Artist: Ben E King 
Song: Stand By Me
Tabbed by: John Leadman
                 
CHORDS:
        
   A   (x02220)
   F#m (244222)
   D   (xx0232)
   E   (022100)
   
   
   
   BASS-TAB: [used throughout song]
   
   Sounds a bit high, I know, but it's meant to be played on a bass.

          A                      F#m                 D
   G|---1-2--2-----1-2--2----2-1---------------------------
   D|-2----------2---------------4--4---2-4--4---4-2-0--0--
   A|------------------------------------------------------
   E|------------------------------------------------------
          E          A
   G---------------1-2--2-----1-2--2---|
   D--0-4-2--2---2----------2----------|
   A-----------------------------------|
   E-----------------------------------|
   
   If you're playing it on guitar and want to play it an octave lower
   then you'll have to use Drop-D tuning. (DADGBE)
   Then you can play it like this:

          A                      F#m                 D
   E|------------------------------------------------------
   B|------------------------------------------------------
   G|------------------------------------------------------
   D|------------------------------------------------------
   A|------------------------------------------------------
   D|-2-6-7--7---2-6-7--7----7-6-4--4---2-4--4---4-2-0--0--
          E          A
   E-----------------------------------|
   B-----------------------------------|
   G-----------------------------------|
   D-----------------------------------|
   A-----------------------------------|
   D--0-4-2--2---2-6-7--7---2-6-7--7---|
   
   OK, now you have the bassline. The chord progression through
   the whole song is  A  F#m  D E A.
   
   INTRO:
   
   A  F#m  D E A

I have seen other people make this song way to complicated. 
Here are very simple chords to play along with the music.
You should be able to hear the changes in the song.
Have fun and experiment with different combinations.
Listen to the song for the timing.
Here is the order I use:

G - Em - C - D7

G  -320001
Em -022000
C  -X32
