I pulled into Nazareth, was feelin' 'bout 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 Fanny
Take a load for free
Take a load off Fanny
And you can put the load right on me
(And)
(And)

Picked up my bag, 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 gotta go, but m'friend can stick around"

Take a load off Fanny
Take a load for free
Take a load off Fanny
And you can put the load right on me
(And)
(And)

Go down, Miss Moses, there's nothin' you can say
It's just old Luke, and Luke's waitin' on the Judgment Day
"Well Luke, my friend, what about young Anna Lee?"
He said, "Do me a favor, son
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 can put the load right on me
(And)
(And)

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, I'm a peaceful man"
He said, "That's okay, just feed him when you can"

Take a load off Fanny
Take a load for free
Take a load off Fanny
And you can put the load right on me
(And)
(And)

Catch a cannon ball 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 can put the load right on me
(And)
(And)
