[Verse 1]

   G              Bm             C                      G
I pulled in to Nazareth, I was feeling about half past dead.
   G            Bm          C              G
I just need someplace where I can lay my head
   G                  Bm              C                G  
"Hey, mister, can you tell me where a man might find a bed?"
 G                Bm             C                G
He just grinned, shook my hand, "No" was all he said.
  
[Chorus]

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


[Verse 2]

G                Bm             C                    G
I picked up my bag, and went looking for a place to hide
G            Bm             C                    G
When I saw Carmen and the devil walking side by side.
G               Bm         C                G
I said, "Hey, Carmen, come on. Let's go downtown."
G          Bm                   C                 G
She said, "I got to go, but my friend can stick around."

[Chorus]

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

[Verse 3]

G               Bm             C              G
Go down, Miss Moses, there's nothin' you can say
G                Bm             C                       G
It's just ol' Luke, and Luke's waitin' on the Judgement Day.
G                Bm             C                       G
"Well, Luke, my friend, what about young Anna Lee?
G                   Bm                    C                       G
"He said, "Do me a favor, son, won't you stay and keep Anna Lee company."

[Chorus]

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

[Verse]

G                Bm                C                G
Crazy Chester followed me, and he caught me in the fog
G                Bm             C                       G
He said, "I will fix your rack, if you'll take Jack my dog."
G                Bm             C                       G
I said,"Wait a minute, Chester. You know I'm a peaceful man."
G                Bm             C                       G
He said, "That's okay, boy.  Won't you feed him when you can?"

[Chorus]

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


[Verse]

G            Bm              C                G  
Catch a cannonball, now, to take me down the line.
G              Bm              C                G
My bags are sinking low, and I do believe it's time
G                Bm                   C             G
To get back to Miss Fanny.  You know she's the only one
G            Bm             C            G
Who sent me here with her regards for everyone.

[Chorus]

G       D         C
Take a load off, Fanny.
G       D        C
Take a load for free.
G       D       C
Take a load off, Fanny.
C (Hold)                         G   G/F#   Em   D   C 2x
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!
