The chord progression to this song is:

        C, F, G

 

C††††††† F†††††††† G

When I was a young boy

†† C††††††††††††††††† F†††††††††††††††† G

I never did the things I was told no, no, no, no, no

C†††††††††††††††††††††††††††† F††††††††††††††††† G

Now that Iím a little older and Iím livin' on the road

†††††††††††† C††††††† FG

Yes, Iím crazy

††††††††††††††††††† C††††††††††† F†††††††† G

You gotta be crazy to live this way

††††††††††††††††††† C††††††††††† F††††††††††††† G

You gotta be crazy to live day by day

††††††††††††††††††† C†††††† FG

Hey, hey Iím crazy

 

C††††††††††††††††††††††† F†††††††††† G

I used to be into material possession

††††††††† C†††††††††††††††† F†††††††††† G

'Till I fell into this spiritual recession

C†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† F††††††††††††††††††††† G

Iíve got one thing left to give away thatís plain to see

C†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† F†††††††††††††† G

That thing is that you can lean on me

†††††††††††††††††††††††† CFG

You can lean on me

 

†††††††† C††††††††††††††††† F†††††††††††††† G

When none of your friends are around

†††††††††††† C†††††††† F†††††† G

Just as long as Iím in town

††††††††††††††††††††††† CFG

You can lean on me

 

C††††††††††††††††† F†††††††††††††† G

You gotta be kind to the hobo (and the wino)

C†††††††††††††††††††† F††††††††††††††† G

'Cuz you might be one someday hey, hey, hey

C†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† F††††††††††††††† G

When youíre a deadbeat and livin' on the street

††††††††††††††††††† C†††††††††††††††††††††††††† F†††††††††††††††††† G

Youíre gonna wish that you could hear someone say

ďYou can lean on meĒ

††††††††††††††††††††††† CFG

C †††††††††††††††F††††††††††††††† G

When your dickís in the dirt

†††††††††††† C†††††††††††††††††††††††† F††††††††††††††† G

And you canít seem to find your place

C†††††††† F†††††††††††††† G

Iím as strong as a mountain

C††††††††††† F††††††††††††† G

Givin' up love like a fountain

You can lean on me

C††††††††††††††††††† F†††††††††††††††††††††† G

If you need a shoulder you can cry on

C††††††††††††††††††† F†††††††††††††† G

If you need a lap you can die on

Trouble always comes in bunches

†††††† C††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† F†††††††††††††††††††††††††††† G

But donít you forget, but donít forget, donít forget how to smile

You gotta run the last mile
