Gaslight Anthem – The Weight chords
This is a solo acoustic cover of The Band's "The Weight" as performed by Brian Fallon of The Gaslight Anthem. X is close to Gmaj7, but the A string is left open. It's supposedly called G/F# or Gmaj7(minus3) or whatever. I'll just call it X.G X Cadd9 D Bm3 3 3 2 23 3 3 3 3 0 0 0 2 4 0 0 2 0 4 2 0 3 x 2 3 2 x x x Intro/Break G-X-Cadd9-D-Cadd9 VerseG Bm Cadd9 GPulled in to Nazareth, was feeling about half past deadI just need some place where I can lay my head "Mister, can you tell me where a man might find a bed?" He just grinned, shook my hand, "No" was all he said ChorusG D Cadd9Take a load off, FannyG D Cadd9Take a load for freeG D Cadd9Take a load off, Fanny...And you put the load right on meBreak 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 gotta go but my friend can stick around" Chorus Break Go down Miss Moses, there's nothing you can say It's just old Luke, and Luke's waiting on the judgement day I said "Luke my friend, what about young Anna-Lee?" He said "Do me a favor son, won't you stay and keep Anna-Lee company?" Chorus Break Crazy Chester followed me and he caught me in the fog He said "I will fix your raft if you'll take Jack my dog" I said "Wait a minute Chester, now I'm a peaceful man" He said "That's okay boy, won't you feed him when you can?" Chorus Break Catch a cannonball 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 Chorus Break Chorus
