"When you're down and troubled/and you need a helping hand.."
When youre down and troubled
And you need a helping hand
And nothing, whoa nothing is going right.
Close your eyes and think of me
And soon I will be there
To brighten up even your darkest nights.

You just call out my name,
And you know whereever I am
Ill come running, oh yeah baby
To see you again.
Winter, spring, summer, or fall,
All you have to do is call
And Ill be there, yeah, yeah, yeah.
Youve got a friend.

If the sky above you
Should turn dark and full of clouds
And that old north wind should begin to blow
Keep your head together and call my name out loud
And soon I will be knocking upon your door.
You just call out my name and you know where ever I am
Ill come running to see you again.
Winter, spring, summer or fall
All you got to do is call
And Ill be there, yeah, yeah, yeah.

Hey, aint it good to know that youve got a friend?
People can be so cold.
Theyll hurt you and desert you.
Well theyll take your soul if you let them.
Oh yeah, but dont you let them.

You just call out my name and you know wherever I am
Ill come running to see you again.
Oh babe, dont you know that,
Winter spring summer or fall,
Hey now, all youve got to do is call.
Lord, Ill be there, yes I will.
Youve got a friend.
Youve got a friend.
Aint it good to know youve got a friend.
Aint it good to know youve got a friend.
Youve got a friend.

******

Best. Song. About. Friendship. Ever.

:loveya:, JT.

:D :D

12. I don't remember much...it was Sir Morgan's Cove.
I remember him playing a set..and I was intro'd to him outside in the parking lot. I also remember Aerosmith playing there, there were a house band....I thjought they sucked, though.

16. IIRC, they were the house band there.
Really, I didn't think much of them at the time. Taylor was buds with a guy that I knew at Hioly Cross in 1971...actually, we may have seen him at Clark University coffeehouse....all I remember was Taylor being a really laid back dude and we got high outside in the parking lot with him after the show.

When SBJ came out, my friend came into my dorm room and said "remember this guy"? We did, but we were into the Dead and Ian Anderson at the time, so it wasn't a really big deal.
