When you're down and troubled and you need a helping hand
And nothin' oh nothin' is goin' 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 runnin' to see you again
Winter spring summer or fall all you've got to do is call and I'll be there
You've got a friend oh you've got a friend

If the sky above you should turn dark and full of clouds
And that old north wind should begin to blow oh
Keep your head together call my name out loud soon I'll be knocking upon your door
Oh you just call out my name and you know wherever I am
I'll come running hey baby to see you again
Oh winter spring summer or fall all you've have to do is call and I'll be there
Oh ain't it good to know that you've got a friend people can be so cold
They'll hurt you desert you they'll take your soul if you let them
Oh but don't you let them
You just call out my name...
