If everyone leaves you out in the cold
and they believe your beauty's passed and time has tarnished your gold,
I will take you in and make you feel at home.
I will hold your hand when everyone else has gone and forgotten you.
Yes, you can come to me, sweet Betsy Blue

Fairweather friends ain't worth much at all,
they'll build you up and praise you 'less you topple and fall,
then they'll deny they ever knew you, cross you off of their lists.
You might walk the floor feeling like you barely exist, but that ain't true
and I will prove it to you, Betsy Blue

Well, I recall a time when I was in your shoes, everybody came a-knocking for me
Now I rarely see 'em since they heard the news that I no longer give out nothing for free

So come to me when the timing is right
and you learn that you are free to do whatever you like.
I know you'll see it someday when your vision ain't skewed
and you're far enough away to have a new point of view and, when you do,
I'll be there for you, sweet Betsy Blue
