                 G               G             Em                            Em
When the night        has come                         and the land is da-   rk
               C               D                G                            G
And the mo-    on is the on-   ly light we'll   see                         
               G                G               Em              Em
No I wo-       n't be af-       raid, no I      won't be af-    raid           
               C                 D               G               G
Just as        long as you st-   and, stand by   me       .      So darlin', darlin'


[Chorus 1]

G             G             Em         Em                              
stand by me,       oh now   stand by   me,      

C             D             G          G
stand by me,     stand by        me.

If the sky       that we look up-   on                      should tumble and   fall
                 C                  D                 G                         G
And the mount-   ain      should    crumble to the    sea                      
                 G                  G                 Em             Em  
I won't cry,         I won't cry,       no I          won't shed a   tear
                 C                  D                 G        G
Just as long        as you stand,       stand by me   me. So   darling, darling


[Chorus 2]

G             G             Em         Em                              
stand by me,       oh now   stand by   me,        
C             D             G          G
stand by me,     stand by        me.

C        D       G       G
G        G       Em      Em
C        D       G       G

stand by me,       oh now   stand by    me,

If you don't have a capo, you can transpose two semitones up. Chords will be A, F#m, D & E.

If you don't have a capo, go get one. They're cheap.
