I was there that night in Bethlehem
And when Neil and the boys came to the moon in that tin can
At Gettysburg, Omaha Beach, in Vietnam
I heard every soldier's cry and every mama's prayer
I was there

I was there when you took your first breath
And when you let that stolen lucky strike
And locked a choke to death
When you were waist deep in Carter's Creek
And Preacher John dunked you down in the water
And raised you up for air
I was there

I'm always around, I was then and I am now
And I'll be here when tomorrow comes
When a road comes to an end
I'm where you start again
I'm never farther than a word away
You've always got a friend

When your grandma passed, I was in that house
And when your grandpa ran down the streets of gold
To show her around
I was there

I'm always around, I was then and I am now
And I'll be here when tomorrow comes
When a road comes to an end
I'm where you start again
I'm never farther than a word away
You've always got a friend

I was there last night on Highway Nine
When you answered the phone and ran right through that stop sign
I was in the cab of that bigger rig and that trucker's ear
Made him swerve to the right and miss you by a hair
I was there

If you're feeling alone, look up
I'm the one who answers prayers
And I'm always there
