   May You Never  By   John martyn
CAPO ON 2nd FRET
[A]May[A7] you[D] never lay your[X20033] head down
[A]Without a hand to[D] hold;
[Em7]May you never make your[A] bed out in the [D]cold.

[A]You're just like great strong brother of mine;
And you[D] know that I[X20032] love you[D] true.
[X20032]
[A]And you never talk dirty behind my back,
And I[D] know that there's[X20032] those that do. 
[X20032]

[A]Oh please won't you[X0223X], please won't you
[XO225X] Bear it in mind:
[X20032]Love is a lesson to learn in our time.
[A]Now please won't you[X0223X], please won't you
[XO225X] Bear it in mind for[D]me.[X20032]
      [IT'S THE SAME FOR THE REST OF THE SONG]

May you never lay your head down
Without a hand to hold;
May you never make your bed out in the cold.

You're just like a good close sister to me,
And you know that I love you true.
And you hold no blade to stab me in my back,
I know that there's some that do.
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/m/martyn_john/may_you_never_crd.html ]
Oh please won't you, please won't you
Bear it in mind:
Love is a lesson to learn in our time.
And please won't you, please won't you
Bear it 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.

You're just like a great strong brother of mine,
You know that I love you true.
And you never talk dirty behind my back,
And I know that there's those that do.

Oh please won't you, please won't you
Bear it in mind:
Love is a lesson to learn in our time.
And please won't you, please won't you
Bear it in mind for me.
                                             
May you never lose your temper,
If you get in a bar-room fight.
May you never lose your woman overnight.
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 in a bar-room fight;
May you never lose your woman overnight.
May you never lose your woman overnight;
May you never lose your woman overnight.
May You Never, beautiful in its classic simplicity, was written for either a friend or Beverley's son Wesley..
*) There is a version with the following second verse:
You've been just like a good and close mother to me,
And you know I love you like I should.
You never talk about me behind my back,
And I know that there's times you could.
muffnote: The John Wood liner notes claim the song was eventually recorded in one take. May You Never also featured in the Titanic Town movie soundtrack however, during the production credits. Judging by the guitar playing this was definitely another version from the same period.
