You’ve Got a Friend Lyrics. When you're 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 wherever I am I'll come running oh yeah baby To see you again Winter, spring, summer, or fall All you got to do is call And I'll be there, yeah, yeah yeah You've got a friend  . Both Carole and James' versions of the song were recorded in 1971. At the time, Carole’s album was recorded in an overlap with James' album. In an interview in 1972, Carole said that she didn’t write it with James or anybody, really specifically in mind.

King's musical response: "you've got a friend right here. Taylor heard this song for the first time in November 1970, when he played a week of shows at The Troubadour in Los Angeles. By this time, his album Sweet Baby James had taken off, and Taylor was drawing large crowds. He asked his good friend Carole King to be his opening act, and King grudgingly accepted - she wasn't used to playing her own songs live and was very nervous

You just call out my name, and you know wherever I am I'll come running, oh yeah baby, to see you again Winter, spring, summer, or fall All you got to do is call and I'll be there, yeah, yeah, yeah You've got a friend. If the sk. bove 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 now Soon I'll be knocking upon your door
