Mickey Gilley Greatest Hits

1. Mickey Gilley Stand By Me

When the night has come
And the land is dark
And the moon is the only light we’ll see
No I won’t be afraid, no I won’t be afraid
Just as long as you stand, stand by me
And darlin’, darlin’, stand by me, oh now now stand by me
Stand by me, stand by me
If the sky that we look upon
Should tumble and fall
And the mountains should crumble to the sea
I won’t cry, I won’t cry, no I won’t shed a tear
Just as long as you stand, stand by me
And darlin’, darlin’, stand by me, oh stand by me
Stand by me, stand by me, stand by me-e, yeah
Whenever you’re in trouble won’t you stand by me,
Oh now now stand by me
Oh stand by me, stand by me, stand by me
Darlin’, darlin’, stand by me, stand by me
Oh stand by me, stand by me, stand by me

2. I Overlooked An Orchid

3. That’s All That Matters To Me

4. Window Up Above

I’ve been living a new way
Of life I love so
I can see the clouds are gath’ring
And the storm will wreck our home
Last night he held you tightly
And you didn’t even shove
This is true for I’ve been watching
From the window up above.

You must have thought that I was sleeping
Oh, I wish that I had been
But it’s best I get to know you
And the way your heart can sin
I thought we belonged together
And our hearts fit like a glove
I was wrong for I was watching

From the window up above.
From my eyes the teardrops started
As I listened on and on
I heard you whisper to him softly
That our marriage was all wrong
Well, I hope he makes you happy
And you never lose his love
I lost mine while I was watching
From the window up above.

I lost mine while I was watching
From the window up above
