Lyrics and Chords:

Verse:
-----

         C         '            Am          '
When the night has come and the land is dark
        F             G              C      '
And the moon is the only light we'll see
     C         '            Am              '
No I won't be afraid oh I won't be afraid
        F                G           C      '
Just as long as you stand stand by me.  


Chorus
------

C        '      Am            '
Stand by me oh stand by me
   F     G        C           '
Oh stand stand by me stand by me


Verse:
-----

If the sky that we look upon should tumble and fall
Or the mountain should crumble to the sea
I won't cry I won't cry no I won't shed a tear
Just as long as you stand stand by me


Chorus:
------

C        '      Am            '
Stand by me oh stand by me
   F     G        C           '
Oh stand stand by me stand by me

Oh stand stand by me stand by me


Chorus:
------

C        '      Am            '
Stand by me oh stand by me
   F     G        C           '

"Stand by Me" is a song originally performed by American singer-songwriter Ben E. King, written by King, Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller. According to King, the title is derived and was inspired by a spiritual composition by Sam Cooke called "Stand by Me Father" (although Mike Stoller has stated differently).

In 2015, King's original version was inducted into the National Recording Registry by the Library of Congress for being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant", just under five weeks before his death. Later in the year the 2015 line up of the Drifters recorded it in tribute to him.
