You've Got A Friend

 (capo 1ST FRET)

               Am      E7             Am     
When you're down and troubled and you need a helping hand,
    Dm          G7               C     E7   Am
and nothing, oh, nothing is going right,
Am                    E7          Am                
close your eyes and think of me and soon I will be there
   Dm         Em                  Dm     G7
to brighten up even your darkest night.

           C                        F   
You just call out my name,  and you know wherever I am,
             C                G7   G
I'll come running to see you again.
C                                  F                   Am
             
Winter, spring, summer, or fall,  all you got to do is call
         F    Em          Dm    G7
and I'll be there,     yeah, yeah, yeah.  
           C
You've got a friend.

Am           E7            Am              
If the sky above you should turn dark and full of clouds,
         Dm        G7                     C    E7    Am
and that old north wind should begin to blow,
Am                 E7     Am                 
keep your head together and call my name out loud.
Dm             Em                Dm      G7
Soon I'll be knocking upon your door.  



REPAEAT CHORUS :

*         Bb                     F  
Hey ain't it good to know that you've got a friend when 
C                           F                    Fm7
people can be so cold.     They'll hurt you and desert you.
              Am7                       D7
Well, they'll take your soul if you let them.
                  G7         
Oh yeah, but don't you let them.

             C                      F             
You just call out my name,  and you know wherever I am,
      C                     G7   G
I'll come running to see you again.

C                                  F       
                Am
Winter, spring, summer, or fall,  all you got to do is call
         F      Em     Dm     G7
and I'll be there, yes I will.
               C       F            C
You've got a friend.  You've got a friend.
F                                   C
Ain't it good to know you've got a friend?
              C                           G
F                                         C    
Ain't it good to know you've got a friend?
F                               C
Oh, yeah, yeah.  You've got a friend.

Nowhere near the original chords. Original sheet music for You've Got A Friend is in Key of A, James Taylor always plays with a CAPO on 2nd fret, not the first. The chords are A , D5, E7sus, D,A, G#m7, C#7 for the intro, then F#m, C#7, F#m, C#7 F#m.. Bm7, Esus7, A for the verse. Don't know the real bridge chords, yet, only have partial sheet music, sorry.

Taylor uses a finger picking style, sometimes strumming the chords.
