I pulled into Nazareth..was feelin' 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 man might find a bed?
A                   C#m             D               A
He just grinned and shook my hand, 'no,' was all he said.

CHORUS:
A      E         D      A      E        D
Take a load off, Fanny..take a load for free.

right on me.

I picked up my bag, I went lookin' for a place to hide..
A          C#m                   D               A
when I saw Carmen and the Devil, walkin' 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 gotta go, but my friend can stick around.

right on me.

Go down, Miss Moses, there's nothin' you can say.
A             C#m              D                       A
It's just ol' Luke, and Luke's waitin' on the Judgment Day.
A              C#m           D               A
Well, Luke, my friend, what about young Anna Lee?
A                C#m                   D     
He said, Do me a favour, son, won'tcha stay and keep Anna Lee 
A
company?

A             C#m                D                A
Crazy Chester followed me and he caught me in the fog.
A               C#m              D                    A
He said, I will fix your rack if you'll take Jack, my dog.
A                      C#m               D              A
I said, Wait a minute, Chester, you know I'm a peaceful man.
A               C#m                  D                 A
He said, That's okay, boy, won't you feed him when you can?
(Yeah!)

CHORUS:
A      E         D      A      E        D
Take a load off, Fanny..take a load for free.

My bag is sinkin' low and 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.
