I pulled into Nazareth, I was feelin' about half past dead.
G                   Bm         C              G
I just need some place 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 and shook my hand, and "No", was all he said.

[Chorus]
G      D/F#     C
Take a load off Fannie, 
G      D/F#     C
Take a load for free
G      D/F#     C
Take a load off Fannie,
                                                                        
 And you can put the load right on me.

Looks good to me. I'm no expert, but if I'm correct, these guys played it a tone down from The Band's version (playing in G instead of in A). Which means that, quick tip, if you want to play with the original, The Band recording (from Music from Big Pink), you can use the same chords, but play them with a capo on the 2nd fret.
