Carole King - You've Got A Friend Lyrics




When you're down and troubled,
And you need some love and care,
And nothing, nothing is going 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 running 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 old north wind begins to blow
Keep your head together and call my name out loud
Soon you'll hear me knocking at your door

You just call out my name
And you know wherever I am
I'll come running, running, yeah, yeah, to see you again
Winter, spring, summer or fall
All you have to do is call
And I'll be there
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 running, running, yeah, yeah, yeah, 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, now
Oh, you've got a friend
Yeah, baby
You've got a friend
Oh yeah...
You've got a friend

  16. None None

    I have an old friend that this reminds me of. We would go and play pool or just hang out and we would always play this song in reference to our friendship. We were blessed with such friendship. Miss my old friend.

  17. Deon Crowe

    Judy Garwood

  18. Albertina Palacios

    one of the must touching songs ever written!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  19. James G

    Sent this to my dear friend Dmitry in Vladivostok, Russia. You’ve got a friend.

  20. Lyn Harrod

    Boy this is an oldie..I didn't realize some of the music of that time was so sad. Still good though.

    Amy Smith

    It's not sad... just more meaningful. We dont have that today. Shame.

  21. Shirleyanne Courtney Quinten

    I don't have a close friend, or any friends, I am a loner I think or life made me one when I had so much to give, I don't know why, I was divorced twice and moved and moved to so many places, divorced women were like social lepers in the 1970's, the wife had to have been at fault.... so friends were never made, I think I have had the loneliest life on the planet , I adored music I always have , I adore animals and of course my three gorgeous grown up kids, but lasting love eluded me, I would have made the best wife in the world only I married two abusive men, I would give anything for a friend, life is short and can be so lonely, I wonder why when I had it all when I was young, I love this song, I imagine I have a friend and I'm singing this to her or him ..

  22. Girija Menon

    This was my 8 year old niece 's favorite song. She suffered from a tumor in her brain and everytime she was relieved of her pains, only for a short spell of time, she would ask me to sing this song for her.
    This was many many years ago. I still cry when I hear this song.
    I miss you so much Su. I know you are not in pain anymore.

    Thomas Jefferson

    Girija,IF YOU STAY GLUED TO THE LORD JESUS ,you'll be seeing her again,HEAVEN IS A PARADISE FOR CHILDREN,been there and seen it...

    Girija Menon

    @Thomas Jefferson Thanks so much.

  23. Phil Davison

    Thanks, Carole. For everything.

  24. Teresa Urrutia

    Carole King ,parece que me equivoqué de época yo debería haber nacido en la época que Carole King nació hubiéramos sido amigas

  25. Lidor Mizrhai

    אם אתם לא יודעים זה שיר בספר אנגלית "Imagine" לכיתות ט' בעמוד 28, די מפתיע אותי שזה לא שיר לילדים בגן אלא שיר טוב ורגוע שעשוי טוב.

  26. City Wide

    The album cover brings back strong memories of childhood. So young when this came out. I remember staring at the cat. lol

  33. Victoria Trambley

    Nov 17, 2019: Thanks very much. I heard this album for the first time in 1975 while visiting an acquaintance at his apartment near the Presidio in San Francisco. If I remember correctly, the Presidio had become his permanent duty station. Sharing the rent with others had given him a nice place that overlooked the city. Note: I was in AIT training at Letterman Medical Center, and had also been given the option to stay. I chose to return to my home state of New Mexico (White Sands Missile Range) to be near my boyfriend, former marine, Sgt Manuel R. Martinez. Sadly, he rolled his new 240Z Datsun south of Santa Fe in August and was killed instantly. Manuel was a gentle marine with a huge grin and a big heart. You still remain in my heart Manuel. Katrina

You've got a friend was a solo composition originally on the Tapastry album. She gave the song to James Taylor who had a massive hit. James Taylor was at one time married to Carly Simon
