Stand by me – Ben E. King (1961)

1) When the night has come
and the land is dark
and the moon
is the only light we’ll see.
No I won’t be afraid.
Oh, I won’t be afraid,
just as long as you stand,
stand by me.

Refrein:
So darling, darling, stand by me,
oh stand by me! Oh stand,
stand by me! Stand by me!

2) 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.

Refrein:
So darling, darling, stand by me,
oh stand by me! Oh stand,
stand by me! Stand by me!

Whenever you’re in trouble
won’t you stand by me?
Oh stand by me,
oh won’t you stand now,
stand by me,
stand by me.
