I pulled into Nazareth, was feelin' 'bout 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        C      G      D         C
Take a load off Fanny, take a load for free

Take a load off Fanny,    and   and   and

G             Bm                    C                G
When I saw old Carmen and the devil walkin' side by side
G          Bm              C               G
I said "Hey Carmen, come on let's go down town"

G             Bm               C                         G
It's just old 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 & keep Anna Lee company"

Crazy Chester followed me, and he caught me in the fog
G               Bm               C                  G
He said "I will fix your rack, if you 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"

My bag is 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

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!
