Your Old Standby  
recorded by George Jones & Gene Pitney
Written by Jim Eanes and Wade Perry
A shoulder to cry on is all you want from me
D7 G
Someone to share your heartaches when you cry
Someone you can depend on who will always be around
D7 G
I'm nothing more than just your old standby

If you could call me darling if you could call me dear
A7 D7
If you could learn to love me by and by
I wouldn't mind this waiting for I could stand the pain
D7 G
I'd be more to you than just your old standby

You wouldn't call me darling and you wouldn't call me dear
D7 G
I wonder if you'll miss me when I die
You have no consideration you show no sympathy
D7 G
I'm nothing more than just your old standby
