No One Stands Alone is an album by the folk group Blue Murder, recorded and issued 2002.

All of the songs on the album are sung in ensemble, but the sound mix varies on each track. For example the female voices are much quieter on the "male" song, "Bully in the Alley". Mike Waterson's voice is to the fore in his own song "Rubber Band". Martin Carthy plays guitar on "Rubber Band", "Blue Mountain", "Mole in a Hole" and "The Goodnight Song". Lester Simpson plays accordion on "Three Day Millionaire". "The Land Where You Never Grow Old" is probably influenced by Johnny Cash's version of the song.
