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
