I was there that night in Bethlehem
And when Neil and the boys came to the moon
In that tin can
At Gettysburg, Omaha Beach, and Vietnam
I heard every soldier's cry and every mama's prayer
I was there
I was there when you took your first breath
And when you lit that stolen Lucky Strike
And liked to choked to death
When you were waist deep in Carter's Creek
And Preacher John
Dunked you down in the water and raised you up for air
I was there
Chorus:
I'm always around
I was then and I am now
And I'll be here when tomorrow comes
When a road comes to an end
I'm where you start again
I'm never farther than a word away
You've always got a friend
When your grandma passed
I was in that house
And when your grandpa ran down the streets o' gold
To show her around
I was there
Chorus:
I'm always around
I was then and I am now
And I'll be here when tomorrow comes
When a road comes to an end
I'm where you start again
I'm never farther than a word away
You've always got a friend
I was there last night on Highway 9
When you answered the phone
And ran right through that stop sign
I was in the cab of that big rig, in that trucker's ear
Made him swerve to the right and miss you by a hair
I was there
If you're feelin' alone, look up, I'm the One who answers prayers
And I'm always there
