Chorus:

It's a [G]good thing,
it's a [D]good thing,
to have [C]friends,
who make your [G]heart [D]sing.
It's a [G]good thing,
it's a [D]good thing,
to have [C]friends,
who make your [G]hea[D]-rt [C]si[G]ng.

Who lift you [G]up by the scruff,
and aren't a[D]fraid to call your bluff.
Who've got your [C]back,
who've got your front
who've got your [G]nu-u-um[D]ber.

Who've got the [G]ticket
hit the wicket
knock the [D]ball right out of the park.
Who are [C]actually always
on your side,
your [G]real
[D]real home [C]team.

Chorus:


They can ca[G]jole they can lecture
or be like a [D]living mirror,
showing re[C]flections of things in you that you [G]really ought'a [D]see.

Who help you [G]laugh instead of cry, and not [D]get identified.
I'm not these [C]thoughts or these emotions, [G]I, [D]I am [C]I-[G]-.

Instrumental:


And even [G]if you are alone, or [D]out on your own, there's a [C]place inside where you can find that [G]they still [D]are.

And in the [G]times when you're in need,
their hands [D]come reaching,
cause [C]space and time can't stop what it [G]i-[D]s rea[C]lly-[G]y.

Bridge:

To [Em]be the friend, [D]to the friend that [G]is the friend in [C]everything, [G]oh the friend that [D]is the friend,
is what [C]makes
the [D]heart [G]sing.


Chorus:


Lend a [G]shoulder, lend a hand
listen, [D]talk and understand.
They [C]fan that fire of truth as it [G]grows inside of [D]you.

And with steady-[G]hands they hold on tight, to the [D]you they see inside,
and adding there [C]efforts in with yours help you [G]over[D]come and [C]rise, yeah [G]ri[D]--[C]se.

Instrumental (short): G D C G


Who [G]laugh with a joy that rings
when the [D]winds of change it brings,
an evo[C]lutionary updraft
to your [G]outstretched [D]wings.

And when the [G]sun it breaks on through,
they're standing [D]right there next to you,
and you [C]walk on out together,
in[G]to-[D]ooo the [C]ne-[G]ew.

Bridge:

To [Em]be the friend, [D]to the friend that [G]is the friend in [C]everything, [G]oh the friend that [D]is the friend,
is what [C]makes
the [D]heart [G]sing.
