He Ain´t Heavy, He´s My Brother - The Hollies (Video, Lyrics & Chords)

Esta hermosísima canción de los Hollies tiene una gran historia detrás de ella.

El origen de su título "Él no es Pesado, Él es mi Hermano" viene de una fotografía de la guerra de Vietnam.

La imagen mostraba a un marine norteamericano llevando a un hombre vietnamita en su espalda.

El periodista le preguntó por qué lo había llevado tan lejos, y el soldado sonriendo a la cámara le dijo: "Él no es Pesado, Él es mi Hermano"




"He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother"
