Hey Brother Lyrics
Jump to:
[Verse 1]
Hey Brother, there's an endless road to re-discover.
Hey Sister, Know the water's sweet but blood is thicker.
Ooooh if the sky comes falling down, for you, there's nothing in this world I wouldn't do.

[Verse 2]
Hey Brother, do you still believe in one another?
Hey Sister, do you still believe in love I wonder?
Ooooh if the sky comes falling down, for you, there's nothing in this world I wouldn't do.

[Chorus]
What if I far from home?
Oh Brother I will hear you call.
What if I lose it all?
Oh Sister I will help you out!
Ooooh if the sky comes falling down, for you, there's nothing in this world I wouldn't do.

[Verse 3]
Hey Brother, there's an endless road to re-discover.
Hey Sister, do you still believe in love I wonder?
Ooooh if the sky comes falling down, for you, there's nothing in this world I wouldn't do.

Aaaaaah, What if I fall from home?
Oh brother I will hear your call.
What if I lose y'all?
Oh sister I will help out!
Oooh with the the sky comes falling down, for you, there's nothing in this world I wouldn't do.

Hey Brother Info:

Hey Brother is from Avicii's debut studio album, True (2013). It features uncredited vocals from American bluegrass singer Dan Tyminski, and was written by Avicii, Ash Pournouri, Salem Al Fakir and Vincent Pontare.

Avicii tried six different singers before going with Dan Tyminski, who was the voice of The Soggy Bottom Boys from O Brother, and sang on their most popular song from the film, Man Of Constant Sorrow. Talking about the appeal of Bluegrass in Rolling Stone, Avicii said it was "credible and kind of cool in the sense that it's very melodic."

The song was used in a TV advertisement for NJOY's "Friends Don't Let Friends Smoke" e-cigarette campaign. There are two variations of the commercial - the US edition of the ad features a squirrel at the beginning whilst the "European version" starts with a naked man.
