  1. For HAITI

    He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother

    Written by Bobby Scott and Bob Russell.
    Hit single for The Hollies in 1969 and for Neil Diamond in 1970.

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

    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.
