"You've Got A Friend"

(As recorded by James Taylor)
CAROLE KING

When you're down and troubled
And you need a helping hand
And nothin', wo nothin' is going right
Close your eyes and think of me
And soon I will be there
To brighten up even your darkest night.

You just call out my name
And you know wherever I am
I'll come runnin', oh yeah babe
To see you again
Winter, spring, summer, or fall
Now all you got to do is call
And I'll be there, yeah yeah yeah
You've got a friend.

If the sky above you
Should turn dark and full of clouds
And that 'ol north wind should begin to blow
Keep your head together
And call my name out loud, now
Soon I'll be knockin' upon your door.

You just call out my name
And you know wherever I am
I'll come runnin', oh yes I will
To see you again
Winter, spring, summer, or fall, yeah
All you got to do is call
And I'll be there, yeah yeah yeah

Hey ain't it good to know that you've got a friend
When people can be so cold
They'll hurt you, and desert you
Well they'll take your soul if you let them
Oh yeah, but don't you let them.

You just call out my name (out my name)
And you know wherever I am
I'll come runnin'
To see you again, oh babe, don't you know 'bout
Winter, spring, summer, or fall
Hey now all you got to do is call
Lord I'll be there, yes I will, oh
You've got a friend.

You've got a friend, yeah
Ain't it good to know you've got a friend
Ain't it good to know you've got a friend
Oh yeah, yeah
You've got a friend.
