[Originally by The Band]

I pulled in to Nazareth I was feeling about half past dead
I just need a 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.

Take a load off Annie, take a load for free;
Take a load off Annie, And (and) (and)
You can put the load right on me. (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 walkin' side by side.
I said, "Hey, Carmen, come on, let's go downtown."
She said, "I gotta go, but my friend the devil can stick around."

Take a load off Annie, take a load for free
Take a load off Annie, And (and) (and)
You can put the load right on me. (put the load right on me)

Go down, Miss Moses, there's nothin' you can say
It's just ol' Luke, and Luke's waitin' on the Judgement Day.
"Well, Luke, my friend, what about young Anna Lee?"
He said, "Do me a favor, son, woncha stay an' keep Anna Lee company?"

Take a load off Annie, take a load for free
Take a load off Annie, And (and) (and)
You can put the load right on me. (put the load right on me)

Take a load off Annie, take a load for free
Take a load off Annie, And (and) (and)
You can put the load right on me. (put the load right on me)
