The Staple Singers The Weight Lyrics

The Weight Songtext

I pulled in to 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 girl might find a bed
He just grinned and shook my hand no was all he said
Take the load off Fanny, take the load for free
Take the load off Fanny 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 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't stick around
Take the load off Fanny, take the load for free
Take the load off Fanny and, and, and you put the load right on me

Go down Moses there's nothing you can say
It's just old Luke and Luke's waiting on the judgement day
Well Luke my friend what about young Anna Lee
He said do me a favour son, won't you stay and keep Anna Lee company
Take the load off Fanny, take the load for free
Take the load off Fanny and, and, and you put the load right on me

Catch me a cannonball now take me on down the line
My bag is sinking low and I do believe it's time
Get in touch with Fanny you know she's the only one
Who sent me here with her regards for everyone
Take the load off Fanny, take the load for free
Take the load off Fanny and, and, and you put the load right on me
