“Friendship” Lyrics 

Said what’s wrong my old time friend
Something’s bothering you
Tell me what the problem is
I’ll see what I can do
There are times we disagree
We agree more than we don’t
We won’t always see eye to eye
But we will more than we won’t
We got friendship
The kind that lasts a lifetime
Through all the hardship, you know you’re a friend of mine
Yeah we got friendship
The kind that lasts a lifetime
Through all the hardship, you know you’re a friend of mine
If you’re on the street I’ll take your hand
If you’re hungry I’ll give you food
If it’s money you need, I got some saved
If you’re sick I’ll visit you
I been where you are right now
Your son been through it all
I’ll lean on you, you can lean on me
I’m never gonna let you fall
‘Cause we got friendship
The kind that lasts a lifetime
Through all the hardship, you know you’re a friend of mine
Yeah we got friendship
The kind that lasts a lifetime
Through all the hardship, you know you’re a friend of mine
Talk to me old pal of mine
If you feel you can’t go on
Don’t you sweat, it ain’t over yet
This bond we share is strong
Now your welfare is my concern
You weigh less than you think
I’ll carry you through the sink sands
See if I let you sink
‘Cause we got friendship
The kind that lasts a lifetime
Through all the hardship, you know you’re a friend of mine
Yeah we got friendship
The kind that lasts a lifetime
Through all the hardship, you know you’re a friend of mine
Yeah we got friendship
The kind that lasts a lifetime
Through all the hardship, you know you’re a friend of mine
Through all the hardship, you know you’re a friend of mine

Now, listen to The Staple Singers’ well-known song “I’ll Take You There.”
