Words of a Friend – Sue West

C              D          G
When you can’t see your way,

when you can’t hear a sound

Just close your eyes, lay your head on the ground

You’ll hear me walkin’, all the long lonesome way

You’ll hear me singing, for you, all night and day

Each time I walk down, a dark stormy lane

I try to reach home, but I’ve lost my way

Each time I feel, I’m about at my end

I’m found and I’m saved, by the words of a friend

REF.  Words of a friend, can carry me along

Words of a friend, give me something to hold

Now the words of a friend, can about stop the rain

The words of a friend, are sunshine and gold

Now you are my friend, you know I am yours

We’ll walk through the night, till it rains and it pours

I will carry your load, and I know you’ve got mine

The  words that you tell me, are true and they’re fine.

When life leaves me cold, with the sunset and dark

I can’t see the fire burn, can’t find the spark

It all leaves me lost, in the night and the cold

That’s when I remember, your words of gold

REF.  Words of a friend, can carry me along

Words of a friend, give me something to hold

Now the words of a friend, can about stop the rain

The words of a friend, are sunshine and gold

I'll walk by your side, let me hold your hand

I will lift you high, let me help you stand

There's one thing I know, though my thoughts grow cold

The words of a friend, are sunshine and gold.

I walk through the dark, below the old trees

I fall and I stumble, sometimes to my knees

But I see a light, and a campfire ahead

I know I'll be hearing, the words of a friend.

REF.  Words of a friend, can carry me along

Words of a friend, give me something to hold

Now the words of a friend, can about stop the rain

The words of a friend, are sunshine and gold
