The Weight Lyrics

The Weight by Sheryl Crow  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music



The Weight I pulled in to Nazareth, was feeling '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, ``No'' was all he said


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 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''


Take a load off, Fanny

Take a load for free

Take a load off, Fanny

And you put the load right on me


Go down Miss Moses, there's nothing you can say

It's just old Luke, and Luke's waiting on the judgement day

``Well, Luke my friend, what about young Anna-Lee?''

He said ``Do me a favour son, won't you stay and keep Anna-Lee

company?''


Take a load off, Fanny

Take a load for free

Take a load off, Fanny

And you put the load right on me


Crazy Chester followed me and he caught me in the fog

He said ``I will fix your rat if you'll take Jack my dog''

I said ``Wait a minute Chester, you know I'm a peaceful man''

He said ``That's okay boy, won't you feed him when you can?''


Take a load off, Fanny

Take a load for free

Take a load off, Fanny

And you put the load right on me


Catch a cannonball 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 you put the load right on me
