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

A                                    Gbm
So darlin', darlin', stand by me, oh stand by me 
   D     E             A
oh stand, stand by me, stand by me
 

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

A                                     Gbm
And darlin', darlin', stand by me, oh stand by me 
   D        E              A
oh stand now, stand by me, stand by me
 
Interlude: A Gbm D E A
 
A                                    Gbm
So darlin', darlin', stand by me, oh stand by me 
   D        E              A
oh stand now, stand by me, stand by me
 

A
Whenever you're in trouble just stand by me
   Gbm              D            E               A
oh stand by me, woa stand now oh stand, stand by me
 
When all

Replacing G with G7 sounds better.
Also, strumming pattern is DDUUDU.

Roni

I learned an easier way to play it
Strumming pattern: DU DU DU (2x C, AM, C) (1x F,G7) play throughout whole song.
Chords: C AM F G7 C
