    standard
    Otis version uses the Chords: A - F#m - D - E - A
    But I think it's more comfortable to sing and play it when transcribed to:
    CAmFGC
     
    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.
    CAm
    When the night has come 
    And the land is dark
    FGC
    And the moon is the only light we'll see 
    CAm
    No I won't be afraid, no I won't be afraid 
    FGC
    Just as long as you stand, stand by me 
    CAm
    And darlin', darlin', stand by me, oh now now stand by me 
    FGC
    Oh now stand, stand by me, stand by me. 
    CAm
    If the sky that we look upon 
    Should tumble and fall
    FGC
    And the mountains should crumble to the sea 
    CAm
    I won't cry, I won't cry, no I won't shed a tear 
    FGC
    Just as long as you stand, stand by me 
    CAm
    And darlin', darlin', stand by me, oh now now stand by me 
    FGC
    Oh now stand, stand by me, stand by me. 
    CAm
    Whenever you're in trouble won't you stand by me, oh now now stand by me 
    FGC
    Oh now stand, stand by me, stand by me. 
    CAm
    And darlin', darlin', stand by me, oh now now stand by me 
    FGC
    Oh now stand, stand by me, stand by me.
