The Weight – Shannon Curfman

I 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 girl 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 (and) (and) put the weight 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”;

Take a load off Fanny

Take a load for free

Take a load off Fanny

And (and) (and) put the weight on me

Go down, Moses

There ain’t nothin’ for you to say

It’s just ol’ Luke

And Luke’s waitin’ on the Judgment Day

“;Well, Luke, my friend

What about young Anna Lee?”;

He said, “;Do me a favor

Stay an’ keep Anna Lee company.”;

Take a load off Fanny

Take a load for free

Take a load off Fanny

And (and) (and) put the weight on me

Fetch me a cannon ball

Now take me on down the line

May bag is sinkin’ low

And I believe it’s about time

To get in touch with me

You know she’s the one

He said, “;Honey, regards for everyone.”;

Take a load off Fanny

Take a load for free

Take a load off Fanny

And (and) (and) put the weight on me
