STAND BY ME   Ben E. King, as performed by Willy DeVille

Intro, played by bass and the crrrrrrch

[G]    When the night has come
[Em]  And the land is dark
And the [C]moon is the [D]only light we'll [G]see

No, I won't be afraid,
No, I won't be afraid
Just as long, Just as long as you stand by me.

+ drum with rim shot and muted guitar, on

If the sky that we look upon
Should tumble and fall
And the mountains should crumble to the sea,

I won't cry, I won't cry,
No, I won't shed a tear
Just as long, Just as long as you stand by me.

2nd guitar played chords, drum plays snare on every 2nd

So, darling, darling, stand by me,
Oh! stand, oh darling won't you stand now
Stand by me.

Repeat Verse 1 and 2, drum plays the snare on every 4th
Repeadt Verse 2 and 3, drum plays rim shot

Full instrumentation, as in Chorus + Hammond organ

When all your friends they have gone
You just stand by me
Oh darling, won't you stand now, stand by me.

Don't forget to stay on G, Markus!
[G]When ever you're in trouble
You just stand, ohh stand.
Won't you stand, won't you stand, won't you stand....

Stand by me...
