これはクリソツ!「ザ・ウェイト」カラオケ:キーE版



Eに移調して、アコギを入れ、微修正した。ギターで三連十六分音符のシャッフル感が増した。
オリジナル(1968年)は少し曇った感じのある音なんだが、それより鮮明なのが笑える。

ボーカルは、コーラスがちゃんと入るかわからないので、カラオケでまず公開しておきたい。よいできだと思う。
そのうち完訳したい。最初のナザレスはイエスの出身地であるとされるイスラエルの町ではなく、東部ペンシルバニア州の町である。紛らわしい。
ナゼレスにたどり着いたが、死にそうだった
どこか休みをとる場所を見つけなければならない
「やあ、ミスター、どこか泊まれる場所は知らないかい」
そいつはにやっと笑って握手をすると「ノー」とだけ言った

荷物を下ろせよ、ファニー
下ろして自由になれよ
荷物を下ろせよ、ファニー
そんで、そんで、そんで、おれがその荷物をしょってやるぜ


歌詞カード
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

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

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

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

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
