Bridge Over Troubled Water

Lyrics

When you're weary, feeling small
When tears are in your eyes, I'll dry them all (all)
I'm on your side, oh, when times get rough
And friends just can't be found

This song has a special place in my heart although it is far out of my generation.
This always reminds me of Greg. Miss those days.
This song always puts me to sleep. .. but I mea that in a good way! My go to lullaby!!
Very beautiful song.
You should hear Willie Nelson's version on Covered By Willie, if you get that far also listen An American Tune. As well as Unchained Melody.
One of the most beautiful songs of All time
This is such a healing song.
This song is great because you can apply it to a romantic relationship or a friendship. It works for both. Thanks S&G.
One of the greatest song ever written!! Even my father loved this song.
when I hear this, I always think of someone I once knew. I want to be there for her, but I can't, and it hurts to know that. but I still look for her, even now...
Love this Song! Hit that HIGH one Garfunkenste i n ! ! !
This song is a dedication to SARA who committed suicide right after she turn 18, she was my daughter's best friend. May the Lord take care of her for all the suffering she experience here in her short life.
My best friend asked if I would think of her every time I heard this song. That was more than 40 years ago. My friend is gone but I do still think of her every time I hear it.

Art Garfunkel - what a voice. Perfection. And those bridges between verses are remarkable.
I was 13 years old in 1970 when this song was a monster hit. I loved it then, I love it now!
They need to play this more on the radio

THIS IS THE SONG I WANT PLAYED AT MY LAST RITES
This song got me through my roughest moments in life. I love it!
classic's classic...
This song has always been my touchstone and inspiration. Art with his angel voice and these chill-induci n g lyrics. Thank you S & G!!
This song came out during a period of troubled times for some of us. Listening to it helped to heal the wounds.
God has built a bridge for everyone through his Son.

It is a beautiful song
Simon and Garfunkel are eternal. I'm 18 and every time anything gets me stuck in life, Simon and Garfunkel usually have something to say on the subject.

Thanks guys!
;)
I was wounded twice in Vietnam and the 2nd time I was in a coma for 8.5 months and when I woke up in intensive care--this is the song that I heard.
Classic beautiful song.I have heard that Paul Simon fought with ART about who would sing the lead in this song . They deffinately chose correctly.
What a great story Maryanne. Beautiful song.

Thankyou
