The Band: The Weight Meaning

The Weight Lyrics

I pulled into Nazareth, was feelin' about half past dead
Just need to find a place where I can lay my head
"Hey, mister, can you tell me where a man can find a bed?"
He just smiled and shook my hand, and "No" was all he said

Take a load off...

    Actually, Robertson got the name "Nazareth" in the 1st line from the label inside guitar he wrote the song on - a Martin Guitar manufactured in Nazareth PA. Robertson himself never visited Nazareth PA.

    Somewhere I read Robbie Robertson's explanation of this song. He said that, in writing it, he was influenced by the film maker Luis Bunuel. Nazareth refers not to the biblical Nazareth, but to Nazareth Pennsylvania, where the Martin guitar company is located. The song is about someone traveling there, and being asked to do many favors for others when he arrives.
