STAND BY ME    (intro - Lennon) (Listen to midi)

 

                       G                    Em

1. When the night has come,     and the land is dark,

                     C              D                     G

    and the moon is the only light we'll see.

                                              Em

    No, I won't be afraid, no, I won't be afraid,

                 C                  D                      G

    just as long as you stand, stand by me.

 

                                  G                        Em

So, darling, darling, stand by me, oh, stand by me.

         C      D                       G

Oh, stand,     stand by me,     stand by me.

 

               G                              Em

2. If the sky that we look upon      should tumble and fall,

                  C                        D                   G

    or the mountain should crumble to the sea.

                                                 Em

    I won't cry, I won't cry, no, I won't shed a tear,

                C                  D                     G

   just as long as you stand, stand by me.
