The Band - The Weight Lyrics and Chords
A0 C#m1 D2 A3 0I pulled in to Nazareth, I was feeling about half past dead.
A4 C#m5 D6 A7 1I just need some place where I can lay my head.
A8 C#m9 D10 A11 2"Hey, Mister, can you tell me where a man might find a bed?"
A12 C#m13 D14 A15 3He just grinned, shook my hand, "No" was all he said.
A16 A/G#17 D18 5Take a load off, Fanny.
A19 A/G#20 D21 6Take a load for free.
A22 A/G#23 D24 7Take a load off, Fanny.
D25 A26 8And... you put the load right on me.
10I picked up my bag. I went looking for a place to hide.
11When I saw Carmen and the devil walking side by side.
12I said, "Hey, Carmen, come on. Let's go downtown."
13She said, "I got to go, but my friend can stick around."
15Go down, Miss Moses, there's nothing you can say.
16It's just old Luke, and Luke's waiting on the judgement day.
17"Well, Luke, my friend, what about young Anna Lee?"
18He said, "Do me a favor, son, won't you stay and keep Anna Lee company."
20Crazy Chester followed me and he caught me in the fog.
21He said, "I will fix your rack, if you'll take Jack my dog."
22I said, "Wait a minute, Chester. You know I'm a peaceful man."
23He said, "That's okay, boy. Won't you feed him when you can?"
25Get your Canonball now, to take me down the line.
26My bag is sinking low, and I do believe it's time
27To get back to Miss Fanny. You know she's the only one
28Who sent me here with her regards for everyone. |
