                CHORDS:
        
   A   (x02220)
   F#m (244222)
   D   (xx0232)
   E   (022100)
   
   
   
   BASS-TAB: [used throughout song]
   
   Sounds a bit high, I know, but it's meant to be played on a bass.

          A                      F#m                 D
   G|---1-2--2-----1-2--2----2-1---------------------------
   D|-2----------2---------------4--4---2-4--4---4-2-0--0--
   A|------------------------------------------------------
   E|------------------------------------------------------
          E          A
   G---------------1-2--2-----1-2--2---|
   D--0-4-2--2---2----------2----------|
   A-----------------------------------|
   E-----------------------------------|
   
   If you're playing it on guitar and want to play it an octave lower
   then you'll have to use Drop-D tuning. (DADGBE)
   Then you can play it like this:

          A                      F#m                 D
   E|------------------------------------------------------
   B|------------------------------------------------------
   G|------------------------------------------------------
   D|------------------------------------------------------
   A|------------------------------------------------------
   D|-2-6-7--7---2-6-7--7----7-6-4--4---2-4--4---4-2-0--0--
          E          A
   E-----------------------------------|
   B-----------------------------------|
   G-----------------------------------|
   D-----------------------------------|
   A-----------------------------------|
   D--0-4-2--2---2-6-7--7---2-6-7--7---|
   
   OK, now you have the bassline. The chord progression through
   the whole song is  A  F#m  D E A.
   
   INTRO:
   
   A  F#m  D E A
   
   
   VERSE 1:
   
            A
   When the night has come

   F#m
     And the land is dark

           D           E                A
   And the moon is the only light we'll see

         A
   No, I won't be afraid

         F#m
   No, I won't be afraid

           D           E               A
   Just as long as you stand, stand by me
   
   
   CHORUS:
   
       A
   So, darling, darling, stand by me

       F#m
   Oh, stand by me

       D      E
   Oh, stand

   
   stand by me

   A
     stand by me
   
   
   VERSE 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
     
   
   CHORUS:
   
   And darling, darling, stand by me
   Oh, stand by me
   Whoh, stand now
   stand by me
   stand by me
   
   
   SOLO:
   
   Play over same chords as usual
   
   
   CHORUS:
   
   And darling, darling, stand by me
   oh, stand by me
   whoh, stand now
   stand by me
   stand by me
   Whenever you're in trouble just stand by me
   oh stand by me...[fade out singing stand by me]
