I pulled in to Nazareth, I was feeling about 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, 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 got to 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 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

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"

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

Get your 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… you put the load right on me

I pulled in to Nazareth, I was feeling about 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, 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
Yeah
