The road is long
With many a winding turn
That leads us to who knows where

But I'm strong
Strong enough to carry him

No burden is he to bear
We'll get there

For I know

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 

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