(1)I pulled in to Nazareth, I was feeling about half past dead.
(2)I picked up my bag. I went looking for a place to hide.
(3)Go down, Miss Moses, there's nothing you can say.
(4)Crazy Chester followed me and he caught me in the fog.
(5)Get your Canonball now, to take me down the line.

 I just need some place where I can lay my head.         
When I saw Carmen and the devil walking side by side.
It's just old Luke, and Luke's waiting on the judgement day.
He said, "I will fix your rack, if you'll take Jack my dog."
My bag is sinking low, and I do believe it's time

 "Hey, Mister, can you tell me where a man might find a bed?"
I said, "Hey, Carmen, come on. Let's go downtown."
"Well, Luke, my friend, what about young Anna Lee?
I said,"Wait a minute, Chester. You know I'm a peaceful man."
To get back to Miss Fanny. You know she's the only one

 He just grinned, shook my hand, "No" was all he said.   
She said, "I got to go, but my friend can stick around."
"He said, "Do me a favor, son, won't you stay and keep Anna Lee company."
He said, "That's okay, boy. Won't you feed him when you can?"
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  you put the load right on me.

The song lyrics are set up badly. Each song verse is on one of five lines. Let me give you an example. If you want the first verse and there are five verses then you will have to look at the top of each of the four "verses", so it is easy to get confused.
