The Weight

Lyrics

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.

Crazy Chester is still following me! Maybe it's the dog biscuits or the fact I'm a union soldier!

There is all kinds of talent and all kinds of songs. Beauty is in the eye and ear of the audience. I like The Band's music.

What a talented group. Hard to imagine how cool it would have been, recording and backing DYLAN. ROCK STARS traveling around,when a Rock star meant something. Sex Drugs and ROCK and ROLL. HELL YEAH

you've heard of dylan's basement tapes. they've just been officially been published, but they have been kicking around for decades as bootlegs. and, in case the didn't know it, THE BAND are the musicians who made the basement tapes with dylan. the tapes were recorded in the grungy basement of a house that came to be known as big pink. the band went to have their own hits of which this is one. damn good band or you don't get to play with dylan.

Overplayed? No doubt. Most classics are. Doesn't diminish it at all.

After seeing the doc about Levon Helm (Arkansas, USA), the sound of The Band, I don't want the Canadian Squire, Rob Robertson, getting any more money. Thumbs down and shame on you, Robbie!

Great song! We all need someone to take a load off at times. Thank God I have several people in my life that do. Blessed. Pray everyone does, sometimes that person is right in front of you and you don't even know it. Think about it...

Would you rather be on the bottom in a world of winners, or a winner in a world of losers ? I'd take the world of winners, one can always work their way to top :)
