Song-ography – Bill Withers’ “Lean on Me”

“Lean On Me” by Bill Withers

“Sometimes in our lives
We all have pain, we all have sorrow
But if we are wise
We know that there’s always tomorrow”

(SuperPizzaBoy, Sweetie, and Yogi horsing around at Orange Beach earlier this summer.)

“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”

Growing up “Lean on Me” was one of those songs always in the background and wore very well. I never got tired of it but I never thought much about it either. It was just a great basic song that was part of my life.

    The song sure brings back memories. Love that “portrait” at the beach! 😉 I have a silly picture similar to that of my son the Georgetown Lawyer. Some years ago we blew it up poster size and displayed it when he came home for a birthday party. I don’t think he has ever forgiven me. *chuckles*

    I just heard John Lennon do this song on the radio on the way home from the farmer’s market. I love your silly picture. It made me smile.

    Glad to see you joined in.
    Your family beach shot is so fun. Good Times & Great Memories are also something we can “lean on” when times get us down.

    Now THAT is a three-some that looks like a fun group to “lean” together with! You actuallly put a smile on my face just looking at it. You can tell you have each other thru thick and thin. Thanks for joining in on Song-ography and “Lean on Me”. Hope to see you again next Sunday 🙂

    I love this shot – having family and silly-fun family, is something we often lean on without much thought. This song has stood the test of time for sure.

    The family photo is great!

    I remember that song always giving us a break from the hard-on-your-ears junk at high school dances way, way back in the day. Thanks for the reminder.
