I pulled into Nazareth,
was feelin' 'bout half past dead
I just need someplace 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 f****,
take a load for free
Take a load off f****,
and... and... and...
You put the load, put the load right on me
I picked up my bags,
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 'No, I've got to go,
but my friend can stick around'

Go down Miss Moses, there's nothin' that you can say It's just old 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, won't you stay and keep Anna Lee company'


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


Get your cannonball now to take me down the et your line My bag is sinking 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
