Grateful Dead — Weight, The lyrics [Music World]

I rode in to Nazareth, was feeling about half past dead
I just need someplace where I could lay my head
I said, «Hey mister, can you tell me where a man might find a bed?»
He just grinned and shook my hand and «No» is all he said
Take a load off Fanny
Take a load for free
Take a load off Fanny
And (and, and,) you put the load (push the load) right on me
I packed up my bags, I went looking for place to hide
Then I saw 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.»
Take a load off Fanny
Take a load for free
Take a load off Fanny
And (and, and,) you put the load (push the load) right on me
Go down Miss Moses, there’s ain’t 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 favor, son, won’t you stay and keep Anna Lee company.»
Take a load off Fanny
Take a load for free
Take a load off Fanny
And (and, and,) you put the load (push the load) right on me
Crazy Chester followed me and he caught me in the fog
He said, «I’ll fix you right, if you take Jack, my dog.»
I said, «Hey wait a minute, Chester. You know I’m a peaceful man.»
He said, «That’s OK, boy, won’t you feed him when you can.»
Take a load off Fanny
Take a load for free
Take a load off Fanny
And (and, and,) you put the load (push the load) right on me
Gonna catch the Cannonball, now, to take me down the line
My back is sinking low and I do believe it’s time
To get back to Miss Fanny, you know she’s the only one
Who sent me here with her regards for everyone
Take a load off Fanny
Take a load for free
Take a load off Fanny
And (and, and,) you put the load (push the load) right on me

Played frequently by the Grateful Dead in the early 90s, nearly always as an encore with different band members taking each verse (note 1).
Revived by The Dead in 2004, with Bob Weir and Warren Haynes sharing vocals.

I pulled in to Nazareth, was feeling ’bout 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

Chorus
Take a load off Fanny
Take a load for free
Take a load off Fanny
And … you put the load right on me

I picked up my bag, I went looking 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 down town
She said I got to go, but my friend can stick around (note 2)

[chorus]

Go down Miss Moses, there’s nothing you can say
It’s just old Luke, and Luke’s waiting for the judgement day
Well Luke my friend what about young Anna Lee (note 3)
He said do me a favor, son, won’t you stay and keep Anna Lee company

[chorus]

Crazy Chester followed me and he caught me in the fog
He said I will fix your rack if you take Jack my dog
I said wait a minute Chester, you know I’m a peaceful man
He said that’s OK boy, won’t you feed him when you can

[chorus]

Catch a 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 Fanny, you know she’s the only one
Who sent me here with her regards for everyone

[chorus]

I pulled into nazareth, was feeling bout 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, no was all he said.
Take a load off fanny, take a load for free
Take a load off fanny, 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

Chorus

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

Chorus

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

Chorus

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 fanny, you know she’s the only one
Who sent me here, with her regards for everyone

Chorus

I pulled into Nazareth, was feeling about half past dead
