John denver - The weight

I pulled into Nazareth, was feelin' about half past dead
I just need some place where I can lay my head
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 lookin' for a place to hide
And 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 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 nothin' you can say
It's just ol' Luke and Luke's waitin' on the Judgment Day
Luke, my friend, what about young Anna Lee?"
He said, "do me a favor, 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

Catch a cannon ball now to take me down the line
My bag is sinkin' low and I do believe it's time
Said 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, yeah

I pulled into Nazareth, was feelin' about half past dead
I just need some place where I can lay my head
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

You put the load right on me
You put the load right on me, yeah
