Song Meaning
Verse 1
I pulled in to Nazareth was feelin' 'bout a half past dead
I just need some place where I can lay my head
Hey mister, can you tell me where a girl might find a bed
He just grinned and shook my hand, no was all he said
Verse 2
Take a load off Fanny, take the load for free
Take a load off Fanny and, and, and you put the load right on me
Verse 3
I picked up my bag I went lookin' for a place to hide
When I saw Carmen and the Devil walking side by side
I said, hey Carmen come on let's go downtown
She said I gotta go but my friend can stick around
Verse 4
Take a load off Fanny, take the load for free
Take a load off Fanny and, and, and you put the load right on me
Verse 5
Go down Moses there's nothing you can say
It's just old Luke waiting, waiting on the judgement day
Well Luke my friend what about Anna Lee
He said do me a favor stay and keep Anna Lee from company
Verse 6
Take a load off Fanny, take a load for free
Take a load off Fanny and, and, and you put the weight on me
Verse 7
Catch me a cannonball now take me on down the line
My bag is sinking low and I believe that it's about time
Get in touch with Fanny you know that she's the one
Who sent me here with her regards for everyone
Verse 8
Take a load off Fanny, take a load for free
Take a load off Fanny, take a load for free
Take a load off Fanny
