An epic ballad of weariness of the road. 

PULLED INTO NAZARETH BY WILLIAM BLICK 34THPARALLEL MAGAZINE ISSUE 17

“Pulled into Nazareth, feeling about half past dead/ Just lookin for a place where I can lay my head”—this song, The Weight, by Robbie Robertson as performed by the Band, is an epic ballad of weariness of the road. The road—the long winding road—has been a source of inspiration for many great folk singers, country balladeers, and classic and southern rock troubadours in American music.
