The Weight


I pulled into Nazareth - 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 - 'No', was all he said
refrain:
Take a load off Fannie
Take a load for free
Take a load off Fannie
And... (and)... and
You put the load (put the load) right on me
I picked up my bags - I went looking for a place to hide
When I saw ol' Carmen and The Devil walkin' side by side
I said, 'Hey Carmen, come on let's go downtown.'
She said, 'I gotta go, but my friend can stick around.'
refrain
Go down Miss Moses - there's nothin' that you can say
It's just ol' 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?'
refrain
Crazy Chester followed me and caught me in the fog
Said, 'I will fix your rack if you'll take Jack, my dog.'
I said, 'Wait a minute, Chester. No, I'm a peaceful man.'
Said, 'That's ok, boy, won't you feed him when you can?'
r
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 Fannie, you know she's the only one
Who sent me here with her regards for everyone
