"Stand By Me (Ben E. King cover)" as written by Eric Pulido, Mckenzie Smith and Robert Gomez....
When the night has come
And the land is dark
And the moon is the only light we 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
And 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
Stand by me
Oh stand by me, stand by me, stand by me

    General CommentI actually like John's version better than King's version, because I take this as a more demanding stand by me, the first is much smoother

    General CommentI believe when lennon covered it he was referring to his realationship with yoko ono and how peopla and his fellow band members did not except her. i may be wrong but that is what i think.

    General Commenti am band memeber , and my most recent performance was my first performance.it was an important occasion , as it was Honor's Day at school.
    my band , apparently , was playing STAND BY ME as the final choice piece .
    after stand by me was played , everybody applauded gratefully , showing that they enjoyed the song STAND BY ME more than the other songs...they applauded so enthusiastically that the great feeling is still felt in my heart...i love this song , and it is one song i will cherish forever...

    General CommentOkay, I have the John Lennon Collection CD, and this song is on it, but he does not sing it. It is a Ben E. King song. John produced it, but does that really make it a John Lennon song? Anyway, it's a really beautiful song.

    General CommentAn amazing cover equal to Ben E. King's and Pennywise's version. All three covers of this deadly song are one of my favourites ever if not my favourite.
