The road is long
With many a winding turn
That leads us to who knows where
Who knows where
But I am strong enough to carry him
He ain't heavy, he's my brother

So on we go
His welfare is my concern
No burden is he to bear
We'll get there
For I know he will not encumber me
He ain't heavy, he's my brother

If I'm laden at all
I'm laden with sadness
That everyone's heart
Is not filled with gladness
Of love for one another

Thank you, Lord
Said it's a long...
I said it's a long...
Heyyy, it's a long, hard road
From which there is no return
While we're on the way to there
Why not share?
And the load
Doesn't weigh, doesn't weigh me down at all
He ain't heavy, he's my brother
He ain't heavy, he's my brother
