"The Weight" is a bonus track from international versions of The Red Album.



This is a cover of a song by The Band. It features both Rivers Cuomo and Scott Shriner singing lead vocals, with the latter doing the majority of the singing.



I pulled in to 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

Take a load off, Fanny
Take a load for free
Take a load off, Fanny
And you put the load right on me

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

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

Crazy Chester followed me and he caught me in the fog
He said "I will fix your rat 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?

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
