Lean On Me

Terry Callier

 Fmaj7
You've seen bad times
 CFmaj7
 Your eyes have told me so blue and bad times
 CFmaj7
 You think that I don't know but there'll be glad times
 CFmaj7
 Just you wait and see girl I'll be your sunrise if you
 C
Lean on me
 Fmaj7CFmaj7
Now I imagine  I could comfort you I'd forgotten
 C
The things that you'd  been through
 Fmaj7C
But here's one thing on which we can agree
 Fmaj7C
When you're ready darling you can lean on me

(strum chorus) C G
And the love I bring will grow into a lasting thing
 FC
It'll put your heart on wings and set you free
 CF
And as you rise high into the clearing sky
 F
Maybe you will realize you can always
 CG
Lean on me said lean on me baby lean on me
 FC
Said just lean on me you can lean on me

(verse2) Fmaj7 C
All your heartaches are hidden deep inside
 Fmaj7C
So there's no  telling how many tears you've cried
 Fmaj7C
And like the river told the weeping willow tree
 Fmaj7C
I can hold your teardrops child just lean on me

(chorus2) C
Sweet love and care and girl I'll find the strength
 GF
I swear and when you need me I'll be there
 C
If you let it be
 CG
Till my time is done till the longest race is run
 F
Right on till the kingdom comes you can always
 CCG
Lean on me—said lean on me baby lean on me
 F
Yeah you can lean on me
 C
You know that you can lean on me

This is a rather raw demo version that I find much more compelling than most
of the studio releases of the song. It's just Terry and his guitar. Same
arrangement, slightly different lyrics.

As always, corrections, comments welcome. All my own work.
