    Lyrics

    I pulled into Nazareth, was feelin' 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 and shook my hand, and "no", was all he said

    Take a load off Annie, take a load for free
    Take a load off Annie, and, and, and you put the load right on me

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

    Take a load off Annie, take a load for free
    Take a load off Annie, and, and, and you put the load right on me

    Go down, Miss Moses, there's nothin' you can say
    It's just ol' Luke, and Luke's waitin' on the Judgement Day
    "Well Luke, my friend, what about young Anna Lee?"
    He said, "do me a favor son, won't ya stay and keep Anna Lee company?"

    Take a load off Annie, take a load for free
    Take a load off Annie, and, and, 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 Annie, take a load for free
    Take a load off Annie, and, and, and you put the load right on me

    Catch a cannonball now, to take me down the line
    My bag is sinkin' low and I do believe it's time
    To get back to Miss Annie, you know she's the only one
    Who sent me here with her regards for everyone

    Take a load off Annie, take a load for free
    Take a load off Annie, and you put the load
    Put the load, put the load, put the load right on me
