When you're down and troubled
and you need some love and care
And nothin, nothin is goin 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 to see you again
Winter, spring, summer or fall
All you have to do is call
And I'll be there
You've got a friend

If the sky above you
Grows dark and full of clouds
And that ol north wind begins to blow
Keep your head together
and call my name out loud
Soon youll hear me knockin at your door

You just call out my name
and you know wherever I am
I'll come runnin to see you again
Winter, spring, summer or fall
All you have to do is call
And I'll be there
Yes I will

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 you let them

You just call out my name
And you know wherever I am
I'll come runnin 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
You've got a friend
Ain't it good to know, you've got a friend
Ain't it good to know, ain't it good to know, ain't it good to know,
You've got a friend, oh yeah
You've got a friend, yeah baby
You've got a friend, oh yeah
You've got a friend.
