Stand by me

Dedicado a mi amigo Adolfo


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.
Oh, 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 sky that we look upon
Should tumble and fall,
And the mountains
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.
Oh, stand, stand by me, stand by me.

Whenever you're in trouble,
Won't you stand by me?
Oh, stand by me, stand by me, stand by me.

La versión original de Ben E. King es mi preferida. Sin embargo, esta otra interpretada por Bono y Bruce Springsteen (Philadelphia, 1987), es francamente divertida:

Absolutamente de acuerdo con los comentarios, la versión de King es difícilmente superable, gracias por recordárnosla ;)
 
Lo original siempre tiene su mérito, pero tampoco hay que olvidar la versión de John Lennon; de todas formas cuando una canción es tan perfecta, dificilmente la pueden estropear.
 
Qué gran canción! De mis preferidas (si no es la más).

Willy Deville también hizo una versión. Se la he oido cantar tb junto con Vanessa Paradise.
