BandThe Weight

I pulled into Nazareth, was feeling 'bout 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, "No" was all he said. [Chorus] 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 bags, I went looking for a place to hide When I saw old Carmen and the Devil, walking side by side I said, "Hey, Carmen, c'mon, let's go downtown" She said, "I gotta go, but my friend can stick around" [Chorus] Go down, Miss Moses, ain't nothin' you can say It's just old Luke, and Luke's waiting on the judgment day Well, Luke, my friend, what about young Annalee He said, "Do me a favor, son, won't you stay and keep Annalee company" [Chorus] Crazy Chester followed me, and he caught me in the fog Said, "I will fix your rag, 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" [Chorus] Catch the cannonball, 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 [Chorus] © 2017
