Bridge Over Troubled Water

Paul Simon

 

                  E        A            E

When you're weary --, feeling small.

A       D      A   E         A              E                A     E     A

When tears are in your eyes I will dry them all.

E    B  C#m B  F#  B7                       E     E7

I'm on your side --, oh, when times get rough

                        A      F#     B

And friends just can't be found.

 

E7       A      A#° E/B       C#7    A      G#     C#m

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

E7      A       A#° E/B       C#7    A      B7      E

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

 

When you're down and out, when you're on the street.

When the evening falls so hard I will comfort you.

I'll take your part, oh, when darkness comes

And pain is all around.

E7       A      A#° E/B       C#7    A      G#     C#m

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

E7      A       A#° E/B       C#m   A       C#m  G#7  C#m  F#7     E     A      E     A

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

 

           E             A            E

Sail on, silver girl -- sail on by.

A      D     A   E         A                  E                          A       E     A

Your time has come to shine, all your dreams are on their way.

E    B     C#m   B  F#   B7          E

See how they-- shine --, oh, if you need a friend.

E7             A     F#   B

I'm sailing right be---hind.

E7       A      A#° E/B       C#7    A      G#     C#m

Like a bridge over troubled water I will ease your mind.

E7      A       F#7  E/B      C#m   A       G#7        C#m    F#7    E/B    A    Am    E

Like a bridge over troubled water I will ease your mind.
