[Verse 1]
D            A             Bm
I was there that night in Bethlehem
         G                                           A 
And when Neil and the boys came to the moon in that tin can
   D           A               Bm
At Gettysburg, Omaha beach, in Vietnam
         G                       A
I heard every soldier's cry and mom's prayer
        D    G D
I was there

D            A                      Bm
I was there when you took your first breath
             G                                          A           
And when you lit that stolen Lucky Strike and like the choke to death
D             A                      Bm
When you were waist deep in Carter's Creek
              G                                               A
And preacher John dunked you down in the water and raised you up for air
       D
I was there

[Chorus]
Bm
I'm always around
      A
I was then and I am now
    D                          G
And I'll be here when tomorrow comes
       Bm
When a road comes to an end
    A
I'm where you start again
    D                         G
I'm never farther than a word away
        Bm                 A
You've always got a friend

[Verse 2]
          D       A                      Bm
When your grandma passed, I was in that house
               G                                        A
And when your grandpa ran down the street to go to show her around
         D    D   A   A   G    G   A
I was there

[Chorus]
Bm
I'm always around
      A
I was then and I am now
    D                          G
And I'll be here when tomorrow comes
       Bm
When a road comes to an end
    A
I'm where you start again
    D                         G
I'm never farther than a word away
        Bm                 A
You've always got a friend

[Verse 3]
D           A                Bm
I was there last night on highway 9
            G                                           A
When you answered the phone and ran right through that stop sign
       D                     A                 Bm
I was in the cab, in that bigger rig, in that trucker's ear
           G                               A
They then swerve to the right and miss you by a hair
        D
I was there

[Tag]
            Bm               A                    G             A
If you're feeling alone look up on the One who answers prayers
                D       A    G    A   D
And I'm always there
