About Stand By Your Man

"Stand by Your Man" is a song co-written by Tammy Wynette and Billy Sherrill and originally recorded by Wynette, released as a single in the United States on September 20, 1968. It proved to be the most successful record of Wynette's career, and is one of the most familiar songs in the history of country music. The song was placed at number one on CMT's list of the Top 100 Country Music Songs. Released as a single, it stayed number one on the U. S. country charts for three weeks. "Stand by Your Man" crossed over to the U. S. pop charts, peaking at number nineteen. It elevated Wynette—then one of many somewhat successful female country recording artists—to superstar status. It reached number one in the UK Singles Chart when the record was released in the United Kingdom in 1975, and also reached number one in the Netherlands. An album of the same name—which was also quite successful—was released in 1968. The song earned Wynette the 1970 Grammy Award for Best Country Vocal Performance, Female - her second Grammy win in that category - and was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1999. 


 The easy, fast & fun way to learn how to sing:

Sometimes its hard to be a woman
Givin´ all your love to just one man
You´ll have bad times
And he´ll have good times
Doin´ things that you don´t understand

But if you love him you´ll forgive him
Even though he´s hard to understand
And if you love him
Oh, be proud of him
´Cause, after all, he´s just a man

Stand by your man
Give him two arms to cling to
And something warm to come to
When nights are cold and lonely

Stand by your man
And show the world you love him
Keep givin´ all the love you can
Stand by your man [Repeat: x 2]
