You Stand By Me (Pete Townshend) Eel Pie Publishing Ltd. / BMG Music Publishing, Ltd.

Pete: "I wrote this a few minutes before appearing on my partner Rachel Fuller’s In The Attic Live webcast show from my studio in London. I had nothing new to play, and decide to write a song. This just came out. It is for her, and for Roger, for believing in me, and standing by me when I have been completely out of order. It could be for many of my family, friends and fans who have done the same. I have often been a very tricky man to live with."

Pete added in an interview with the Los Angeles City Beat, "What then actually happened is Roger spotted this stuff and fed back to me, 'Hey, I love this!' And I was taken by surprise. Really?"
 

When I'm in trouble
You stand by me
When I see double
You stand by me
You take my side
Against those who lied
You take my side
Gimme back my pride

When I been losing
You stand by me
When I been boozin'
You stand by me
You take my side
Against those who lied
You take my side
Gimme back my pride

I suppose I could make it all my own
I know I'd arrive all skin and all bone
You are the strongest back I've ever known
You carried me, carried me, carried me
You carried me home

When I'm crying
You stand by me
When I am dying
You stand by me
