Weight C Em I pulled into Nazareth F C Just feeling about half past dead C Em F C I just need a place where I can lay my head C Em Hey mister, can you tell me F C Where a man might find a bed C Em He just grinned and shook my hand F C And no was all he said. (Chorus) C Em F C Em F Take a load off Fanny, take a load for free C Em F Take a load off Fanny C And, and, and you put the load right on me. I picked up my bag and 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. Go down Moses, there's nothing that you can say It's just old Luke and Luke's waiting on judgment day Hey Luke my friend, what about young Annalee He said do me a favor son Won't you stay and keep Annalee company? 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 O.K. my boy Won't you feed him when you can. Catch a cannonball 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 She sent me here with her regards for everyone. BJS
