Lean on Me  Terry Callier

Lean On Me (demo version from "First Light")
Fmaj7 C (x3) (finger pick or strum)
(verse 1) (finger pick or strum verses)
You've seen [Fmaj7]bad times
[C]Your eyes have told me so blue and [Fmaj7]bad times
[C]You think that I don't know but there'll be [Fmaj7]glad times
[C]Just you wait and see girl I'll [Fmaj7]be your sunrise if you
Lean on [C]me
Now I i[Fmaj7]magine [C]I could comfort you I'd for[Fmaj7]gotten
The t[C]hings that you'd been through
But here's [Fmaj7]one thing on w[C]hich we can agree
When you're [Fmaj7]ready darling you can lean on [C]me
(strum chorus) C G
And the love I bring will grow into a lasting thing
It'll put your heart on wi[F]ngs and set you f[C]ree
And as you [C]rise high into the clearing [F]sky
Maybe you will real[F]ize you can always
Lean on [C]me said lean on me baby lean on [G]me
Said just lean on [F]me you can lean on [C]me
(verse2) Fmaj7 C
All your heartaches are hidden deep inside
So there's no[Fmaj7] telling how m[C]any tears you've cried
And like the [Fmaj7]river told the wee[C]ping willow tree
I can [Fmaj7]hold your teardrops child just lean on [C]me
(chorus2) C
Sweet love and care and girl I'll find the strength
I s[G]wear and when you need me I'll be th[F]ere
If you let it [C]be
Till my time is d[C]one till the longest race is r[G]un
Right on till the kingdom c[F]omes you can always
Lean on [C]me?said lean on [C]me baby lean on [G]me
Yeah you can lean on [F]me
You know that you can lean on [C]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.
