He said, "I will fix your rack, if you'll take Jack, my dog."
I said, "Wait a minute, Chester, you know I'm a peaceful man."
He said, "That's okay, boy, won't you feed him when you can."

And take a load off Fanny
Take a load for free
Take a load off Fanny
And you put the load right on me
(You put the load right on me)

Catch a Cannonball, now, to take me down the line
My bag is sinkin' low and I do believe it's time
To get back to Miss Fanny, you know she's the only one
Who sent me here with her regards for everyone
