Bridge Over Troubled Water

When your feeling weary, feeling small,

when tears are in your eyes,

I will dry them all.

I'm on your side,

oh 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 are down and out,

when your on the street,

when evening falls so hard,

I will care for you.

I'll take your part,

oh when darkness comes,

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.

Oh if you need a friend,

I'm sailing right behind.

Like a bridge over troubled water,

I will ease your mind.

Like a bridge over troubled water,

I will ease your mind.

    Have you ever heard Aretha Franklin's version of this song, it will bring tears to your eyes. One of my all time favourites...such good memories attached. Thanks for sharing.

    Thank you for sharing these lyrics. It is one of my favorite songs. My all time favorite is "Marlene Dietrich's Favorite Poem" by Peter Murphy. Anyone that enjoys poetic lyrics should check it out.
