A swarm of bees in May
Is worth a load of hay;
A swarm of bees in June
Is worth a silver spoon;
A swarm of bees in July
Is not worth a fly.
There I was on a July morning,
I was looking for love.
With the strength
Of a new day dawning
And the beautiful sun.
And at the sound
Of the first bird singing
I was leaving for home.
With the storm
And the night behind me
Yeah, and a road of my own.

Most common English prepositions

Hi everybody, I'm trying to create a list of the most common English prepositions. I need this because I always make a grammar mistake when I write something, forgetting to put the -ing verb form after a preposition.
Searching on the web I drafted this list. Can someone tell me if it's complete or not ? (I'm looking for the most common preposition)

About
Above
Across
After
against
Along
Among
Around
At

Before
Behind
Beyond
Below
Beneath
Beside
Between
But
By

Concerning
Considering

despite
down
during

Except
Excluding

Following
For
From

In
Including
Inside
Into

Like

Near

Of
Off
On
Onto
Out
Outside
Over

Past
Plus

Since

Than
Throug
Throughout
To
Towards

Under
Underneath
Unlike
Until
Up
Upon
Up to

With
Within
Without

I have another question. What about those prepositions that are already in ing form like Excluding, Following an so on? There is anyway a need of an -ing verb form after them?
Thanks in advance to all can answer me :)
