You placed gold on my finger you brought love like I've never known
You gave life to our children and to me a reason to go on
You're my bread when I'm hungry you're my shelter from troubled winds
You're my anchor in life's ocean but most of all you're my best friend

When I need hope and inspiration you're always strong when I'm tired and weak
I could (search this whole world over you'd still be everything that I need)
You're my bread (when I'm hungry you're my shelter from troubled winds
You're my anchor in life's ocean but most of all you're my best friend)
You're my bread (when I'm hungry you're my shelter from troubled winds
You're my anchor in life's ocean) but most of all you're my best friend

    This song was actually written by a lady in north georgia as a gospel son. That is not a guess that is fact.

    According to my understanding, this song was composed by a married woman to express her feelings of being loved by her husband. She was also trying to tell her husband not to disown her cos she loved him so much. It was also meant to let the husband understand how much she loved and relied on him always. This song was just like a reminder to that married man that the wife was actually need him and she could be dead if he leaves her to another woman. This song is a reminder about other people who had said that 'a friend in need is a friend indeed'.
