[Verse]
C              Em              F                       C
I pulled in to Nazareth, I was feeling about half past dead.
C                Em          F            C
I just need some place where I can lay my head.
C                    Em              F                C
Hey, Mister, can you tell me where a man might find a bed?
        C        Em              F              C
He just grinned, shook my hand, "No" was all he said.

[Chorus]
C      G         F
Take a load off, Fanny.
C      G        F
Take a load for free.
C      G         F
Take a load off, Fanny.
F                                                C
And...  you put the load (put the load) right on me.

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

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

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

[Chorus]
C         Em                F                C
 Get your Canonball now, to take me down the line.
C           Em                 F               C
  My bag is sinking low, and I do believe it's time
C                    Em               F              C
 To get back to Miss Fanny.  You know she's the only one
C            Em              F              C
 Who sent me here with her regards for everyone.

[Chorus]
