This is a solo acoustic cover of The Band's "The Weight" as performed 
by Brian Fallon of The Gaslight Anthem. X is close to Gmaj7, but the A
string is left open. It's supposedly called G/F# or Gmaj7(minus3) or
whatever. I'll just call it X.

Intro/Break
G-X-Cadd9-D-Cadd9

Verse
G             Bm           Cadd9                    G
Pulled in to Nazareth, was feeling 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, shook my hand, "No" was all he said

Chorus
G       D        Cadd9
Take a load off, Fanny
G       D       Cadd9
Take a load for free
G       D        Cadd9
Take a load off, Fanny...And you put the load right on me

Break

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"

Chorus
Break

Go down Miss Moses, there's nothing you can say  
It's just old Luke, and Luke's waiting on the judgement day  
I said "Luke my friend, what about young Anna-Lee?" 
He said "Do me a favor son, won't you stay and keep Anna-Lee company?"

Chorus
Break

Crazy Chester followed me and he caught me in the fog  
He said "I will fix your raft if you'll take Jack my dog" 
I said "Wait a minute Chester, now I'm a peaceful man"
He said "That's okay boy, won't you feed him when you can?"

Chorus
Break

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

Chorus
Break
Chorus

On the video I saw he plays the intro with G, G/F#, Em7, D, Cadd9 when he plays it the second time through. the first time looks like A7sus4 in place of the Em7, but the microphone was in the way when he played the progression the first time, so I didn't really get a clear view.

I want to post or [tab]
