Bridge Over Troubled Water (Simpler Version)
Simon and Garfunkel (Paul Simon, 1970)


When you're | [D] weary   | [G] feeling   | [D] small   |
[G] When tears are   | [D] in your   | [G] eyes
I will   | [D] dry them [G] all   | [D] [G] |
[D] I'm on your   | [A] side   | ohh when times get   | [D] rough   |
[D7] And friends just   | [G] can't be   | [A] found

Chorus
[D7] Like a   | [G] bridge  [E7] over   | [D] troubled  [B7] water   |
[G] I will [A7] lay me   | [D] down
[D7] Like a   | [G]  bridge [E7] over   | [D] troubled [B7] water   |
[G] I will  [A7]  lay me   | [D] down   | [G] | [D] | [G] | [D] | [G] |

When you're   | [D] down and out   | [G] when you're on the   | [D] street
[G]  When  evening   | [D] falls so   | [G] hard
I will   | [D] comfort  [G] you   | [D] [G] |
[D] I'll  take your   | [A] part   | [A7] oh when darkness   | [D] comes |
[D7] And pain is   | [G] all  a- | [A] round

Chorus
[D7] Like a   | [G] bridge  [E7] over   | [D] troubled  [B7] water   |
[G] I will [A7] lay me   | [D] down
[D7] Like a   | [G]  bridge [E7] over   | [D] troubled [B7] water   |
[G] I will  [A7]  lay me   | [D] down   | [G] | [D] | [G] | [D] | [G] |

Sail on   | [D] silver girl   | [G] sail on   | [D] by   |
[G]  Your time has   | [D] come to   | [G] shine
All your   | [D] dreams are on their [G] way   | [D] [G]   |
[D] See how they   | [A] shine   | [A7] ohh if you   | [D] need a friend   |
[D7] I'm sailing   | [G] right be- | [A] hind

Chorus
[D7] Like a   | [G] bridge  [E7] over   | [D] troubled  [B7] water   |
[G] I will [A7] lay me   | [D] down
[D7] Like a   | [G]  bridge [E7] over   | [D] troubled [B7] water   |
[G] I will  [A7]  ease your   | [D] mind   | [G] | [D] | [G] | [D↓]
