Ian Shaw – My Brother lyrics

My brother, my brother, my brother
Would have kept a close watch,
Explained the unknown, played the bass trombone
In a marching band.
My brother, my brother, my brother
Would have married a nurse.
I could have played in the church,
Watched him carefully find
His sweetheart’s hand.

My brother was strong from our father’s side.
His back was straight and long, and when my father cried
Because he didn’t understand what I couldn’t say,
My brother was there for us all anyway.

My brother, my brother, my brother
Would have bought me a beer
In a New York bar, said I’ve gone too far,
Try to be a better man.
My brother, my brother, my brother
Left a message for me.
He said he’d left his wife to be free.
We’ll not all perfect you see,
My brother and me.

My brother was tall from my father’s side.
Too tall to tumble and fall, but when my father died,
He gathered us in like little birds in a nest.
He did what he could, he just did his best.

My brother, my brother, my brother
Lies in peace, so they say,
Like we all do one day,
Whatever the hell we believe.

My brother, my brother,
Still keeps a close watch,
Still explains the unknown.
I hear his bass trombone sometimes.

My brother was strong from my father’s side.
His back was straight and long, and when my father cried
‘Cause he didn’t understand what I just couldn’t say,
My brother was there for us all anyway.
Never alone, never alone.
