When you're down and troubled 
And you need a helping hand
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 you head together 
And call my name out loud
Soon you'll hear me knocking at you door

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 

Ain't it good to know that you've got a friend 
When people can be so cold
They'll hurt you, and desert you
And take your soul if you let them

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 
You've got a friend 
 
Ain't it good to know you've got a friend 
Ain't it good to know you've got a friend
