Anybody recall “That’s What Friends Are For” featuring Dionne Warwick, Gladys Knight, Stevie Wonder and Elton John? I don’t know if this recent collaboration between Cracker and Patterson Hood qualifies as the modern day version, but who wouldn’t want to hear those four singin’ this tune.
If a fight breaks out and you’re the cause of it
In some redneck bar where you’ve been talking shit.
I would not forsake you later in that parking lot
’cause that’s the kind of friend that you’ve got.
