(bob russell/bobby scott)The road is long with many a winding turnThat leads us to who knows where, who knows whenBut I’m strong--strong enough to carry himHe ain’t heavy, he’s my brotherSo on we go--his welfare is my concernNo burden is he to bear--we’ll get thereFor I know he would not encumber meHe ain’t heavy, he’s my brotherIf I’m laden at all--I’m laden with sadnessThat everyone’s heart isn’t filled with the gladness of love for one anotherIt’s a long, long road from which there is no returnWhile we’re on our way to thereWhy not share? And the load--it doesn’t weigh me down at allHe ain’t heavy, he’s my brotherHe ain’t heavy, he’s my brotherHe ain’t heavy. he’s my brother
