[Intro]

Em

[Verse 1]

Em
Old friends are cold and warm like oceans
               G/D
And they turn when there’s a season
                 C
And they learn when there’s a reason
         Em
To be near


[Verse 2]

Em
And I could hardly stand the weather
                 G/D
If I thought that I would never
                C
Have the comfort of my brothers 
              Em
Through the years


[Chorus]               
                          D
And if you lose your money well honey you know
           Em
It’s the least of what you have
    D
So believe in me you can take it or leave
                 C
But you’ll never lose a friend
          B7                 Em
You’ll never lose a friend
 


[Verse 3]

Em
When you feel the fear arising
              G/D
And the spirit in you hiding
                     C
And there’s nobody there to care for you
                  Em
When you’re down


[Verse 4]

Em
Heaven knows it’s just the weight of the load
              G/D
And the changes in the way of the road
                   C
So believe and what you need
                 Em
Will come around



[Chorus]
                          D
And if you lose your money well honey you know
           Em
It’s the least of what you have
    D
So believe in me you can take it or leave
                 C
But you’ll never lose a friend
          B7                 Em
You’ll never lose a friend

[Verse 5]

Em
Old friends are cold and warm like oceans
               G/D
And they turn when there’s a season
                 C
And they learn when there’s a reason
         Em
To be near


[Verse 6]

And I could hardly stand the weather
                 G/D
If I thought that I would never
                C
Have the comfort of my brothers 
              Em
Through the years


[Chorus]
                          D
And if you lose your money well honey you know
           Em
It’s the least of what you have
    D
So believe in me you can take it or leave
                 C
But you’ll never lose a friend
          B7                 Em
You’ll never lose a friend

Em
