You've Got a Friend

: Got to Be There
January 24, 1972
When you're down and troubled
And you need some love and care
And nothin', no nothin' is goin' right
Just close your eyes and think of me
And soon I'll be there to brighten up
Yeah, even your darkest night
You just call out my name
And you know, wherever I am
I'll come a-runnin'
To see you again

Winter, spring, summer or fall
All you have to do is call
And I'll be there, yeah I will
You've got a friend

When the sky above you
Grows dark and full of clouds
And that old north wind
He begins to blow
Here's what you do baby
Keep your head together
And call my name out loud
And soon you'll hear me
Knockin' at your door
Oh yes I will, yes I will
You just call out my name
And you know, wherever I am
I'll come a-runnin'
To see you again

Winter, spring, summer or fall
All you have to do is call
And I'll be there, yeah I will
You've got a friend

Ain't it good to know
That you've got a friend
People can be so cold
They'll hurt you and desert you
And take your soul if you let them
Oh, don't let them

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, yes you do
You've got a friend, yes you do
Right till the end, for you
Ain't it good to know
