Intro: G  B7  E  G7  C  F  C

G                  D   
Another red letter day,
       E                        B                G
So the pound has dropped and the children are creating,
C                  A  
The other half ran away,
       D          C             G            D
Taking all the cash and leaving you with the lumber,
G                 B
Got a pain in the chest,
           E                         G7
Doctors on strike what you need is a rest.
         A    A                    D
It's not easy love, but you've got friends you can trust,


C               A   
Friends will be friends,
               G                        E  
When you're in need of love they give you care and attention,
D               B  #
Friends will be friends,
            E                         E   
When you're through with life and all hope is lost,
     G                 A       C              
Hold out your hand cos friends will be friends
D     G        B7
Right till the end.


G                    D   
Now it's a beautiful day,
    E                   B                G
The postman delivered a letter from your lover,
C                 A  
Only a phone call away,
             D         C            G              D
You tried to track him down but somebody stole his number,
G              B
As a matter of fact,
               E                                G7
You're getting used to life without him in your way.
        A    A                D
It's so easy now, cos you got friends you can trust,


C               A   
Friends will be friends,
               G                        E  
When you're in need of love they give you care and attention,
D               B  #
Friends will be friends,
            E                         E   
When you're through with life and all hope is lost,
     G                 A                      
Hold out your hand cos friends will be friends
D
Right till the end.


-same as the other Chorus-

It's so easy now, cos you got friends you can trust,
Friends will be friends,
When you're in need of love they give you care and attention,
Friends will be friends,
When you're through with life and all hope is lost,
Hold out your hand cos friends will be friends right till the end.

Friends will be friends,
When you're in need of love they give you care and attention,
Friends will be friends,
When you're through with life and all hope is lost,
Hold out your hand cos right till the end  
Friends will be friends.

  1. If you’re struggling with E change it for Em7 it sounds right

  2. A7 sounds better in my opinion.
