Bridge Over Troubled Water is just a beautiful song by Simon & Garfunkel. I can remember hearing this when I was a little boy.

bridge over troubled waterBridge Over Troubled Water is an obvious song about giving comfort to a person in need. Paul Simon said that this was “considerable better than what I usually write” in a documentary about the tune. Paul thought that the lyrics at the beginning of the song were too simple, but later realized that those “simple lyrics” was what gave the song a universal appeal. For me, I heard this song on 8-track and it’s haunting melody stuck with me. I always associate it with AM radio as well. Bridge Over Troubled Water is a timeless piece, a credit to good song writing.

Lyrics:

When you’re weary, feeling small,
When tears are in your eyes, I will dry them all;
I’m on your side. 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
I will comfort you.
I’ll take your part.
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 silvergirl,
Sail on by.
Your time has come to shine.
All your dreams are on their way.
See how they shine.
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.
