If you need a place to sleep
For a day or for a week
You can stay at my house
You take the bed; I’ll take the couch

And if you need something to eat
Something healthy, something sweet
I’ll put on a pot of tea and start cooking right now
Right now

And if you need someone to bail you out of jail
Or come and pick you up at the hospital again
Or to drive to California so that they can bring you home
Just call me up, twenty-four hours
I will be there my friend

Because you can count on me
You can count on me, you can count on me
You can count on me, you can count on me
You can count on me, you can count on me
You can count on me, you can count on me

If you need someone to pay your rent or watch your kids
Or come over to your house when you’re on tour and feed your pets
Or to drive you to the airport ‘cause you’re freaking out again
This town has broken your heart; you won’t be coming back in

Well, I can keep a secret; no I won’t tell a soul
I will take you anywhere that you need to go
Yes, I can keep a secret; no I won’t tell a soul
I will take you anywhere that you want to to go

You know you can count on me
You can count on me, you can count on me
You can count on me, you can count on me
You can count on me, you can count on me
You can count on me, you can count on me

    I had a 'friend' do a cover of this than dedicate it to me. One night in a laps of better judgement I got drunk and he took advatage of me.

    Needless to say, that stint ruined this song, and it's portrial of a perfect friend for me.
