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.

First heard after listening to The Grateful Dead coming down from acid. I felt so relieved after listening to the endless non ending phrasing and pointless music. Thought I landed in church on Sunday morning with pancakes and waffles! Still a favorite.
I've always loved this song. It is one of my fav songs to walk to and def on my top bathtub karaoke playlist :-)
First heard this on the sound track album of Easy Rider. Been covered many times, but never can seem to turn it down when it comes on. Met a guy who said he was Luke. He had me convinced.
A song sure does. Yeah it does

Does anyone know if this is true? I heard somewhere that although Eric Clapton was asked to be a guitarist for both the Stones and the Beatles he turned them down, but when he wanted to join " The Band" he was rejected.

Miss you guys
Grab a beer fill the bathtub and whatever floats your boat and listen to this. Song and you slng hell I even sound good
The Band was The Band enough said.

What a great song. The Band was so incredibly tight on The Weight and all of Music From Big Pink. It is a shame that Richard, Rick and Levon are all dead.

Robertson writes like nobody else that's just the way it is..........
So american- nothing out there like this tune. Better than any bible story in my opinion.
You can't say OFF ANNIE w/o saying FANNY. And how about young Anna lee?
