Stand By Me

by: Ben E. King

((INTRO:)) [A-F#m-D-E-A-]

[          A]
When the night has come 
[F#m]
  and the land is dark
[         D           E]
And the moon is the only
[               A] 
  light we'll see
[       A]
No, I won't be afraid
[       F#m]
Oh, I won't be afraid
[         D            E]
Just as long as you stand
[           A]
  stand by me


((CHORUS:))
  (So/And) darlin, darlin, 
[   A]
  stand by me
[      F#m]
  Hoh, stand by me
]      D]
  (Oh stand/ Woh, stand by)
[ E              A]
   stand by me,  stand by me

[        A]
If the sky that we look upon
[F#m]
Should tumble and fall
[          D              E]
Or the mountain should crumble
[         A]
  to the sea
[        A]
I won't cry, I won't cry
[      F#m]
No, I won't shed a tear
[         D            E]
Just as long as you stand,
[          A]
  stand by me

(Repeat CHORUS)

((AD LIB:)) [A-F#m-D-E-A- (2x)]

(Repeat CHORUS)
[    (A)]
 Whenever you're in trouble.

(Repeat CHORUS while fading)
