Capo 3rd fret for "Last Waltz" version
G		Bm		C	  (Am7)	     G
I pulled into Nazareth, just feelin' 'bout half past dead
Just lookin' to find a place where I could lay my head
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
G	    D        C	   G	  D	   C
So take a load off Fanny, take a load for free
G	D	  C     C  (stop)                           G
Take a load off Fanny, and ...... You put the load right on me
..G  Bm  Em  D  C-C-C
I picked up my bags and went lookin' for a place to hide
When I spied old Carmen and the devil, walkin' side by side
I said "Hey, Carmen, come on won't you go down town"
And she said "I gotta go, but my friend can stick around"
Go down Moses, there's nothin' that you can say
It's just old Luke, and Luke is waitin' on the Judgement Day
Hey Luke, my friend, what about young Annalie?
He said "Do me a favour, son, wont you stay & keep Annalie company"
Crazy Chester followed me, and he caught me in the fog
He said "I will fix your rack, if you take old Jack, my dog"
I said "Wait a minute Chester, you know I'm a peaceful man"
He said "That's okay boy, you just feed him when you can"
Catch a Cannonball, to take me down the line
Cos 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
She sent me here with her regards for everyone
