A Friend

Now this old life ain’t somethin’ that you live all by yourself
There always comes a time you need a friend
Sometimes this world can get so heavy and the road can get so long
That you need someone to lend a helpin’ hand

Well I learned life the hard way I took all my knocks and lumps
But when I look back down the road at where I’ve been
I can see that all the things that I’ve done in this ol’ life have been more fun
Cause I shared them with someone who was a friend

You’ve got to care about one another be a friend and be a brother
Cause you’re always gonna need someone that you can lean on
You’ve got to help each other out that’s what this life is all about
Cause there ain’t no way that you can make this journey alone

Well I guess that I’m just lucky cause I’ve been there and back
Yes I’ve seen life about every which way you can
But as far as I’m concerned the greatest thing that a man can learn
Is when you’re down it’s great to turn to a friend

Well I guess that I’m just lucky cause I’ve been there and back…
Turn to a friend
