I heard a song used on a cell phone ad that I haven't heard in many years. Can't think of the name or the group, I used to have the album but just can't think of it, it is driving me nuts help please?

Goes something like this

"I pulled into Nazareth about half past dead
Asked a man if he knew a place where I could lay my head
He just grinned and shook my hand, No was all he said.

Take a load off Frannie, take a load off free"

I have a recording around my house somewhere of Aretha Franklin doing that song... I don't generally like "covers," and I definitely prefer the version by The Band, but man, can she sing that song!

A little more trivia... Robbie Robertson and the Band served as Bob Dylan's band from 65 til' 76. Robbie also directed and starred in the movie "Carny" in 1980.

One of my favorites from those 'good ole days'
It is a trick by commercial creators;
I am real good at turning them off...
except when they pop an "oldie" into it and I suddenly give my attention. ;-)

"The Weight"

~The Band

The group was called quite simply, "The Band" Written by Robbie Robertson, I think. They were better known for "Up on Cripple Creek" and "The Night They Drove Ole Dixie Down" Back around 1972, some years back....

"The Band" is the group...the name of your song is.........drum roll please......."The wait"

This song was also (covered) re-produced by "The Wallflowers."

Woo Hoo!

Travis Lyrics

The Weight

I pulled into Nazareth, was feelin' '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, and "No" was all he said

Take a load off Fanny
Take a load for free
Take a load off Fanny
And (and) (and) you can put the load right on me


Picked up my bag, 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) you can put the load right on me

Go down, Miss Moses, there's nothin' you can say
It's just old Luke, and Luke's waitin' on the Judgement Day
"Well Luke, my friend, what about young Anna Lee?"
He said, "Do me a favour, son, won't you stay an' keep Anna Lee company?"

Take a load off Fanny
Take a load for free
Take a load off Fanny
And (and) (and) you can put the load right on me

Crazy Chester followed me, and he caught me in the fog
He said, "I will fix your rack, if you'll take Jack, my dog"
I said, "Wait a minute, Chester, I'm a peaceful man"
He said, "That's OK, just feed him when you can"

Take a load off Fanny
Take a load for free
Take a load off Fanny
And (and) (and) you can put the load right on me

Catch a cannon ball 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

Take a load off Fanny
Take a load for free
Take a load off Fanny
And (and) (and) you can put the load right on me
