"Need All My Friends" is a song written and performed by southern rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd. The song was recorded in 1968 and released the same year by Shade Tree Records. The song is considered to be the first song the band recorded, with their name spelled as "Lynard Skynard" on the release. The song was never released on a studio album, but it exists as a demo, which was produced in the form of a commercial (stock) copy. According to the Goldmine Price Guide to 45 RPM Records, "approximately 300 copies [were] pressed".


The song features a softer rhythm to later songs and features Ronnie Van Zant singing about how important it is to have friends.
