May You Never

Capo on 4th fret
	  		 
 
G   F   C              Am 
May you never lay your head down, 
G                 C 
without a hand to hold. 
         Am             G              C   F C 
May you never make your bed out in the cold. 
 
G  
You're just like a great strong brother of mine; 
        C           F        C   
And you know that I love you true. 
        G 
And You never talk dirty behind my back 
      C                 F          C 
and I know that there's those that do. 
   G 
Oh please won't you, please won't you bear it in mind 
Am                               F
