(音樂:Carole King - You’ve Got a Friend )

 

這首歌是 Carole King在1971年寫的,
在台灣疫情還沒完全解除的時候,
人的接觸和友誼的溫暖最是可貴。
僅以這首歌獻給台灣的網友們。

寫這首歌的 Carole King
與男歌星 James Taylor 是兄妹之交的好朋友,
稍早,James Taylor曾經患了憂鬱癥,
在他的一首歌 "Fire and Rain"裡有這麼一句話:
"Ive seen lonely times when I could not find a friend."
做妹妹的 Carole King 聽了有感而發,
順手就很快地寫出了這一首歌,
關懷之意流露無遺。

這首歌在1971年由兩人個別灌唱,
Carole King 的版本收在她的唱片“Tapestry” 裡:
James Taylor的則以單張發行,
在排行榜上爬上王座。
這年的艾美獎,兩人都以這首歌得獎,
Taylord得了最佳男音表演獎,
King則得了年度歌曲獎。

Youve Got a Friend

When youre down and troubled
And you need some lovin care
And nothin, nothin is goin right
Close your eyes and think of me
And soon I will be there
To brighten up even your darkest night

You just call out my name
And you know, wherever I am
Ill come runnin
To see you again
Winter, spring, summer or fall
All you have to do is call
And Ill be there
Youve got a friend

If the sky above you
Grows dark and full of clouds
And that old north wind begins to blow
Keep your head together
And call my name out loud
Soon youll hear me knockin at your door

You just call out my name
And you know, wherever I am
Ill come runnin, runnin, yeah, yeah
To see you again
Winter, spring, summer or fall
All you have to do is call
And Ill be there, yes, I will

Now, aint it good to know that youve got a friend
When people can be so cold?
Theyll hurt you, yes, and desert you
And take your soul if you let them
Oh, but dont you let them

You just call out my name
And you know, wherever I am
Ill come runnin, runnin, yeah, yeah
To see you again
Winter, spring, summer or fall
All you have to do is call
And Ill be there, yes, I will
Youve got a friend
Youve got a friend

Aint it good to know youve got a friend
Aint it good to know, aint it good to know
Aint it good to know
Youve got a friend

Oh, yeah, now, youve got a friend
Yeah baby, youve got a friend
Oh, yeah, youve got a friend
