STAND BY ME (John Lennon)

           C                      Am
When the night has come and the land is dark
          F           G7              C
And the moon is the only light we'll see
      C                    Am
No,I won't be afraid,no i won't be afraid
          F           G7           C
Just as long as you stand,stand by me

      C                 C              Am
So, darling, darling, stand by me, oh stand by me
   F              G7          C
Oh stand,stand by me,stand by me

       C                              Am
If the sea that we look upon, should tumble and fall
        F                G7            C
Or the mountain should crumble in the sea
        C                    Am
I won't cry,I won't cry,no I won't shed a tear
         F            G7           C
Just as long,as you stand,stand by me
(Repeat * then play **)

G7                                    C
Whenever you're in trouble won't you stand by me
            Am             F
Oh now,now stand by me,oh stand by me
         G7          C
Stand by me,stand by me

Hope it sounds right!

Think it sounds fine as is, except I just use G instead.
