Lyrics

I pulled into Nazareth I was feeling 'bout 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 No, was all he said Take a load off Fanny Take a load for free Take a load off Fanny And you put the load 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, I gotta go But my friend can stick around Take a load off Fanny Take a load for free Take a load off Fanny And, and, yeah, yeah Go down Moses There's nothing you can say It's just like old Luke waiting Waiting on the judgement day Well, Luke, my friend What about Anna Lee He said, do me a favor Stay and keep Anna Lee Some company Take a load off Fanny Take a load for free Take a load off Fanny And, yeah, put the weight on me Catch me a cannonball Now take me on down the line My bag is sinking low And I believe it's about time Get in touch with Fanny You know she's the one Who sent me here with Her regards for everyone, yeah Take a load off Fanny Take a load for free Take a load off Fanny Take a load for free.....
