I pulled into Nazareth, I was feeling about half past dead
I just need to find a place where I can lay my head
"Hey, mister, can you tell me where a man might find a bed?"
He just grinned and then he shook my hand, and "No!", was all he said
Take a load off Fannie, take a load for free
Take a load off Fannie, And (and) (and)
You put the load right on me (you put the load right on me)
I picked up my bag, I went looking for a place to hide
When I saw Carmen and the Devil walking side by side
I said, "Hey, Carmen, come on, let's go downtown."
She said, "Baby, I've got to go, but my friend the devil can stick around."
Go down, Miss Moses, there's nothing that you can say
It's just old Luke, and Luke is waiting on the Judgement Day
"Well, Luke, my friend, what about young Anna Lee?"
He said, "Do me a favor, son, won't you stay and keep Anna Lee company?"
