The Weight is a classic piece of Americana by a classic Americana outfit - Bob Dylan's backing group, 'The Band'. It was written by Robbie Robertson. Reputedly he looked at the label inside his Martin acoustic guitar, saw that it was made in Nazareth (Nazerath, PA, where the Martin Guitar Company is based), and came up with the song's first line, "Pulled into Nazareth..." The version below is by Peter Webster.
