    Lyrics

    Pulled into Nazareth, was feeling 'bout half past dead
    Just need a place where I can lay my head
    Hey mister can you tell me where a girl 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
    Right on me

    I picked up my bag, I went lookin' for a place to hide
    When I saw carmen and the devil walkin' side by side
    I said, "Hey, carmen, come on, let's go downtown"
    She said, "I gotto go but my friend can stick around"

    Take a load off Fanny
    Take a load for free
    Take a load off Fanny
    And put the load right on me
    No 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, won't you feed him when you can, yeah?"

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

    Go down Miss Moses, there's nothin' you can say
    It's just ol' Luke and Luke's waitin' for the judgement day
    Well Luke my friend, "What about young Anna Lee?"
    He said, "Do me a favor, won't you stay an' 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

    Take a load off Fanny
    Take a load for free
    Take a load off Fanny
    And you put the load right on me
    Put the load right on me
    Yeah, put the load right on me
    Com'n and put the load right on me

    Catch the cannon ball now, now take me down the line
    My bag is sinkin' 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
    Who sent me here with her regards for everyone
