[Verse 1]

 Em 
Old friends are cold and warm like oceans
                G/D 
And they turn when there’s a season
                  C 
And they learn when there’s a reason
          Em 
To be near


[Verse 2]

 Em 
And I could hardly stand the weather
                  G/D 
If I thought that I would never
                 C 
Have the comfort of my brothers 
               Em 
Through the years


[Chorus]               
                           D 
And if you lose your money well honey you know
            Em 
It’s the least of what you have
     D 
So believe in me you can take it or leave
                  C 
But you’ll never lose a friend
           B7 Em 
You’ll never lose a friend
 


[Verse 3]

 Em 
When you feel the fear arising
               G/D 
And the spirit in you hiding
                      C 
And there’s nobody there to care for you
                   Em 
When you’re down


[Verse 4]

 Em 
Heaven knows it’s just the weight of the load
               G/D 
And the changes in the way of the road
                    C 
So believe and what you need
                  Em 
Will come around



[Chorus]
                           D 
And if you lose your money well honey you know
            Em 
It’s the least of what you have
     D 
So believe in me you can take it or leave
                  C 
But you’ll never lose a friend
           B7 Em 
You’ll never lose a friend


 Em   /  G/D   /  C   /   Em   /
 Em  /  G/D   /  C   /  Em  /
 D  /  Em  /  D   /  C  /  B7  /  Em 


[Verse 5]

 Em 
Old friends are cold and warm like oceans
                G/D 
And they turn when there’s a season
                  C 
And they learn when there’s a reason
          Em 
To be near


[Verse 6]

 Em 
And I could hardly stand the weather
                  G/D 
If I thought that I would never
                 C 
Have the comfort of my brothers 
               Em 
Through the years


[Chorus]
                           D 
And if you lose your money well honey you know
            Em 
It’s the least of what you have
     D 
So believe in me you can take it or leave
                  C 
But you’ll never lose a friend
           B7 Em 
You’ll never lose a friend

 Em
