Verse #1:
         A A         A A
When the night has come
F#m F#m               F#m F#m
 And the land is dark
        D D           E E                A A    A A
And the moon is the only light we'll see
      A A        A A           F#m F#m       F#m F#m
No I won't be afraid, oh I won't be afraid
        D D            E E              A A  
Just as long as you stand, stand by me


Chorus:
   A A                  A A       A A       F#m F#m     F#m F#m
So darlin', darlin', stand by me, oh stand by me 
    D D    E E           A A             A A
oh stand, stand by me, stand by me


Verse #2:
        A A                A A
If the sky that we look upon
F#m F#m                F#m F#m
 Should tumble and fall
        D D                E E              A A    A A
And the mountains should crumble to the sea
        A A            A A         F#m F#m          F#m F#m
I won't cry, I won't cry, no I won't shed a tear
        D D            E E              A A
Just as long as you stand, stand by me


Chorus:
    A A                  A A       A A       F#m F#m     F#m F#m
And darlin', darlin', stand by me, oh stand by me 
    D D    E E           A A             A A
oh stand, stand by me, stand by me


Interlude:
[A A][A A][F#m F#m][F#m F#m]
[D D][E E][A A][A A]
[A A][A A][F#m F#m][F#m F#m]
[D D][E E][A A]


Chorus:
A A                  A A       A A       F#m F#m     F#m F#m
Darlin', darlin', stand by me, oh stand by me 
    D D      E E            A A
oh stand, stand by me, stand by me
    A A                                 A A       A A       F#m F#m     F#m F#m
Whenever you're in trouble won't you stand by me, oh stand by me
    D D         E E              A A 
Oh stand, oh stand, stand by me
