Stand by Me  --  Ben E. King

A chord diagramA augmentedA straightforward way to get the chords and the bassline together.
I guess you can use a pick or fingers; I use fingers.  You can leave
out the passing notes, use a pause instead, and play the upper three
notes of each chord together if you want a loping rhythm instead of
this moving one.

This repeats over and over, including for the chorus, so you can work
out the lyrics placement on your own.  I did include the first two words
as though this were just the intro.
