C                F                  C                 Em G
Sometimes in our lives, we all have pain, we all have sorrow
C             F                  C                G  C
But if we are wise, we know that there's always tomorrow

         C                 F                       C                     Em    G
Lean on me when you're not strong and I'll be your friend, I'll help you carry on
C             F                     C                G    C
For it won't be long 'til I'm gonna need somebody to lean on

C                   F               C                  Em  G
Please swallow your pride if I have things you need to borrow
C              F                  C                    G   C
For no one can fill those of your needs that you won't let show

         C
You just call on me, brother, when you need a hand
                        G    C
We all need somebody to lean on
       C
I just might have a problem that you'll understand
                        G    C
We all need somebody to lean on

         C                 F                       C                     Em    G
Lean on me when you're not strong and I'll be your friend, I'll help you carry on
C             F                     C                G    C
For it won't be long 'til I'm gonna need somebody to lean on

         C
You just call on me, brother, when you need a hand
                        G    C
We all need somebody to lean on
       C
I just might have a problem that you'll understand
                        G    C
We all need somebody to lean on

C             F                C                    Em  G
If there is a load you have to bear, that you can't carry
C                F                     C                 G    C
I'm right up the road, I'll share your load, if you just call me

 C
(Call me) If you need a friend
(Call me) Call me uh-huh
(Call me) If you need a friend
(Call me) If you ever need a friend
(Call me) Call me
(Call me) Call me
(Call me) Call me
(Call me) Call me
(Call me) If you need a friend
(Call me) Call me
(Call me) Call me
(Call me) Call me
(Call me) Call me
(Call me)
