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

G                                    Em
So darlin', darlin', stand by me, oh stand by me 
   C     D             G
oh stand, stand by me, stand by me
 

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

G                                     Em
And darlin', darlin', stand by me, oh stand by me 
   C        D              G
oh stand now, stand by me, stand by me
 
Interlude: G Em C D G
 
G                                    Em
So darlin', darlin', stand by me, oh stand by me 
   C        D              G
oh stand now, stand by me, stand by me
 

G
Whenever you're in trouble just stand by me
   Em              C            D               G
oh stand by me, woa stand now oh stand, stand by me
 
When all

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

Replacing G with G7 sounds better.
