You’ve got a friend

Carol King. I was very fortunate to see her perform in Amsterdam, somewhere in the eighties. Not my eighties though :P

Today I want to dedicate this song to my friends – especially to Paula and Jules. And to anyone who needs a friend tonight…

Will you sing with me?

  1. For some reason I am still not getting the updates in my mail my friend, so thank you for sending this along and also for thinking of me during this time. Love you and I love Carole King. Many of these songs were from the 70′s and a big part of my life then. Always good to hear her sing even today. ((hugs)) Much love.

      Back then, music was different than now. More pure, catching tunes and beautiful lyrics. I love the music from that time. Like James Taylor, Jackson Brown.
      Sing every day, lovely lady, I know you love to do that. And I will always listen.
      Love you to pieces,

        • When you’re down and troubled
          And you need some loving 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 to see you
          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
          Oh, but don’t 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

Let me hear your voice.
