Chris Stapleton - Friendship Lyrics

Say, what's wrong, my long time friend?
Something's bothering you
Tell me what the problem is
I'll see what I can do
There are times we disagree
We agree more than we don't
We won't always see eye to eye
But we will more than we won't

We got friendship
The kind that lasts a lifetime
Through all the hardship, you know, you're a friend of mine
Yeah we got friendship
The kind that lasts a lifetime
Through all the hardship, you know, you're a friend of mine

If you're on the street, I'll take your hand
If you're hungry, I'll give you food
If it's money you need, I got some saved
If you're sick, I'll visit you
I've been where you are right now
You saw me through it all
I'll lean on you, you can lean on me
I'm never gonna let you fall

'Cause we got friendship
The kind that lasts a lifetime
Through all the hardship, you know, you're a friend of mine
Yeah we got friendship
The kind that lasts a lifetime
Through all the hardship, you know, you're a friend of mine

Talk to me you're pal of mine
If you feel you can't go on
Don't you sweat, it ain't over yet
This bond we share is strong
Now your welfare is my concern
You weigh less than you think
I'll carry you through the sinking sand
See if I let you sink

'Cause we got friendship
The kind that lasts a lifetime
Through all the hardship, you know, you're a friend of mine
Yeah, we got friendship
The kind that lasts a lifetime
Through all the hardship, you know, you're a friend of mine
Yeah, we got friendship
The kind that lasts a lifetime
Through all the hardship, you know, you're a friend of mine
Through all the hardship, you know, you're a friend of mine

  78. Melissa W

    I have listened to a couple of his interviews, what comes through the most is humble, loves music, knows he has a gift, and gracious about every aspect of his talent.

    Here's an interview:

    He says:
    I like music
    I don't care what the labels are
    and I hate when people argue about it like there's some right or wrong answer.
    If you don't like something don't listen to it.
    Listen to something else.
    But go listen to music and buy a ticket to a live show because that is what keeps music healthy.

    I admire this person.

  79. Zandra Falcone

    Love your music!

  80. Carolina R.


  81. Adam Bunton
