Songtekst

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
No, was all he said

Take a load off, Fanny
Take a load for free
Take a load off, Fanny
And, and, and you put the load right on me

I picked up my bag
I 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 my friend can stick around

Take a load off, Fanny
Take a load for free
Take a load off, Fanny
And, and, 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 Judgement Day
Well Luke, my friend
What about young Anna Lee
He said: do me a favor, son
Won't ya stay and keep Anna Lee company

Take a load off, Fanny
Take a load for free
Take a load off, Fanny
And, and, 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 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 okay, boy
Won't you feed him when you can

Yeah, take a load off, Fanny
Take a load for free
Take a load off, Fanny
And, and, and you put the load right on me

Catch a cannonball
Now to take me down the line
My bag is sinkin' 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 put the load right on me
