You’ve Got A Friend James Taylor (#1 in 1971), Roberta Flack and Donny Hathaway (#29 in 1971)

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 whereever I am
    I'll come running oh yeah baby, to see you again.
    Winter spring summer or fall, all you have to do is call
    and I'll be there yeah yeah yeah.
    You've got a friend.

If the sky above 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
and soon I will be knocking upon your door.
Hey, ain't it good to know that you've got a friend?
When people can be so cold.
They'll hurt you and desert you.
Well they'll take your soul if you let them.
Oh yeah, but don't you let them.
You've got a friend.
Ain't it good to know you've got a friend.
Ain't it good to know you've got a friend.
You've got a friend.

James Taylor's version featured Joni Mitchell on backing vocals. He explains in concert that Carole King very generously offered it to him first. Little did he know that he'd be singing it every night for the rest of his life.
