I pulled in to Nazareth, I was feeling about half past dead.

I just need some place where I can lay my head.

He just grinned, shook my hand, "No" was all he said.

I picked up my bag.  I went looking for a place to hide.

When I saw Carmen and the devil walking side by side.

It's just old Luke, and Luke's waiting on the judgement day.
A                 C#m        D             A
"Well, Luke, my friend, what about young Anna Lee?"
A                   C#m           D                A
