Bridge Over Troubled Water
Eva Cassidy Lyrics

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

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
Oh when darkness comes
And friends just can't be found
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down

Sail on silver girl
Sail on by
Your time has come to shine
All your dreams are on their way
See how they shine
Oh if you need a friend
Well I'm standing right behind

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

Her voice is my emotional vacation; the escapism needed after a trying day, week, month, year. I’m glad her legacy lives on through song.

You said perfectly what I've been struggling to say for a few years now.

Then in late May of 1974 I heard a whisper that the girl in Alaska had a daughter and named her Jewel, I told my family I have a daughter in Alaska, and my older brother said " and who did you hear that from the girl that told Mom she didn't know what You were talking about, look Mike (my brother) I served two years in a radar station in Alaska during the Vietnam War and never had a girlfriend let alone a wife, you come home from Toronto with this outrageous story of an imaginary wife and know you have this imaginary daughter named Jewelry. I replied to him her name is Jewel and if I don't get to go to Alaska to see them this is going to haunt us. Well back to the Dr's for me, in the back seat of my Dad's car on the way to the Dr's I ate the whole sheet of 💯 hits of LSD trying to kill myself because no one believed me, well like I said long story short, Jewel Kilcher is My Biological Daughter and her songs foolish games and enter from the East are about this situation and the guy Jewel calls her Father in Public is the same guy that gave me her mother's hand in Marriage

S.D. music can hold many things, believe it or not in 1973 I met my wife of my youth at an LRY confrance in Toronto Canada September 1, her brother gave me his sister's hand in Marriage because I have a draft card for the Vietnam War , well long story short I haven't seen my wife since the day I met her, she from Alaska and I from Western NY, I ended up in Dr's care trying to see her

Almost 25 years ago Eva went to Heaven. Without a doubt she was the best female Singer to ever walk the face of the earth. And a good Guitarist as well. I still love what she did and I always will. RIP and sing with the Angels


What the fuck??? No way

She died 25 years ago today, Nov. 2, 1996. What a gift. What a loss.
