You've Got a Friend

My birthday was in March, but what I wanted as a gift were tickets to this concert.
Friday night I had the pleasure of enjoying the music of James Taylor and Carole King's - Troubadour Reunion Concert.
I had fun taking pictures too and thought this one turned out pretty good.
It was so fun to watch them as they shared song after song and know they
have a special friendship.

You've Got a Friend

When your down and troubled
And you need a helping hand
And nothing, whoa nothing is going right.
Close your eyes and think of me
And soon I will be there
To brighten up even your darkest nights.
You just call out my name,
And you know where ever I am
I'll come running, oh yeah baby
To see you again.
Winter, spring , summer, or fall,
All you have to do is call
And I'll be there, yeah, yeah, yeah.
You've got a friend.
If the sky above you
Should turn dark and full of clouds
And that old north wind should begin to blow
Keep your head together and call my name out loud
And soon I will be knocking upon your door.
You just call out my name and you know where ever I am
I'll come running to see you again.
Winter, Spring, summer or fall
All you got to do is call
And I'll be there, yeah, yeah, yeah.
Hey, ain't it good to know that you've got a friend?
People can be so cold.
They'll hurt you and desert you.
Well they'll take your soul if you let them.
Oh yeah, but don't you let them.
You just call out my name and you know wherever I am
I'll come running to see you again.
Oh babe, don't you know that,
Winter Spring summer or fall,
Hey now, all you've got to do is call.
Lord, I'll be there, yes I will.
You've got a friend.
You've got a friend.
Ain't it good to know you've got a friend.
Ain't it good to know you've got a friend.
You've got a friend.

Fabulous photo, Marilyn!! It certainly captures the ambiance of this type of venue. Wow, you must have had great seats. And, Happy Birthday, again! Why shouldn't a birthday last all year????!!!!

Love Carole King and James Taylor.
I will be checking to see if there are any concert dates near me. Saw this concert tour announced a while back so thanks for the memory jolt and reminder about this great duo touring the country.

Your must have had a great time and are probably still humming a few of your favorite tunes.
