Stand By Me
King/Leiber/Stoller

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.

And darling, darling
Stand by me
Oh now now stand by me
Stand by me
Stand by me

If the sky that we look upon
Should tumble and fall
Or the mountain should crumble to 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

And darling, darling
Stand by me
Oh stand by me
Stand by me
Stand by me
Stand by me

Whenever you're in trouble, won't you stand by me?
Oh now now stand by me
Oh stand by me
Stand by me
Stand by me

Darling, darling
Stand by me
Please, stand by me
Oh stand by me
Stand by me
Stand by me.

Pozn:Zde uvedená fotografie je pořízena z televizního vystoupení pro pořad A Salute To Sir Lew Grade z června 1975, kdy byl Lennon doprovázen skupinou Etcetera, jejíž členové nosily masky s dvěma tvářemi. Záznam z tohoto vystoupení je dobře k vidění na DVD Lennon Legend(2003). Lennon zde zahrál celkem tři písně - Stand By Me, Slippin´ And Slidin´ a Imagine. Jen tak mimochodem - zde zazpívaná Imagine asi nedá spát mnoha fanouškům Johna Lennona, protože ten si ji dovolil "znesvětit" zpopíkovaným zpěvem se žvýkačkou v puse.
