Walker Brothers, The - Stand By Me Lyrics

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

So, darling, darling
Stand by me
Oh, stand by me
Oh, stand, stand by me, stand by me

If the sea that we look upon
Should tumble and fall
Or the mountain
Should crumble in 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

So, darling, darling
Stand by me
Oh, stand by me
Oh, stand, stand by me, stand by me

Walker Brothers, The Stand By Me Comments
  1. Anthony Vann

    Scott Walker was an absolute genius. Amazing version of a song that's rather difficult to cover.

  2. christina færch

    So many great cover versions ;-)<3<3<3

  3. Christine Scott

    best version of this song ... I wish I could have stood by you Scott ... RIP xx

  4. Bigband Pistachio

    RIP Scott Walker. You will be truly missed.

  5. shona goobie

  6. Great Music Never Dies

    I think Scott Walker is one of the best vocalists out there. Easily as good as most who were much more famous...

    And the arrangements of his songs were simply magical!!! His style was called "avant garde"....I would simply say his work was superb...period!!!

    Many don't know that The Walker Brothers are from California!!! They moved to England and never came back!!!

    I have covered him extensively as I do a music thread devoted to old school music called Great Music Never Dies...come visit!!


  7. Melissa Schroeter

    do you think anyone will b e lieve thi s... probably not .... lo v e the song ...

  8. Morris Anderson

    Smooth as silk,, such a fantastic time to be alive as a teenager,, Love the 50s 60s,, such a innocent time,, What's happened to humanity,,

  9. Duff Gordon

    One thing they had going- were the "boss" vocab they throw in stuff- "oh she was fine" The look a likes were great with the ray bans - straight leg Lee Cordss- desert boots. The hunching- hands that "felt it" Real deals

  10. Raymond Morgan

    Nunca llorare nunca tendre miedo si .... estaras conmigo.

  11. Melissa Schroeter

    How dark is a night without the moon shining down on us...... a stand for what...... to be a love or not...... for you... or you a stand by for me........ that will be the one...... I will stand by you.... if you do ... not feel afraid......... to be with me...... do not ask me to if you do not as well stand by me........... I do not stand by any cheating man......... no woman ever should.......... and no man either ... love a one that does not...... love... you..... find a one that will.... belong to only you.....

  12. ann harrison

    This version is Tops, with Scott singing this white boy had major Chops! And what about that Wall of sound Orchestra! And lush VIOLINS!


    If you have orchestrations and violins I'm in. This song is lovely. Thank goodness we can still hear these older memories.

  31. Tonithenightowl

    We are used to hearing Ben E.King but this version is premo.

  33. terrence gurnee

    this is how this song should sound

  34. michael berry

    I had never heard this song by the Walker Brothers before. what a very good arrangement and I would agree with other comments that it is John's voice that makes it so good. Thank you for the upload.


    michael berry it is Scott singing this lead, not John

    Jenny Bruford

    I loved them

    Jenny Bruford

    My idols when i was in my teens

  37. ptkjryan

    Used to work in fairground during summer school hols. in late 60s.

  44. lyn turner

    you must be really young, only excuse for not knowing and getting them confused! and you do realise don't you that not knowing the lead singer is one of the deadly sins!

    Christine Cronje

    lyn turner agreed 100%

  45. Hiro2110able

    @kgradwelll Left: Gary, Center: Jhon, Right: Scott. Scott Wlaker is the lead singer.
    Sadly, Jhon passed away May last year.

  46. Keith Gradwell

    From .12 to .28 who is who from left to right. I keep getting them confused. Which one is John?
    Who is the lead singer with the lower voice?

  47. Quixote010

    Whatever happened to these guys?

  48. gino light

    Very Cool !

  49. srmf2010

    Splendid version. Thanks

  50. Linda Jane Manser

    Great song I met Ben E King in Michigan USA
    and the Walker Bros when they lived in Chelsea London England 60s

  51. Christer Björk

    If you "stand by me", the hold life true, I can surely give you lot of love!
    I wish it was real but it isn`t. I have been missing so much love than i can`t remember, because i am an idiot! Lovely girls, true girls, sweet girls, and I missing them all!! My english is not so good, but I learn every day. Kisses!!!

  52. KerryGrl

    Gorgeous! Soulful and excellent version of one of my favs. Thanks for posting!

  53. Hiro2110able

    I love this version better than other singers' version. The first time I listened to this version was 42 years ago, but I still love this song, especiall sung by the Walker Brothers.

  54. EDM5

    John's harmonies adding emotional impact make this track what it is.

  55. veadlsteak

    And but another beautiful song from Scott. I have
    learned to like this better by them, than the Drifters
    & Ben E King. I didn't think that was possible!!
    With Scott around,,,, it is.
