  don't you   let them                                     You just...
Verse 1
When you're down and troubled, and you need a helping hand,
And nothing, whoh nothing is going right.
Close your eyes and think of me, and soon I will be there,
To brighten up even your darkest night.


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


Verse 2
If the sky above you should turn dark and full of clouds,
And that old north wind should begin to blow,
Keep your head together, and call my name out loud now,
Soon I'll be knocking at your door.


Chorus


Bridge
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, don't you let them.


Chorus
