Who sang the song with the lyric, "Take a load off Annie?"?

Answer

The song "The Weight" by Canadian artists The Band contains the refrain "Take a load off, Fannie," which is sometimes also interpreted as "Take a load off, Annie." Levon Helm, drummer and frequent lead vocalist in The Band, provides the song's vocals along with bassist Rick Danko.

"The Weight" is among the most famous songs released by The Band, if not the most famous. The song was first released in 1968 on the classic album "Music From Big Pink." The lyrics, written by Band guitarist Robbie Robertson, are simple yet ambiguous with an almost Biblical heft. Musically, the song combines a number of disparate influences, including country music, gospel and rock, to create something strikingly original and unlike anything audiences had heard at the time.
