CAPO 1


A              C#m             D                       A
I pulled in to Nazareth, I was feeling about half past dead.
A                C#m   D                  A
I just need some place where I can lay my head.
A                     C#m              D                 A
"Hey, Mister, can you tell me where a girl might find a bed?"
A                    C#m                 D             A
He just grinned, and shook my hand, and no was all he said.

Chorus
A                D
Take a load off, Fanny.
A               D
Take a load for free.
A                D
Take a load off, Fanny.
D                                                  A
And (and..and yeahhh yeahh)  you put the weight on me.


A              C#m           D                      A
I picked up my bag,  I went looking for a place to hide.
A                        Dbm   D               A
But I saw Carmen and the devil walking side by side.
A            C#m      D                 A
I said, Hey, Carmen, come on. Let's go downtown.
A        C#m                  D                 A
She said, I got to go, but my friend can stick around.

Chorus

A                D
Take a load off, Fanny.
A               D
Take a load for free.
A                D
Take a load off, Fanny.
D                                            A
And (and..and yeah yeah yeah)  the weight on me

VERSE:

A        C#m             D               A
Go down, Moses, there's nothing you can say.
A              C#m               D                        A
It's just like old Luke waitin', waitin' on the judgement day.
A              C#m              D    A
Old Luke, my friend, what about Anna Lee?
A              C#m               D                    A
He said, Do me a favor, stay and keep Anna Lee some company.

Chorus
A                D
Take a load off, Fanny.
A               D
Take a load for free.
A                D
Take a load off, Fanny.
C                    NC                    A 
And (and..and yeahh) put the weight on me


VERSE:

Bb         Dm         Eb              Bb
Catch me a cannonball  now to take me down the line.
Bb        Dm                 Eb                      Bb
My bag is sinking low, and I believe that it's about time
Bb        Dm               Eb                  Bb
To get in touch with Fanny, You know she's the one
Bb          Dm              Eb            Bb
Who sent me here with her regards for everyone.


CHORUS:

Bb               Eb
Take a load off, Fanny.
Bb              Eb
Take a load for free.
Bb               Eb
Take a load off, Fanny.
Bb              Eb
Take a load for free.
Bb               Eb
Take a load off, Fanny.
Bb              Eb
Take a load for free.
