|As you all may remember that before I took the job of fronting the Midnight Cowboys I was fronting the Spanking Eggplants… and that alone ought to make you think of our dear Fanny Fae… and if it didn’t it will now. Sorry Fanny, but really people are so Pavlovian that I can’t help messin’ with their minds like that.|
But fortunately we are going to get close to Bob Dylan without actually getting Bob Dylan… we are getting to the Band… and The Weight… so Fanny, put your feet up and take a load off…
I pulled into Nazareth, 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 man might find a bed?"
He just grinned and shook my hand, and "No!", was all he said.
Take a load off Fannie, take a load for free;
Take a load off Fannie, And (and) (and) you can put the load right 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."
Go down, Miss Moses, there's nothin' you can say
It's just ol' 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, woncha stay an' keep Anna Lee company?"
Crazy Chester followed me, and he caught me in the fog.
He said, "I will fix your rags, 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, t'take me down the line
My bag is sinkin' low and I do believe it's time.
To get back to Miss Annie, you know she's the only one.
Who sent me here with her regards for everyone.
My my my… look how easy this it to do. It’s a wonder you know that there is not more of this stuff going on…
