Tune: "Give Me That Old Time Religion"

Verse 1 :
Da-vid had a good frie-nd,
Jon-a-than had a good frie-nd
They were best of frie-nds
And they would al-ways be

King Saul tried to kill Da-vid
King Saul tried to kill Da-vid
He was jea-lous of Da-vid
As ev-ry-one could see.

Verse 2: :
Jon-a-than warned his friend Da-vid,
Jon-a-than warned his friend Da-vid,
Met him out in the fie-ld
A sig-nal he would give .

If I say find the ar-rows,
They are near you my ser-vant,
You will know it is safe now,
And you will sure-ly live.

Verse 3:
If I say they are far-ther
If I say they are far-ther
You will know there is dan-ger
And you must run and hide.

He brought with him a ser-vant
He brought with him a ser-vant
Shot the ar-rows be-yond him,
And then the friends both cried.

Verse 4:
We will al-ways be friends
We will al-ways be friends
Frie-nds care for each o-ther
For that's what good friends do.

Da-vid hid in a cave,
Da-vid hid in a cave,
He was safe from the ki-ng
For God was with him too.
