When you're 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.

--- Instrumental ---

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.

--- Instrumental ---

Sail on country boy 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...
