The Weight Lyrics by Jackie Deshannon 



The Weight by Jackie Deshannon


I pulled in to Nazareth
I was feeling bout half past dead
I just need some place
Where I can lay my head

Hey, mister, can you tell me
Where can I find a bed
He just grinned, 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 bag
I went looking for a place to hide
When I saw old Carmen and
The Devil walking side by side
Well, I said, hey, Carmen
Come on, let's go downtown
She said, I got to go
But my friend can stick around

(CHORUS)

Go down, Miss Moses
There's nothing you can say
It's just old Luke, and Luke is
Waiting on the judgement day

Well, Luke, my friend
What about young Anna Lee
He said, do me a favor, hon
Won't you stay and
Keep Anna Lee company

(CHORUS)

Get your cannonball now
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)
