The Weight

length: 4:27
composer: Robbie Robertson
lyricist: Robbie Robertson
I pulled into Nazareth, was feelin' about 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 f____, take a load for free;
Take a load off f____, And (and) (and) you can 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 m'friend can stick around."

CHORUS

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?"

CHORUS

Crazy Chester followed me, and he caught me in the fog.
He said, "I will fix your rack, if you'll take Jack, my dog."
I said, "Wait a minute, Chester, you know I'm a peaceful man."
He said, "That's okay, boy, won't you feed him when you can."

CHORUS

Catch a cannon ball now, t'take me down the line
My bag is sinkin' low and I do believe it's time.
To get back to Miss f____, you know she's the only one.
Who sent me here with her regards for everyone.

CHORUS

Ride the Night Away

length: 4:02
I I got somethin' baby on my mind
It's tearin' me up inside
And I got to let loose tonight baby now

I know you, can see what I'm goin through
Everybody telling me what to do,
Well I need somebody to talk to

Well I'm different I can feel the changes
But I can't turn back the pages
And our hearts are all we have to save us
Come on save me tonight

We're gonna ride the night away
Yeah babe we're gonna ride the night away
Well there ain't no time left to borrow
I guess I'll have to think about it tomorrow
We're gonna ride, ride the night away, yeah baby.

I, got a gun pointed at my head
I put it there by myself
I can't ask ya but I need some help, baby now

Let me tell ya hunny
I got a fire burnin' in my soul
Well I'm dangerous and out of control
And tonight I got to let it go.

I can't look back baby I've tried
It's too late for me to compromise
Well I need somebody by my side
Come on save me tonight.

We're gonna ride the night away
Yeah babe we're gonna ride the night away
Well there aint no time left to borrow
I guess I'll have to think about it tomorrow
We're gonna ride, ride the night away.

I can't look back baby I tried
It's too late for me to compromise
Well I need somebody by my side
Come on save me tonight

We're gonna ride the night away
Yeah babe we're gonna ride the night away
Well there ain't no time left to borrow
I guess I'll have to think about it tomorrow
We're gonna ride, ride the night away.

Guilty

length: 2:50
composer: Randy Newman
lyricist: Randy Newman
Yes, baby, I been drinkin'
And I shouldn't come by I know
But I found myself in trouble
And I had nowhere else to go

Got some whiskey from the barman
Got some cocaine from a friend
I just had to keep on movin'
'Til I was back in your arms again

Guilty, baby I'm guilty
And I'll be guilty the rest of my life
How come I never do what I'm supposed to do
How come nothin' that I try to do ever turns out right?

You know, you know how it is with me baby
You know, I just can't stand myself
And it takes a whole lot of medicine
For me to pretend that I'm somebody else

You Can't Make Love Without a Soul

length: 2:38
Before I lose my way I'm going home
The longer I stay with you
The more I feel alone
Before I leave I think that there is
Something you should know
You can't make love without a soul

No love, no soul

If you wanna make love, love, love
You've got to have soul

Make love and you might make a friend for life
But you can have a million bucks
And still not get it right
If life's an education
Then I think you should be told
You can't make love without a soul

You can't make love, if you don't believe in it
Can't make love, if you keep leaving it
Up to someone else to take control for you

I said you've got to make love, love, love
You've got to have soul

Love will make you beautiful
Love will make you whole
Use this information and
then watch your life unfold
You can't make love
You can't make love
You can't make love without a soul

Hell of a Time

length: 2:50

Brother of Mine

length: 4:19

Fade to Black

length: 3:37
I'll be with you tonight
Far away from the noise of the crowd
I'm gonna cash in my dreams
I got no use for them now
Come on turn on the light
There is too much to lose
So give me something to believe in
When day fades to black
I won't look back, of that I'm certain
When day fades to black
I won't look back at all

I wanna get of this one way street
Don't want to be among the faceless
Here I am one of the living dead
Murdered by the streets that surround me

Can't knock me down in this fight
I don't know how to lose
These city walls that try to confine me
Won't bring me down on my knees
This ain't no time to be lonely
Cause there ain't nothing that's left
here to hold me
I can't be bought with a handful of dreams
And the promises I can't believe in

I wanna get of this one way street
Don't want to be among the faceless
Here I am one of the living dead
Murdered by the streets that surround me

Flame Trees

length: 4:57
Kids out driving Saturday afternoon just pass my by
I'm just savoring familiar sights
We shared some history, this town and I
And I can't stop that long forgotten feeling of her
Its time to book a room to stay the night

Number one is to find some friends to say
You're doing well
After all this time you boys just look the same
Number two is the happy hour
At one of two hotels
Settle in to play, do you remember so and so
Number three is never say here name

Oh the flame trees will blind the weary driver
And there's nothing else to set fire to this town
There's no change, there's no pace
Everything within it's place
Just makes it harder to believe
That she won't be around

Who need that sentimental bullshit anyway
Takes more than just a memory to make me cry
And I'm happy just to sit here
Round a table with old friends
And see which one of us can tell the biggest lies
And there's a girl she's falling in love
Near where the pianola stands
With her young local factory out of worker
Just holding hands
And I'm wondering if he'll go or if he'll stay
Do you remember
Nothing stopped us on the field
In our day

Oh the flame trees will blind the weary driver
And there's nothing else to set fire to this town
There's no change, there's no pace
Everything within it's place
Just makes it harder to believe
That she won't be around

Still Got a Long Way to Go

length: 4:06

Still on Your Side

length: 3:57
Emotions ran high,
And the words were strong
Heard the screen door slam,
And you were gone
You can't win a fight
You don't understand
And I wake up alone
Reachin' for your hand

Like a cold wind in December
When we don't see eye to eye
I want you to remember
I'm still on your side
When you need me girl
Still on your side

As sure as a river
Runs to the sea
There'll have to be times,
We both disagree

Sometimes I feel like shoutin'
It's like a freight train in my heart
Make you see there'll be no doubtin'
I'm still on your side
When you need me girl
Still on your side

And I look up
To see you standin' there
But you just look right thru me
Somebody tell me I'm dreamin'
Pretend you don't care
As you turn round and walk out that door

Sometimes I feel like shoutin'
It's like a freight train in my heart
Make you see there'll be no doubtin'
I'm still on your side
Like a cold wind in December
When we don't see eye to eye
I want you to remember
I'm still on your side
Na-na-na-na-na-na
I'm still on your side

Stone Cold

length: 3:48
When I get home I found you sleeping
I said the words you know are true
And I'm stoned, stone cold in love with you

You don't have to turn the light on
Ain't had more than just a few
And I'm stoned, I'm stone cold in love with you
You don't have to wonder why now
Look at all the things you've been to me
I'll build my whole life on the sweet foundation
You've given, baby you know what I mean

I left my friends back in the poolroom
They'll still be drowning out the blues
I'm stoned, I'm stone cold in love with you

You don't have to wonder why
Look at all the things you've been
My heart lies on the sweet foundation
You'v given, baby you know what I mean

I see your face below the window
I see the moonlight coming through
And I'm stoned, I'm stone cold in love with you
Yes I'm stoned, I'm stone cold in love with you

Love me tender, love me sweet
Never let me go
You have made my life complete
And I love you so
