The Weight (Travis)

I pulled into Nazareth, was feelin' '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, and "No" was all he said Take a load off Fanny Take a load for free Take a load off Fanny And (and) (and) you can put the load right on me Picked up my bag, 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, "I gotta go, but m'friend can stick around" Take a load off Fanny Take a load for free Take a load off Fanny And (and) (and) you can put the load right on me Go down, Miss Moses, there's nothin' 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 favour, son, won't you stay an' keep Anna Lee company?" Take a load off Fanny Take a load for free Take a load off Fanny And (and) (and) you can 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, I'm a peaceful man" He said, "That's OK, just feed him when you can" Take a load off Fanny Take a load for free Take a load off Fanny And (and) (and) you can 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 (and) (and) you can put the load right on me
