Stuart Marty - The Weight



Written by Robbie Robertson


I pulled into Nazareth, was feeling about half past dead

I Just need some place here 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 and "no" was all he said

Take a load off Fanny, take a load for free

Take a load off Fanny

And (and) you put the load right on me


I picked up my bags, went lookin' for a place to hide

When I saw ole 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) you put the load right on me


Go down Moses, there's nothin' that you can say

It's just ol' Luke and Luke's waitin' on the Judgment Day

"Well Luke my friend, what about young Anna Lee"

He said "Do me a favor son, woncha stay and keep Anna Lee company"


Take a load off Fanny, take a load for free

Take a load off Fanny

And (and) you put the load right on me


Catch a cannon ball now to take me on down the line

My bag is sinkin' low and I do believe it's time

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) you put the load right on me
