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

    General CommentThis song is allegedly about a journalist (I can't mention names) who John was great friends with. The pair apparently were in a bar one night when John struck a man who had been sleeping with John's wife and the journalist had to pull John off of the man and diffuse the situation. So the song is essentialy about good friendships and knowing where the line is in terms of keeping your cool etc. I love the song!
