allman brothers band – the weight lyrics


the weight

i pulled into nazareth, was feeling ’bout half past dead
i just need some place where i can lay my head
he just grinned and shook my hand, “no” was all he said.
hey, mister, can you tell me, where a man might find a bed

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 bags, i went looking for a place to hide
then i saw old carmen and the devil walking side by side

i said, “hey carmen, c’mon, let’s go downtown”
she said, “i gotta go, but my friend can stick around”


go down, miss moses, ain’t nothin you can say
it’s just old luke, and luke’s waiting on judgement day
well, luke, my friend, what about young annalee

he said, “do me a favor, so, won’t you stay and keep annalee comapany”


crazy chester followed me, and he caught me in the fog
said, “i will fix your rag, if you’ll take jack, my dog”
he said, “that’s ok, boy, won’t you feed him when you can”
i said, “wait a minute chester-you know, i’m a peaceful man”


get you cannonball, now to take me down the line
my bag is sinking 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
