You've Got A Friend


by Carol King
(James Taylor version)

 I:	( A - - - / D - - - / A - - - / G#m - C# - //)

When you're down and troubled and you need a helping hand
And nothing, oh, nothing is going right
Close your eyes and think of me and soon I will be there
To brighten up even your darkest nights

F#m - - - / C# - - - / F#m - C# - / F#m - - - / Bm - - - / E - - - / A - - - /    /
G#m - - - / C# - - - / F#m - C# - / F#m - - - / Bm - - - / C#m - - - / E - - - /   //

 C:	You just call out my name and you know where ever I am
I'll come running (oh ya baby) to see you again
Winter, spring, summer or fall, all you've got to do is call
And I'll be there, ya, ya, ya... You've got a friend

A - - - /   / D - - - / Bm - - - / A - - - /    / E - - - /    /
A - - - /   / D - - - / Bm - - - / D - D/C# - / Bm - - - // (Intro)

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

 C:	You just call out my name and you know where ever I am
I'll come running (oh ya baby) to see you again
Winter, spring, summer or fall, all you've got to do is call
And I'll be there...

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

G - - - / D - - - / A - - - /    / D - - - / G - - - /
F#m - - - / B - - - / E - - - / E7 - - - //

 C:	You just call out my name and you know where ever I am
I'll come running (oh ya baby) to see you again
Winter, spring, summer or fall, all you've got to do is call
And I'll be there, ya, ya, ya... You've got a friend
