Bill Medley – He Ain't Heavy... He's My Brother lyrics

The road is long with a many a winding turn
That leads us to who knows where
Who knows where.
But I'm strong
Strong enough to carry him
He ain't heavy
He's my brother.

So one we go
His welfare is my concern

No burden is he to bear
We'll get there.
For I know he would not encumber me
He ain't heavy
He's my brother.
If I'm laden at all I'm just laden with sadness

That's everyone's heart isn't filled with the gladness
Of love for one another.

It's a long
Long road from which there is no return

While we're on the way to there
Why not share?
And the load
The load does not weigh me down
Down at all
He ain't heavy
He's my brother.

He ain't heavy
He's my brother

He ain't heavy
He ain't heavy
He's my brother
