The Weight (Feat. The Staples)

on A Musical History

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.

Almost like this version better... interesting that live version is smoother, not as folky as the original, although both are awesome.
