Stand By Me - Song Lyrics

As performed by Ben E. King
A # 1 R&B and # 4 Top 40 hit from 1961
Re-released in 1986 for the movie of the same name and hit # 9 on the Top 40 charts
An excellent first dance song at weddings

When the night has come
And the land is dark
And the moon is the only light we'll see

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

So darling darling, stand by me, oh, stand by me,
Oh, stand, stand by me, stand by me.

If the sky that we look upon
Should tumble and fall
Or the Mountain should crumble in 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.

So ,darling, darling, stand by me, oh, stand by me
Oh, stand, stand by me, stand by me.
