Lyrics

Some – times in our lives – we all have pain – we all have sorrow
But – if we are wise – we know that there’s – always tomorrow

Chorus:
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, ’til I’m gonna need somebody to lean on

Chorus

Please – swallow your pride – if I have faith – you need to borrow
For – no one can fill – those of your needs – that you won’t let show

Chorus

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

Chorus

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

Chorus

Call me…
If you need a friend…
