        G       D/F#     C/E     D7sus4 [N.C.]
Verse 1:
        The road is l[G]ong [D/F#]     with many a w[C/E]inding turn[Am7]
        That l[D]eads[D#dim] us to [Em]who knows wh[F]ere, who knows w[Am7]here[Am7/D] [D7]
        But I'm st[G]rong [D/F#]     strong enough to c[Em]arry [Eb]him
        [G]  He ain't heavy [Am7]    [D7sus4]       he's my b[G]rother
        [1:  Am7 D7sus4] 
(So on...)
        [2:  Am7 G7/B ; to bridge] 
        [3: to barmonica solo] 
Verse 2:
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
He ain't heavy, he's my brother
        If I'm l[C]aden at [D7/C]all
        I'm l[C]aden with [D7/C]sadness
        that e[Bm]veryone's h[Dm]eart
        Isn't [Cmaj7]filled [B7]   with the g[Em]lad[G7/D]ness
            C   /B A7          Am7     D7 [N.C.]
Of love for one another
Verse 3:
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 l[G]oad [Bm]    [/F#]Does[/D]n't w[/F#]eigh [/D]me d[Em]own at [Eb]all
He ain't heavy, he's my brother
[barmonica solo over first two lines of verse] 
        H[G]e's my brother[D/F#] [Em] [D7sus4]
        He ain't he[G]avy [D/F#]     he's m[Cmaj7/E]y brother[D]
        He ain't he[G]avy [D/F#]     he's m[Cmaj7/E]y brother [D] [fade]
