Bridge Over Troubled Waters Lyrics

by Paul Simon

When you're weary, feelin' small
When tears are in your eyes, well I will dry them all

I'm on your side, ohhh, when times get rough
And friends just can't be found

Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down

When you're down and out
When you're on the street,
When evening falls so hard
Well, I will comfort you

I'll take your part
Ohhh, Darkness comes
(Ahh)
And pain is all around

Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down

Sail on silver girl
Sail on by
Your time has come to shine
All your dreams are on their way

See how they shine
(Shine, like silver on the water shines)
If you need a friend
(Ooo ooo)
I'm sailin' right behind

O just like a bridge over troubled water
(Like a bridge over troubled water)
I will ease your mind
(Like a bridge over troubled water)
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind

Ooo ooo
