STAND BESIDE ME   Jo Dee Messina

F           C                F      C               F    C   F
He left me crying late one Sunday night outside of Boul-der
            C               F               G
He said he had to find him-self out on the road
               F         C
I guess when love goes wrong
            F
You gotta learn to be strong
                C    F                C
So I work two jobs      and I moved three times
F                     C                            G
I ended up south of Memphis working down in River-side
          F                G
I may not be so lucky in love 
         F
But the one thing I'm sure of

CHORUS:
   F                 C
I want a man that stands beside me
F                    C   
Not in front of or behind me
F                             C      G    
Give me two arms that wanna hold me not own me
           F                         
Then I'll give all the love in my heart
         C
Stand beside me
     F               C           
Be true Don't tell lies to me
F                       C
I'm not looking for a fantasy
    G                           C 
I wanna a man who stands beside me


F                   C       F       C        F    C   F     
I didn't expect to see him     one hot July morn-ing
               C             F                      G  
His hair was longer but his eyes were the same old blue
               F                G
He said I've missed you for so long
          F  
Oh baby what can I do? I said

Go to chorus
               G      F                      C
It's hard to tell him no when I want him so bad
          G          C          F          G     C
But I've got to be true to my heart this time

Oh oh wo oh
F                      C
I'm not looking for a fantasy
           F               C 
I wanna a man who stands beside me
           F               C
I wanna a man who stands beside me
F        C                F           C   F     C    
Stands beside me  oh oh stands beside me  oh oh oh
