May You Never
John Martyn Lyrics


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

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 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.
Now 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 good close sister to me,
And you know that I love you true.
And you hold no blade to stab me in my back,
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,
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 overnight.
May you never lose your woman overnight;
May you never lose your woman overnight.
[There is a version with the following second verse]
You've been just like a good and close mother to me,
And you know I love you like I should.
You never talk about me behind my back,
And I know that there's times you could.

you gotta feel sorry for the people who have hit the dislike button. to live your life without a soul is tragic

dave owen

They probably wank off to Lady Gaga or Beiber

@zivkovicable My complaint is never about people's tastes. It is about their booing. Booing gets on my nerves, as do the people who defend it.

zivkovicable

@Dino Dini well I’m a fan of Mr. Martyn’s & even got to play with him a few times & separately with Danny Thompson.if that counts for anything...I think I have pretty good soul credentials as far as playing music is concerned at least...
Still, people who think their taste in music is sacrosanct get on my nerves. In particular people who leave those kind of comments under YouTube clips...

Dino Dini

@zivkovicable Some of us want to live in a world that has soul. Soul is universal. Good luck.

Ben Pearl

@zivkovicable exactly that’s what the mighty Joe is preaching
