Lean on Me

Rise Up Singing Project
On the dock at camp with Joy.
Rise Up Singing chapter: Friendship, p.66
By Bill Withers
The theme to this is so well known that it sounds a little weird to play it with out picking it out on the guitar. Rise Up Singing has the walk the bassline up and down in the appropriate places thing. I can show you how to do that if you want to know and can't get it yourself. On the dock, though, it wasn't happening.

D - G - / D - A - - - / D - G - / D - - - A - D -
Sometimes in our lives
We all have pain, we all have sorrow
But, if we are wise
We know that there's always tomorrow

Lean on me, when you're not strong
And I'll be your friend, I'll help you carry on
For it won't be long
Till I'm gonna need somebody to lean on

Please swallow your pride
If I have things you need to borrow
For no one can fill
Those of your needs that you won't let show

D - - - - - - - / - - - - A - D - ://
You just call on me brother when you need a hand
We all need somebody to lean on
I just might have a problem that you'll understand
We all need somebody to lean on

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