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...
