Verse
     C                 G
In times when you're troubled
 C                        F
Seems more than you can afford
         G                  C
And you feel, you feel you need a friend
 F                    G
Someone to share the load

Chorus
               Am    G     F
And when your skies grow cloudy
               Am          G            F
I want you to know got a friend that's true
               C                    F
Just like a shelter, in a time of storm
               C                       F
I'll see you through, that's what I'll do

Verse
            C            G
When your dreams are scattered
 C                        F
Just like the wind blown sand
         G                  C
And you feel, you feel you need a friend
 F                             G
I'll be there, reach out your hand

Chorus
             Am   G       F
And when the tempest is raging
               Am          G            F
I want you to know got a friend that's true
               C                    F
Just like a shelter, in a time of storm

I'll see you through, that's what I'll do

 C                         G
I'll see you through your bad times

I'll see you through your fears
 G                         C
I'll see you through your hang ups
 F                        G
Honey I'll dry all your tears

Chorus
             Am   G       F
And when the tempest is raging

I want you to know got a friend that's true
               C                    F
Just like a shelter, in a time of storm
               C                       F
I'll see you through, that's what I'll do

Bridge
 C                       F
I will see you through, I will see you through
 C                       F
I will see you through, I will see you through, Let me hear the choir
 C                       F
(I will see you through, I will see you through) Oh yeah
 C                       F
(I will see you through, I will see you through)
                  C                      F
When my load got heavy, did you see me through?
                  C                                  F                 
When my load got too hard to bear, did you see me through?
                C                       
What would you do? (I will see you through)
                F                       
What would you do? (I will see you through)                          
                C                       
What would you do? (I will see you through)   
                F                       
What would you do? (I will see you through) 
                               C   
Let me hear you break it down now 
                         F    
Let me hear you bring it up
                          C
Let me hear you take it higher

If you're living on the dole and there's no sugar in your bowl
          C                          F
All you need to do is give a little knock 
          C                             F
