Oak Ridge Boys, The - Touch A Hand (Make A Friend) Lyrics




Can't you feel it in your bones?
The change is coming on
From every walk of life

People seeing the light
Can't you feel it in your heart, now?
A new thing is taking shape
Reach out and touch a hand
Make a friend if you can

Reach out and touch a hand
Make a friend if you can
Reach out and touch a hand
Make a friend if you can

I've read of how to my friends
Any time come on in
We can find a better way
Why don't you join us today?
Can't you feel it in your heart, now?
A new thing is taking shape
Reach out and touch a hand
Make a friend if you can

Reach out and touch a hand
Make a friend if you can
Reach out and touch a hand
Make a friend if you can

It can be effective in the attitude
Of other people just like you
Reach out and touch a hand
Make a friend if you can
Can't you feel it in your heart, now
A new thing is taking shape
Reach out and touch a hand
Make a friend if you can

Reach out and touch a hand
Make a friend if you can
Reach out and touch a hand
Make a friend if you can

    When I was a kid, I thought they were saying, “Can’t you feel it in your heart now? A new thing at Steak N Shake!”

    I miss country music like this! Good times!

    MrEcm51 here's one more childhood memory of mine (on wrong lyrics topic) you may get a laugh out of. Now don't get me wrong I really like Metallica but this album came out I was in Middle School I believe. Anyhow I was riding in the car with some older friends who were pretty tough so with this song blaring I look at one of them say damn these boys sure do like their lemonade. Though I wasn't sure what the lyric was I knew it wasn't lemonade hahaha I just said that in efforts of bringing them back down to reality on their toughness. Had the whole car dying laughing. Good times. 😀https://youtu.be/Ckom3gf57Yw

    Dana Seibert

    Great song and great meaning. The whole world needs to hear this song and everyone should reach out,touch a hand and make a friend if you can.

    Logan Simon

    @Me Nono Don't feel bad about the Steve Miller one,when we were kids my little brother thought the chorus was "We don't care Adalina,Carolina's too far away."

    Reach out and touch a hand
    Make a friend if you can
    Reach out and touch a hand
    Make a friend if you can

    I'm Not saying that I Don't like Alabama there's a lot of songs I Love by Alabama!!!! I Love songs that sounds good to me and I started listening to the Oak Ridge Boys when I started my Freshman year in High School, starting with the song Elvira and Touch A Hand Make Friend... So I'm Not Trying To Be Sarcastic Or A Smartass I just like it when somebody starts in on me with Bullshit and make me out to be a Smartass!!! So you have a good day...
