He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother!

Written by Bobby Scott and Bob Russell, this is a popular music ballad was recorded by The Hollies in the late Sixties. Part of the lyrics...

...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...

It is exactly what Winnie's eyes say when Tommy, who is sizes bigger and heavier, lay his big heavy head on her in EJ's household where all differ in size, age, colour, mood and character.


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

Thank you for a comment. The phrase"He ain't heavy. He's my brother" sounds familiar to me. When I was small, I went to a concert of a choir from the Boys Town in the US. I think that was the first time I heard this phrase. Thanks for reconnecting me to my old memory. It's a nice phrase.

That song is one of my favourites both because of the words and because Neil Diamond made such a fabulous job of singing it. Anyway, it's cute that the cats like it too...

Great song for a great picture. I just love how Winnie is looking at the camera and definitely seems to be thinking about the words to this song. So percious.

That is a great song to go with a super picture. It is so much fun when two kitties get along so well, especially brothers.
Have a super day.
