Bridge Over Troubled Water
Johnny Cash 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
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
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

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
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

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
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
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 (ooo)
I'll take your part, oh, 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

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
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

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
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
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
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
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

This is a different song than Simon and Garfunkel sang.  Their version is beautiful.  This is gritty and real.  This is one damaged soul reaching out to another to provide comfort.  This is friendship and love.

Bigga Winna Crapsa good point r c

Bigga Winna Crapsa

No, this is a singer trying his best to turn out a quality product. This is not a damaged soul or any of that claptrap. He had an obligation to his record company and he fulfilled it. "Other guys imitate us, but the original is still the greatest" - Mamas and Papas

My thoughts exactly.My daughter asked me to learn this version on guitar, so she could sing it. (I'd never heard it) Ots impossible to play without emotion!

Tom S

indeed...

Joshua Framke

I was shocked at how accurate that is. That's a damn good comment.

when Johnny sings your song its no longer your song.

Jude R

Nope, johnny cash's version is quite different so it's hard to compare but, no I totally disagree.

Miss Egg

aside from 'In My Life'

Bill Cody

99.9% of the time I agree, but this song is best sung by Art. Johnny has way to powerful a voice. This song requires someone who sounds like they are completely unsure if they can actually support you, but they are going to try.
