[A]    [E/G#]    [F#m7]    [E]    [D]    

[A]I pulled in to N[C#m]azareth, I was f[D]eeling about half past d[A]ead.
[A]I just need some p[C#m]lace where [D]I can lay my h[A]ead.
[A]"Hey, Mister, can you t[C#m]ell me where a m[D]an might find a b[A]ed?"
[A]He just grinned, sh[C#m]ook my hand, "[D]No" was all he s[A]aid.

[A]Take a [E/G#]load off, F[D]anny.
[A]Take a [E/G#]load for fr[D]ee.  
[A]Take a [E/G#]load off, F[D]anny.
[D]And... you put the load right on m[A]e.  
[A]    [E/G#]    [F#m7]    [E]    [D]    
[A]I picked up my [C#m]bag. I went [D]looking for a place to [A]hide.
[A]When I saw [C#m]Carmen and the [D]devil walking side by [A]side.
[A]I said, "Hey, [C#m]Carmen, come [D]on. Let's go down[A]town."
[A]She said, "[C#m]I got to go, but my f[D]riend can stick a[A]round."

[A]Take a [E/G#]load off, F[D]anny.
[A]Take a [E/G#]load for fr[D]ee.  
[A]Take a [E/G#]load off, F[D]anny.
[D]And... you put the load right on m[A]e.  
[A]    [E/G#]    [F#m7]    [E]    [D]    
[A]Go down, Miss [C#m]Moses, there's [D]nothing you can [A]say.
[A]It's just old [C#m]Luke, and Luke's [D]waiting on the judgement [A]day.
[A]"Well, Luke, my [C#m]friend, what [D]about young Anna [A]Lee?"
[A]He said, "[C#m]Do me a favor, son, won't you [D]stay and keep Anna Lee [A]company."

[A]Take a [E/G#]load off, F[D]anny.
[A]Take a [E/G#]load for fr[D]ee.  
[A]Take a [E/G#]load off, F[D]anny.
[D]And... you put the load right on m[A]e.  
[A]    [E/G#]    [F#m7]    [E]    [D]    
[A]Crazy Chester [C#m]followed me and he [D]caught me in the [A]fog.
[A]He said, "I will [C#m]fix your rack, if you'll [D]take Jack my [A]dog."
[A]I said, "Wait a minute, [C#m]Chester. You [D]know I'm a peaceful [A]man."
[A]He said, "That's [C#m]okay, boy. Won't you [D]feed him when you [A]can?"

[A]Take a [E/G#]load off, F[D]anny.
[A]Take a [E/G#]load for fr[D]ee.  
[A]Take a [E/G#]load off, F[D]anny.
[D]And... you put the load right on m[A]e.  
[A]    [E/G#]    [F#m7]    [E]    [D]    
[A]Get your [C#m]Canonball now, to [D]take me down the l[A]ine.
[A]My bag is [C#m]sinking low, and I [D]do believe it's [A]time
[A]To get back to Miss [C#m]Fanny. You know [D]she's the only [A]one  
[A]Who sent me [C#m]here with her re[D]gards for every[A]one.

[A]Take a [E/G#]load off, F[D]anny.
[A]Take a [E/G#]load for fr[D]ee.  
[A]Take a [E/G#]load off, F[D]anny.
[D]And... you put the load right on m[A]e.

I pulled in to Nazareth, I was feeling about half past dead.
I just need some place where I can lay my head.
"Hey, Mister, can you tell me where a man might find a bed?"
He just grinned, 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 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, "I got to go, but my friend can stick around."

Take a load off, Fanny.
Take a load for free.
Take a load off, Fanny.
And... you put the load right on me.

Go down, Miss Moses, there's nothing you can say.
It's just old Luke, and Luke's 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."

Take a load off, Fanny.
Take a load for free.
Take a load off, Fanny.
And... you put the load right on me.

Crazy Chester followed me and he caught me in the fog.
He said, "I will fix your rack, if you'll take Jack my dog."
I said, "Wait a minute, Chester. You know I'm a peaceful man."
He said, "That's okay, boy. Won't you feed him when you can?"

Take a load off, Fanny.
Take a load for free.
Take a load off, Fanny.
And... you put the load right on me.

Get your Canonball now, to take me down the line.
My bag is sinking low, and I do believe it's time
To get back to Miss Fanny. You know she's the only one
Who sent me here with her regards for everyone.

Take a load off, Fanny.
Take a load for free.
Take a load off, Fanny.
And... you put the load right on me.
