Lyrics

Ad lib over intro- Find out who you your friends are

Verse- (Hey,) Run your car off the side of the road
Get stuck in a ditch way out in the middle of nowhere
Man, I’ve been there
Verse- Now get yourself in a bind, lose the shirt off your back,
Need a floor, need a couch, need a bus fare
Man, I’ve been there

Lift- Now this is where the rubber meets the road
This is where the cream is gonna rise
This is what you really didn’t know
This is why the truth won’t lie

Chorus- You find out who your friends are
Somebody’s gonna drop everything
Run out and crank up their car
Hit that gas, get there fast
Never stop to think what’s in it for me
Or it’s way too far
They just show on up
With their big old hearts
You find out who your friends are

Verse- (Yeah,) Now eve’rybody wanna slap your back,
Wanna shake your hand, when you’re up on top of this mountain
Man, I’ve been there
Verse- Now let one of them rocks give away
And you slide back down, look up and see who’s around then
Man, I’ve been there

Lift- Now this where the road comes to an end
This is where the bandwagons stop
This is one of those times when
A lot of folks give up

Repeat Chorus (find out, find out)

Bridge- ‘Cause when the water’s high,
When the weather’s not so fair
When the well runs dry
Who’s gonna be there?

Repeat Chorus w/o resolve and roll over to fade
