EVERYBODY (John Prine) John Prine - 1972 While out sailing on the ocean, while out sailing on the sea Bumped into the Savior, He said, "Pardon me" I said, "Jesus, you look tired", He said, "Jesus, so do you Won't ya sit down, son, 'cause I got some fat to chew" See everybody needs somebody that they can talk to Someone to open up their ears and let that trouble through Now you don't have to sympathize or care what they may do But everybody needs somebody that they can talk to Well, He spoke to me of morality, starvation, pain and sin Matter of fact the whole dang time I only got a few words in But I won't squawk, let Him talk, hell it's been a long long time And any friend that's been turned down is bound to be a friend of mine 'Cause everybody needs somebody that they can talk to Someone to open up their ears and let that trouble through Now you don't have to sympathize or care what they may do But everybody needs somebody that they can talk to Pick it! (Instrumental Break) Now we sat there for an hour or two, just eatin' that gospel pie When around the bend come a terrible wind and lightnin' lit the sky He said, "So long, son, I gotta run, I appreciate ya listenin' to me" And I believe I heard Him sing these words as He skipped out across the sea Hey, everybody needs somebody that they can talk to Someone to open up their ears and let that trouble through Now you don't have to sympathize or care what they may do But everybody needs somebody that they can talk to Everybody needs somebody that they can talk to (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - May 2013)
