LYRICS:
X
When the night has come, and the land is dark


And the moon is the only light we'll see

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


Just as long as you stand, stand by me

refrain:

X
So darlin', darlin', stand by me


Oh, stand by me


Oh, stand, stand by me, stand by me

X
If the sky we look upon, should trumble and fall


Or the mountain should crumble to the sea

X
I won't cry, I won't cry


No I won't shed a tear


Just as long as you stand, stand by me.

Refrain:

X
Whenever you're in trouble won't you stand by me


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

repeat from whenever you're...
And fade

TIP: Buy the whole song, listen to it, and play to it. It is a real novice song, but
for the ultimate beginners, it is a good learning and practice song, as it is easy
played but still has some tempo and finger—shifting.
