I'll Stand By You
Songwriters: Chrissie Hynde,Tom Kelly, and Billy Steinberg

Key of D with change to C and back to D

This is a great song for working on changing from basic bar chords
 throughout the song.  This is taken directly from the piano sheet 
music and I arranged it for guitar. Everything should be correct, 
some of the chord placements may be a hair off due to program spacing. 
Good luck and rock on!

You're feelin' all alone

You won't be on your own
