    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

      I love this song. I worked at a summer camp and a bunch of the male senior staff members sang this song with just their guitars, and a hermonica. It was truly the best radtion ever done. The chorus of this song is talking about someone that is my dearest friend for all time. She is always there wanting to help me. She always has an open ear for whatever is on my mind.

      This song is incredible..it's so chill...but very very moving. I don't quite know what it is about the song, but it almost has a "holy" or soulful meaning to it, the way that it is sung that is. Some kids from my school sung it at a concert and it was juts done so well! it makes you want to sing along with it. Oh hooray for the 1960's! Whoppah!
