Testo The Weight – Travis

Testo della canzone The Weight di Travis
Album: Miscellaneous
I pulled into Nazareth, was feelin’ ‘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

Take a load off Fanny
Take a load for free
Take a load off Fanny
And (and) (and) you can put the load right on me

Picked up my bag, 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

Take a load off Fanny
Take a load for free
Take a load off Fanny
And (and) (and) you can put the load right on me

Go down, Miss Moses, there’s nothin’ 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 favour, son, won’t you stay an’ keep Anna Lee company?

Take a load off Fanny
Take a load for free
Take a load off Fanny
And (and) (and) you can put the load right on me

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, I’m a peaceful man
He said, That’s OK, just feed him when you can

Take a load off Fanny
Take a load for free
Take a load off Fanny
And (and) (and) you can put the load right on me

Catch a cannon ball 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

Take a load off Fanny
Take a load for free
Take a load off Fanny
And (and) (and) you can put the load right on me
