DUANE ALLMAN lyrics - The Weight

DUANE ALLMAN
"The Weight"

I pulled into Nazareth, I was feeling 'bout a half past dead
I just need some place where I can lay my head
Hey Mister, can you tell me where a girl might find a bed?
He just grinned and shook my hand and "No" was all he said

Take the load off Fanny, take the load for free
Take the load off Fanny and hey, yeah, put the weight on me

I picked up my bag, I went looking for a place to hide
When I saw Carmen and the devil walkin' side by side
I said, "Hey Carmen, c'mon, let's go downtown"
She said,"I gotta go but my friend can stick around"

Take the load off Fanny, take the load for free
Take the load off Fanny and yeah
And yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, put the weight on me

Go down Moses, there's nothin' that you can say
It's just old Luke waiting, waiting on the 'Judgment Day'
Well, Luke, my friend, what about Annalee?
He said, "Do me a favor, stay and keep Annalee some company"

Take the load off Fanny, take the load for free
Take the load off Fanny and and and yeah, put the weight on me

Catch me a cannonball, now take me on down the line
My bag is sinkin' low and I believe that it's about time
To get in touch with Fanny, you know she's the one
Who sent me here, with her regards for everyone

Take the load off Fanny, take the load for free
Take the load off Fanny, take the load for free
Take the load off Fanny, take the load for free
Take the load off Fanny, take the load for free
