May You Never
(John Martyn (lyrics version Ralph McTell which differ slightly from the original))

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

'Cause you're just like a big strong brother of mine,
And I know that you love me true.
You don't talk dirty behind my back
And I know that there's them that do.

So please won't ya please won't ya bear it in mind
I said love is a lesson to learn in our time.
And please won't ya please won't ya bear it in mind for me?

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

'Cause you're just like a big strong sister of mine
And I know that you love me true.
You ain't got no knife to stab me in my back
And I know that there's them that do.

So please won't ya please won't ya bear it in mind
I said love is a lesson to learn in our time.
And please won't ya please won't ya bear it in mind for me?


May you never lose that your temper of yours,
If you get in a bar room fight.
And I hope that you never lose your woman overnignt.
'Cause you're just like a big strong brother of mine,
And I know that you love me true.
You don't talk dirty behind my back
And I know that there's them that do.

So please won't ya please won't ya bear it in mind
I said love is a lesson to learn in our time.
Please..., Please..., bear it in mind for me?

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

May you never lose that your temper of yours,
If you get in a bar room fight.
And I hope that you never lose your woman overnignt.


May you never lose your woman...
May you never lose your woman...
May you never lose your woman overnight.
