I pulled in to Nazareth, was feeling '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, 'No'' was all he said Take a load off, Fanny Take a load for free Take a load off, Fanny And you put the load right on me I picked up my bag, I went looking for a place to hide When I saw Carmen and the Devil walking side by side I said 'Hey Carmen, come on, let's go downtown'' She said 'I gotta go but my friend can stick around'' Go down Miss Moses, there's nothing you can say It's just old Luke, and Luke's waiting on the judgment day 'Well, Luke my friend, what about young Anna-Lee?'' He said 'Do me a favour son, won't you stay and keep Anna-Lee company?'' Crazy Chester followed me and he caught me in the fog He said 'I will fix your rat 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?'' Catch a cannonball 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
