Song Author Bob Russell og Bobby Scott Lyrics by: Bob Russell og Bobby Scott Performer: The Hollies og Tommy Emmanuel Submitted by: gilsi

[G]    [D/F#]    [C/E]    [D7]    
The road is [G]long[D/F#] with many a [C/E]winding turns[Am7]    
That [D]leads[D#dim] us to       [Em]who knows w[F]here, who knows wh[Am7]ere    
But I'm st[G]rong[D/F#] strong enough to c[Em]arry h[D#]im   
[G] He ain't heavy [Am7]    [C/D]he's my [G]brother [Am7]    [C/D]    

So on we [G]go   [D/F#] his welfare is of [C/E]my concern[Am7]    
No [D]bur  [D#dim]den is       [Em]he to [F]bear, we'll get [Am7]there [C/D]    [D]    
For I k[G]now [D/F#] he would not e[Em]ncumber [D#]me   
[G] He ain't heavy [Am7]    [C/D]he's my [G]brother [Am7]    

If I'm[C] laden at a[D/C]ll    
I'm la[C]den with s[D/C]adness
that e[Bm]veryone's h[Dm]eart   
Isn'[Cmaj7]t fill      [B7]ed with the [Em]gladn[Em/D]ess     
Of lo[C]ve  [C/B] for[Am7] one ano[D7]ther   

It's a long, long r[G]oad  [D/F#] from which there is no [C/E]return [Am7]    
While w[D]e'r  [D#dim]e on the wa[Em]y to ther[F]e, why not sha[Am7]re [C/D]    [D]    

And the l[G]oad [Bm]    [D/F#]Doesn'     [D]t w  [D/F#]eigh me[D] down at [Em]all [D#]    
[G] He ain't heavy, [Am7]    [C/D] he's my b[G]rother

[G]    [D/F#]    [C/E]    [D7]    


The road is long with many a winding turns
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 on we go his welfare is of 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 laden with sadness
that 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 Doesn't weigh me down at all
He ain't heavy, he's my brother
