"Weight" as written by Sevara Nazarkhan and Bruno Ellingham....
I pulled into Naserath
Was a feelin' 'bouta 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 Annie,
Take a load for free,
Take a load off Annie
And you put the load right on me.

I picked up my bag,
I went a looking for a place to hide.
When I saw Carmon and the devil
Walking side my side.
I said, "Hey Carmon, come on lets go downtown."
She said, "No. I gotta go but my friend can stick around."

Take a load off Annie,
Take a load for free,
Take a load off Annie
And you put the load right on me.

Crazy Chester followed me
And he caught me in the fog.
He said, " I'll fix your rack if you 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."


Take a load off Annie,
Take a load for free,
Take a load off Annie
And you put the load right on me.

Go down Mrs.Moses, there ain't nothing
That you can see.
It's just old Luke
And Lukes been waiting on a judgment day.
"Well Luke my friend, what about young annalee?"
He said, " do my a favor son would you stay and
Keep annalee company."

Take a load off Annie,
Take a load for free,
Take a load off Annie
And you put the load right on me.
Oh yeah yeah

Catch a cannonball, thata take me down the line.
My bag is sinking low and I do believe its time.
To get back to Mrs.Fanny, you know she's the only one.
Who sent me here with her and god to everyone.

Take a load off Annie,
Take a load for free,
Take a load off Annie
And you put the load right on me.
You put the load right on me yeah yeah
Ohhhh ohhhh
