G  Em  C  D  G


[Verse]
         G
When the night has come
Em
  And the land is dark
        C           D                G
And the moon is the only light we'll see
      G
No, I won't be afraid,
      Em
No, I won't be afraid
        C            D             G
Just as long as you stand, stand by me.

So, darling, darling, stand by me,

Oh, stand by me.

Oh, stand, stand by me,

Stand by me.




[Verse]
        G
If the sky that we look upon
Em
  Should tumble and fall
       C               D              G
Or the mountain should crumble to the sea,
        G
I won't cry, I won't cry,
      Em
No, I won't shed a tear
        C            D             G
Just as long as you stand, stand by me.


[Chorus]
                       G
And darling, darling, stand by me,
     Em
Oh, stand by me.
     C       D              G
Oh, stand now, stand by me,

Stand by me.

Stand by me.

Whenever you're in trouble
           G                Em
won't you stand by me, oh, stand by me
     C              D             G
Oh, stand now, oh, stand, stand by me
