You've Got a Friend

Carole King

When you're down and troubled, and you need some loving care,
And nothing, nothing 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 where I am,
     I'll come running to see you again.  
     Winter, spring, summer or fall, all you have to do is call,  
     And I'll be there, yes I will, you've got a friend.

If the sky above you grows dark and full of clouds,
And that old north wind begins to blow.
Keep your head together, and call my name out loud,
Soon you'll hear me knocking at your door.


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