BTW, I always thought it was "Take a load off Fanny", but is it "Take a load off Annie"?
The Bands version (with levon Helm leading the vocals was "Take the Load Off Fannie". That's also the version that was in "Easy rider". However as originally written by band member Robbie Robertson, the original chorus lyric was "Take the load off Anny".
