A               C#m             D                       A 
I pulled in to Nazareth, I was feeling about half past dead.
A C#m D A
I just need some place where I can lay my head.
A C#m D A
"Hey, Mister, can you tell me where a man might find a bed?"
A C#m D A
He just grinned, shook my hand, "No" was all he said.


A A/G# D
Take a load off, Fanny.
A A/G# D
Take a load for free.
A A/G# D
Take a load off, Fanny.
D A
And... you put the load right on me.

A A/G# |F#m7 E |D | :|


I picked up my bag. I went looking for a place to hide.
When I saw Carmen and the devil walking side by side.
I said, "Hey, Carmen, come on. Let's go downtown."
She said, "I got to go, but my friend can stick around."

(refrain)

Go down, Miss Moses, there's nothing you can say.
It's just old Luke, and Luke's waiting on the judgement day.
"Well, Luke, my friend, what about young Anna Lee?"
He said, "Do me a favor, son, won't you stay and keep Anna Lee company."

(refrain)

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. You know I'm a peaceful man."
He said, "That's okay, boy. Won't you feed him when you can?"

(refrain)

Get your Canonball 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.

(refrain)

Rolling Stones: Get Off My Cloud [Ukulele Chords]

 
  B          A
I live on an aparmtent
B A E A B A
On the ninty nith floor of my block
And I sit at home lookin' out of the window and
imaginin' the world has a topped

Then in flies a guy
all dressed up like a Union Jack
And says I've won five pounds
if I have this kind of dentergent pack

E G#m A B
Hey you get off of my cloud
D B
Don't hang around, 'cause two's a crowd on my cloud baby !

The telephone is rinin'
I say "Hi it's me, who is there on the line ?"
A voice says "Hi hello
how are you ? Well I guess I am doin' fine"

He says "It's three a.m. there's too much noise
Don't you people want to go to bed"
Just cause you feel so good, do you have to
Drive me out of my head

CHORUS

I was sick and tired , fed up wth this
and decide to take a drive down town
It was so very quiet and peaceful,
there was nobody, not a soul around.

I laid myself down, I was so tired
and I started to dream
In the morning the perking tickets were just like
flags on my windscreen

CHORUS
