John Lennon stand by me

"Stand by Me" is the title of a song originally performed by Ben E. King and written by him, Jerry Leiber, and Mike Stoller, based on the spiritual "Lord Stand by Me" [1], which in turn has roots in Psalms 46.

There have been over 400 recorded versions of "Stand by Me", including versions by John Lennon, Otis Redding, Jimi Hendrix and Elton John.
