[Verse 1]

   G                Bm             C                       G
I pulled in to Nazareth, I was feeling about half past dead.
   G                Bm             C                       G
I picked up my bag.  I went looking for a place to hide.
   G                Bm             C                       G
Go down, Miss Moses, there's nothing you can say.
   G                Bm             C                       G
Crazy Chester followed me and he caught me in the fog.
   G                Bm             C                       G
Get your Canonball now, to take me down the line.


[Verse 2]

G                Bm             C                       G
I just need some place where I can lay my head.
G                Bm             C                       G
When I saw Carmen and the devil walking side by side.
G                Bm             C                       G
It's just old Luke, and Luke's waiting on the judgement day.
G                Bm             C                       G
He said, "I will fix your rack, if you'll take Jack my dog."
G                Bm             C                       G
My bag is sinking low, and I do believe it's time


[Verse 3]

G                Bm             C                       G
"Hey, Mister, can you tell me where a man might find a bed?"
G                Bm             C                       G
I said, "Hey, Carmen, come on. Let's go downtown."
G                Bm             C                       G
"Well, Luke, my friend, what about young Anna Lee?
G                Bm             C                       G
I said,"Wait a minute, Chester. You know I'm a peaceful man."
G                Bm             C                       G
To get back to Miss Fanny.  You know she's the only one


[Verse]

G                Bm             C                       G
He just grinned, shook my hand, "No" was all he said.
G                Bm             C                       G
She said, "I got to go, but my friend can stick around."
G                Bm             C                       G
"He said, "Do me a favor, son, won't you stay and keep Anna Lee company."
G                Bm             C                       G
He said, "That's okay, boy.  Won't you feed him when you can?"
G                Bm             C                       G
Who sent me here with her regards for everyone.


[Chorus]

G      G/F#       C
Take a load off, Fanny.
G      G/F#       C
Take a load for free.
G      G/F#       C
Take a load off, Fanny.
G C                                  G   G/F#   Em   D   C
     And  you put the load right on me.

I believe the G/F# in the chorus should be a D/F# 200232

I watched Robbie play this on You Tube abd he plays the intro up higher on the neck which is waaay mor intuitive and easier too!
