I pulled into Nazareth, was feelin' about 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 (and) (and) you put the load right on me (You put the load right on me) I picked up my bag, I went lookin' for a place to hide When I saw Carmen and the Devil walkin' side by side I said, "Hey, Carmen, come on let's go downtown" She said, "I gotta go but my friend can stick around" Take a load off, Fanny Take a load for free Take a load off, Fanny And (and) (and) you put the load right on me (You put the load right on me) Go down, Miss Moses, there's nothin' you can say It's just ol' Luke and Luke's waitin' on the Judgment 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?" Take a load off, Fanny Take a load for free Take a load off, Fanny And (and) (and) you put the load right on me (You put the load right on me) 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" Yeah, take a load off, Fanny Take a load for free Take a load off, Fanny And (and) (and) you put the load right on me (You put the load right on me) Catch a cannon ball now to take me down the line My bag is sinkin' 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 Take a load off, Fanny Take a load for free Take a load off, Fanny And (and) (and) you put the load right on me (You put the load right on me)

My father's last night on earth was Dec 18 1997. I got the call he was being made to be comfortable. I walked in an knew it was going to the last night. This was one of his favorite songs. So I loaded my portable CD player and played this song using my headphones. I set the headphones are N top of his head. My father absolutely relished this song into his soul. This was a comfort that I could offer as it was my way of saying goodbye pops...he laid there smiling. It was an unexpecting surprise because very few people knew it was his favorite song. He passed away 4 hours. I hope that this song resonated through eternity though the outer limits of time. Miss you always Dad. See you on the flip side.

well heres what i call a lil miracle...

I actually came here writing a book, about my dead father. with all due respect to broken hip and anybody else in the comments dealing with grief.

we have an odd sense of humor in my family, our way of sort of laughing the weight off.

long story short my story is unbelievable, but as true as i know how to comprehend the events.

I'll send links later.

it deals with a like time travel revelations prophecy. i'm definitely a passionate, quirky artist type. lil manic, but... ill just say if there is no god... then man i'm on a good one :) but being a believer (my artsy type bleeds over to my interpretation of gods ways.

and they are mysterious yet here we all are.

I once met my dad 13 years after he died,

he died on my moms bday when i was 4.


the person i met looked like my dad looked in pictures. and considering it was midnight in a small town of 7k people and i was actively looking for my dad via a dickens style chrismas carol time travel warm hole. so of the 5 people i talked too... the chances of meeting one with the same name (and yes i paid the man 20 dollars to prove it by showing me his license, and fair enough my dads name is pretty common)

I didnt check the dob ect. and later via mutual friends i was able to confirm the man was from around the area, but for the 15 mins or so we talked (and i prolly seemed totally bonkers to him... trying to explain what had happened)

I got exactly what i'd asked the voice in my head for my christmas gift. in fact the voice guided me right to him. its kinda like talking to a radio dj,,, a lil overwhelming, but,,, er like the scene from short circuit 2... where they get help using songs,

that was 12-22-01

happy early merry christmas brokenhip... I heard the song playing from the otherside, they must be listening to it together :)

and this is barely the tip of the iceburg nutshell of an equally unbelievable story.

the night they drove ol dixie down ;) well my dads bday is may 9th, from danville to nazareth is i-80, my dad died in a car wreck on I-80, (we're from the west coast but close enough for me)

I really try to not sound conceited or narcisistic. its just the only tone i know how to try explaining this stuff. I try to keep it sensicle (... and parenthesis) but this is sorta a rough draft.

take care everybody

I was travelling and couldn't find a vacancy in any hotel for me and my family. I was beyond tired but found a place without the "no vacancy" sign lit and thinking about this song, I really asked the man, "Hey mister, can you tell me, where a man might find a bed?." He grinned, shook my hand and said, "No." and nothing more. My life is weird.
