The Weight
I pulled into Nazareth, was feeling about half past dead
I just need some place where I can lay my head
Hey mister, can you tell me where a man might find a bed?
He just grinned and shook my hand and "No" was all he said

Take a load off Fanny
Take a load for free
Take a load off Fanny
And you put the load right on me

I picked up my bag, I went 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 "I gotta go but my friend can stick around"

Take a load off Fanny
Take a load for free
Take a load off Fanny
And you put the load right on me

Go down, Miss Moses, there's nothing you can say
It's just old Luke and Luke's waiting on the Judgement Day
Well, Luke, my friend, what about young Anna Lee?
He said "Do me a favor son, won't you 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"

Take a load off Fanny
Take a load for free
Take a load off Fanny
And you put the load right on me

Catch a cannon ball now to take me down the line
My bag is sinking 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

Take a load off Fanny
Take a load for free
Take a load off Fanny
And you put the load right on me
