So here it is then. Where I wrote the X's I usually just tap the strings with my right hand to resemble the in Otis' version. It's not required but I find it adds some character to the song. =)

It's the same chords for the chorus as for the verse. Here's the lyrics with the chords it may or may not be of help to you. When the nCight has come Am And the land is dark And the mFoon is the onGly light we'll sCee No I wCon't be afraid, no I wAmon't be afraid Just as lFong as you stGand, stand Cby me CAnd darlin', darlin', stand by me, oh now now sAmtand by me Oh now sFtand, G stand by me,C stand by me. If the sCky that we look upon Am Should tumble and fall And the moFuntains should crGumble to the sCea I won't cCry, I won't cry, no I wAmon't shed a tear Just as lFong as you stGand, stand Cby me CAnd darlin', darlin', stand by me, oh now now sAmtand by me Oh now sFtand, G stand by me,C stand by me. CWhenever you're in trouble won't you stand by me, oh now now stAmand by me Oh now sFtand, G stand by me,C stand by me. CAnd darlin', darlin', stand by me, oh now now sAmtand by me Oh now sFtand, G stand by me,C stand by me. Hope you like it. =) any comments, feel free to leave them on the comments page or send email.
