Charles Tindley, the legendary gospel composer, created this number in 1905—he was also responsible for "By And By" and "I'll Overcome Some Day" (later known as "We Shall Overcome"). Madame Magdalene Tartt Lawrence's original recording of "Stand By Me" was made in December 1922 (possibly the 15th), but seems not to have been released until late 1923 or even early 1924—an advertisement for the record was printed in the May 1924 issue of a magazine called "The Crisis." Lawrence's original was made for the Paramount label, matrix G05091 and released as the B-side of "His Eye Is On The Sparrow," Paramount number 12092. The writing credits on the label are erroneously listed as "C. A. Lindley."
An informal home recording of Elvis singing the "Stand By Me," made in April 1959 during his stay in Germany, also exists.
