A             C#m           D                       A
I pulled into Nazareth, was feelin' about half past dead;
                 C#m         D            A
I just need some place where I can lay my head.
                      C#m             D                A
"Hey, mister, can you tell me where a man might find a bed?"
                    C#m                 D                A
He just grinned and shook my hand, and "No!", was all he said.

A      E        D     A       E        D
Take a load off Fanny, take a load for free;

           C#m            D                     A
When I saw Carmen and the Devil walkin' side by side.
              C#m          D                A
I said, "Hey, Carmen, come on, let's go downtown."

It's just ol' Luke, and Luke's waitin' on the Judgement Day.
                C#m           D               A
"Well, Luke, my friend, what about young Anna Lee?"
          C#m                        D                      A
He said, "Do me a favor, son, woncha stay an' keep Anna Lee company?"

A      E        D     A       E        D
Take a load off Fanny, take a load for free;

I said, "Wait a minute, Chester, you know I'm a peaceful man."
          C#m                         D                 A
He said, "That's okay, boy, won't you feed him when you can."

To get back to Miss Fanny, you know she's the only one.
            C#m              D             A
Who sent me here with her regards for everyone.

Instead of the E in the chorus try an Amaj9. And the progression after "put a load right on me is A - Amaj9 - F#m -E -D (done twice at the end.)

Thank you. Just played along using the E, and it sounds great.
