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.

When you’re down and out, when you’re on the street,


when evening falls so hard I will comfort you.

When darkness comes and pain is all around,


like a bridge over troubled water, I will lay me down.

If you need a friend, I’m sailing right behind.

Like a bridge over troubled water, I will ease your


mind.
