[Verse 1]
 
G               Bm
I pulled into Nazareth, was
   C                    G
feelin' 'bout half past dead
G                Bm          C
I just need some place, where I
            G
can lay my head
G              Bm
Hey Mister can you tell me,
        C                 G
where a man might find a bed
G                  Bm
He just grinned and shook my
         C
hand, and 'no' was all he
   G
said
 
 
G      D        C      G
Take a load off Fanny, take a
D         C
load for free
G      D        C

I picked up my bag, I went
C                     G
lookin' for a place to hide
G             Bm
When I saw old Carmen and the
      C                G
devil walkin' side by side
G          Bm
I said 'Hey Carmen, come
  C               G

G        Bm            C
She said 'I gotta go but my
                  G
friend can stick around'
 
 
G      D        C      G
Take a load off Fanny, take a
D         C
load for free
G      D        C
Take a load off Fanny,

G             Bm           C
Well Luke my friend, what about
            G

G              Bm
He said 'Do me a favor son, wont
     C

[Verse 4]
 
G             Bm
Crazy Chester followed me, and
  C                  G
he caught me in the fog
G               Bm
He said 'I will fix your rack,
  C                  G
if you take Jack my dog'
G                    Bm
I said 'Wait a minute Chester,
         C               G
you know I'm a peaceful man'
G                Bm
He said 'That's okay boy, won't
    C

 G
can'

Catch a Cannonball, now to take
             G

G         Bm               C
My bag is sinking low, and I do
              G

G                  Bm
To get back to miss Fanny you

                  i pulled into nazareth, i 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 f-nny, take a load for free
take a load off f-nny, and you put the load 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 gotta go, but my friend can stick around.”

take a load off f-nny, take a load for free
take a load off f-nny, 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 judgment 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 f-nny, take a load for free
take a load off f-nny, 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 f-nny, take a load for free
take a load off f-nny, 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 f-nny, you know she’s the only one.
who sent me here with her regards for everyone.

take a load off f-nny, take a load for free
take a load off f-nny, and you put the load right on me.
