For all the guys and my little brother Howie who is gone 28 years. I love you see you soon.
My heart goes out to those guys that posted above about how "He ain't heavy...." reminds them of a painful time...The Vietnam War...painfu l for many, many millions but hardest for those who were "in country" and their familes. I bow to you guys! I don't approve of our government all too often, (especially when it comes to war, and the sending of you and your brothers sent into the belly of the beast) currently interested in trying to help vets stop short of taking their own lives. I live in
As a Vietnam Vet this song brings times of happiness along with torrents of tears for the BROTHERS I lost from any branche of service. My heart has never been whole starting from the first day I set a foot IN COUNTRY. THIS SONG LITERALLY. PULLED ME THRU. SOME VERY SAD TIMES. THEY SHALL ALWAYS HAVE AND CONTINUE TO BE "MY BROTHERS"
Lot a memories

This tune has been a big part of my life since most of my immediate family is with the Lord
I heard this enroute to the hospital to see my brother the last time, 30 years ago....he passed away the next day. I always thought it was very appropriate. . . a n d sad.
Nice!!! That's definitely a more thoughtful prayer...@ ba2campbell "stronger back, not a lighter load"
Just don't make music like this anymore...
Nice:)

Pray for a stronger back , Not a lighter Load
This is a great song. I always wanted a brother
This song will forever be in my heart. Such a shame music has disappeared .
One of the most poweful songs ever recorded
It's so sad that things have turned out the way they have! We had such Ideals bk than!
I lost my brother at a very young age of 19 yrs old. He was in Vietnam serving his country to protect us from harm. This song is so much a part of my life as when my brother came home in a casket I said "he an't heavy, he's my brother. Miss him dearly and waiting for the day I see him in Heaven.

My Bother Douglas passed away on 11/11/10 and this song reminds me of his love and kindness for others. He was the fifth of 10 brothers and 2 sisters. I missed him dearly.

Why is this song credited to Marcus Congleton? He wasn't even alive when this came out over 40 years ago. It was written by Bobby Scott and Bob Russell.

I just lost my brother, I was angry, anger blinded me and made me hard, I could not accept his path, his decisions. I buried him, there were only 6 there as we laid his ashes, he left me a card that said forgive me you know I love you, he was suppose to send it in Nov 2010, I found it in his kitchen drawer, he died alone, please if someone can learn from this tragedy and turn this negative experience into a positive his death will not have been in vain. Love is all there is.
I like this one to dedicate it to my precious "little" brother who sadly & suddenly passed away Aug. 21, 2010...I miss him so much my heart aches. He also loved this song and the artist so it's perfect...
he was heavy, but he still was my brother who passed away 10-29-10 Gone but NEVER FORGOTTEN !!!
This is a great song that we should keep in mind while sharing each others burdens, whether we are family or friends. Our relationship with one another would be a lot stronger in life if we kept this song in mind.
He's not heavy he's my brother!!!! I miss my brother he's gone but not forgotten!!! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! I love you bro!!!!
My brother disowned the family, now that's heavy!
actually he is pretty heavy. i put his fat a** in a wheel chair.
He's just a little on the chubby side.
My back hurts.
Sometimes even a brother can get pretty heavy.
