Fairweather Friends

This song is by Don Williams and appears on the album Especially For You (1981).

Fairweather friends, fairweather sailors,
Will leave you stranded on life's shore.
One good friend who truly loves you
Is worth the pain your heart endures.

We never know which way the wind will blow,
Nor when or where the next turmoil will be.
But he's a solid rock when troubles grow,
And he's holding out a saving hand for me.

Fairweather friends, fairweather sailors,
Will leave you stranded on life's shore.
One good friend who truly loves you
Is worth the pain your heart endures.

--- Instrumental ---

He'll be a refuge in the storm;
He'll be a beacon in the night;
In the chilly winds of doubt he'll keep you warm;
When you can't find your way he'll be your light.

Fairweather friends, fairweather sailors,
Will leave you stranded on life's shore.
One good friend who truly loves you
Is worth the pain your heart endures...
