  • And may you never lay your head down
    Without a hand to hold
    May you never make your bed out in the cold

    You're just like a great strong brother of mine
    You know that I love you true
    And you never talk dirty behind my back
    And I know that there's those that do

    Oh please won't you, please won't you
    Bear it in mind
    Love is a lesson to learn in our time
    Now please won't you, please won't you
    Bear it in mind for me

    And may you never lay your head down
    Without a hand to hold
    May you never make your bed out in the cold

    Well you're just like a good close sister to me
    You know that I love you true
    And you hold no blade to stab me in the back
    And I know that there's some that do

    Oh please won't you, please won't you
    Bear it in mind
    Love is a lesson to learn in our time
    And please won't you, please won't you
    Bear it in mind for me

    May you never lay your head down
    Without a hand to hold
    May you never make your bed out in the cold

    You're just like a great strong brother of mine
    And you know that I love you true
    And you never talk dirty behind my back
    And I know that there's those that do

    Oh please won't you, please won't you
    Bear it in mind
    Love is a lesson to learn in our time
    And please won't you, please won't you
    Bear it in mind for me

    May you never lose your temper
    If you get in a bar room fight
    May you never lose your woman overnight

    May you never lay your head down
    Without a hand to hold
    May you never make your bed out in the cold
    May you never lose your temper
    If you get in a bar room fight

    May you never lose your woman over night
    May you never lose your woman over night
    May you never lose your woman over night Writer/s: John Martyn
