The Weight Lyrics

I pulled into Nazareth, was feelin' 'bout half past
dead I just need someplace 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

Take a load off Fanny, take a load for free Take a load
off Fanny, and... and... and... You put the load, put
the load right on me

I picked up my bags, I went lookin' for a place to hide
When I saw Carmen and the Devil walkin' side by side I
said 'Hey Carmen, come on let's go downtown' She said
'No, I've got to go, but my friend can stick around'


Go down Miss Moses, there's nothin' that you can say
It's just old Luke, and Luke's waitin' 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'


Crazy Chester followed me, and he caught me in the fog
He said 'I'll fix your rack if you'll take Jack my dog'
I said 'Wait a minute Chester, you know I'm a peacful
man' He said 'That's okay boy, won't you feed him when
you can'


Get your cannonball now to take me down the et your
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
