    It is Fanny, and it's by a band called Travis the song is called "the weight".

    I pulled into 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 old 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 nothin' you can say

    It's just old Luke, and Luke's waiting on the judgement day

    "Well, Luke, my friend, what about young Anna Lee?"

    He said, "Do me a favor, son, won't you stay and keep Anna Lee company?"

    Crazy Chester followed me, and he caught me in the fog

    Said, "I will fix your rack, if you'll take Jack, my dog"

    I said, "Wait a minute Chester, you know, I'm a peaceful man"

    He said, "That's OK, boy, won't you feed him when you can"

    Catch a Cannonball, now 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
