Brother John

This song is by David Lindley and appears on the album Win This Record (1982).

Brother John

I remember the mornin`, I remember it well (Brother John is gone)
I remember the mornin´ that my Brother John fell (Brother John is gone)
He was a mighty man with a heart of steel (Brother John is gone)
and he never would bow and he never would kneel (Brother John is gone)


Refrain: (2x)
I`m gonna talk about my brother John (brother) my brother John (brother)
Brother John is gone
I say my brother John (brother) my brother John (oh brother)
Brother John is gone


Oh boy he died on the battlefield (Brother John is gone)
and the rest of his gang won`t bow, they won`t kneel (Brother John is gone)
He set a mighty goody fire on a mardi gras day (Brother John is gone)
and whoever wasn't ready better get out the way (Brother John is gone)

Refrain: (2x)

He was mighty brave when he sang his song (Brother John is gone)
and the rest of his gang they still carry on (Brother John is gone)
He sang "jacomo feena, ah feena nay" (Brother John is gone)
and he always sang like it's mardi gras day (Brother John is gone)

Refrain: (2x)
