Don Williams’ You’re My Best Friend: Song From A Husband To A Wife


I supposed you have, by now, heard sentimental words from the people around you especially from your husband or your wife. But I guess, one of the sweetest things would be your partner treating and sincerely telling “You’re My Best Friend”.

The song is simply implying trust and faith to your significant other and a message of loyalty from a husband to his loving wife.

The Story…

The story is not a typical friend or best of friends of individuals. It is a storytelling between a husband and a wife. Indeed, a relationship of a husband and a wife loving each other so deeply. It can be realized on the lyrics, a spouse should be a reason to go on, bread when hungry, shelter from troubled winds, the hope, and inspiration, to make each other strong when both are tired and weak, and an anchor in life’s ocean. With this, their love will be blossomed and will be preserved as best friends.

The Song…

“You’re My Best Friend” is one of the signature songs of the “Gentle Giant”: Don Williams. An anthem that was released in 1975 but will always be loved by millions of people around the globe. The song was penned by the one and only Wayland Holyfield. A very first song that reached No.1 for Holyfield.

In fact, the song was Williams’ second No. 1 hit on the Billboard Hot Country Singles. It has reached top 40 in the United Kingdom as well.

The Lyrics…

You placed gold on my finger
Brought love like I’ve never known
You gave life to our children
And to me a reason to go on

You’re my…

 bread when I’m hungry
  shelter from troubled winds
  anchor in life’s ocean
But most of all you’re my best friend

When I need hope and inspiration
You’re always strong when I’m tired and weak
I could search this whole world over
You’d still be everything that I need


One of the best covers of the song was from the Southern Gospel Singers, husband and wife, Jeff and Sheri Easter. Both, sang “You’re My Best Friend” as their devotion to each other. They are both an inspiration to many for their sturdy relationship with the boundless foundation of the lord.

Above all, Don Williams’ “You’re My Best Friend” will remind every husband and wife in the world to love each and treat each other as best friends.
