Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
I saw Jensen Ackles performing a version of this song and though I would write it out for anyone that wanted 
to play it. This is the video I used to work out the strumming - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ANzA4Z4E_O4
Good Luck :)

A              C#m            D                       A
 I pulled into Nazareth I was feelin 'bout half past dead

 I just need a place where I could lay my head 
A                   C#m             D                A
 Hey mister can you tell me where a man might find a bed 
A                 C#m               D             A
 He just went and shook my hand and no was all he said 


[Chorus]
A       E        D     A       E        D
 Take a load off Fanny  Take a load for free 
A       E        D     D 
 Take a load off Fanny and,  
N.C                       A E F#m E D D
 Put the load right on me 


[Verse]
A            C#m              D                      A 
 I picked up my bags and went lookin' for a place to hide 
A               C#m            D                     A
 When I saw old Carmen and the Devil walkin' side by side 
A            C#m          D                A
 I said "Hey Carmel, come on let's go down town" 
A                C#m              D                      A
 She said, "I've got to go but my friend you can stick around" 


[Chorus]
A       E        D     A       E       D
 Take a load off Fanny  Take a load for free 
A       E        D     D 
 Take a load off Fanny and,  
N.C                       A E F#m E D D
 Put the load right on me  


[Verse]
A             C#m         D               A
 Go down Miss Moses ain't nothin' you can say 
A              C#m           D                        A
 It's just old Luke, Luke is waitin' on the Judgement Day 
A            C#m           D              A
 Hey Luke my friend what about young Anna Lee' 
A               C#m                   D                     A
 Said, "Do me a favour boy, won't you stay and keep Anna Lee company'" 


[Chorus]
A       E        D     A       E       D
 Take a load off Fanny  Take a load for free 
A       E        D     D 
 Take a load off Fanny and,  
N.C                       A E F#m E D D
 Put the load right on me 


[Verse]
A              C#m                D                A 
 Crazy Chester followed me and he caught me in the fall 
A            C#m                  D               A
 He said, "I see you right if you take on Jack my dog" 
A                   C#m            D                     A
 I said, "No wait a minute Chester though I'm a peaceful man" 
A                 C#m    D                A
 He said "That's OK just feed him when ya can" 


[Chorus}
A       E        D     A       E       D
 Take a load off Fanny  Take a load for free 
A       E        D     D 
 Take a load off Fanny And,  
N.C                       A E F#m E D D 
 Put the load right on me 

A E F#m E D A


[Verse]
A          C#m               D                A 
 I catch a cannonball now to take me down the line 
A            C#m           D               A
 My bags are sinkin' low I do believe it's time 
A                    C#m            D                A
 To get back to Miss Fanny you know she's the only one 
A            C#m              D              A
 Who sent me here' with her regards for everyone 


[Chorus}
A       E        D     A       E       D
 Take a load off Fanny  Take a load for free 
A       E        D     D 
 Take a load off Fanny And,  
N.C                       A E F#m E D D
 Put the load right on me
A            A E F#m E D A
 Right on me

I imagine it's a C#m chord instead of C#?
