Lyrics
Written by Jim Eanes & Wade Perry
(As performed by George Jones & Gene Pitney)

A shoulder to cry on is all you want from me
Someone to share your heartaches when you cry
Someone you can depend on, who will always be around
I'm nothing more than just your old standby

(Chorus:)
If you could call me darlin, if you could call me dear
If you could learn to love me by and by
I wouldn't mind this waiting, for I could stand the pain
I'd be more to you than just your old standby

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

(Repeat chorus)
