May you never lay your head down without a hand to hold
May you never make your bed out in the cold
Verse 1
Your just like a great strong brother of mine and you know that I love you true
You never talk dirty behind my back and I know there are those that do
Won't you please, won't you please, won't you bear in mind
Love is a lesson to learn in our time
Won't you please won't please won't you bear 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
Verse 2
And your just like a good warm sister me and you know that I love you true
You hold no blade to stab me in the back and I know that some do
Won't you please won't you please won't you bear in mind
Life is a lesson to learn in our time
Won't you please won't you please won't you bear it 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
Repeat verse 1
May you never lose your temper if you get hit in a bar room fight
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
May you never lose your temper if you get hit in a bar room fight
May you never lose your woman over night x3

Agreed!

Oh, gawd, this is boring and saccharine.
Saw him open for Yes in 1973!
I think.
Yes, I think so.
Love John, saw him whenever I could and met him a few times.     no one makes music like this anymore.   a proper musicians musician, Phil Collins was his drummer/backing singer, and Gilmour his session strummer.  

this is some of his best work IMHO.

Nice version, though Eric Clapton had a good intimistic moment with this song, the acustic guitars here sound really good
I just watched Southcliffe on Netflix and thoroughly enjoyed it.  This song played a few times in the show, and there was one part where I was having trouble paying attention to the dialog because I kept subconsciously paying attention to the music in the background! {#Bananajam}
Not heard of john Martyn ( born '73) but this sounds like something Joni Mitchell would sing. Pleasant.
