Bridge Over Troubled Waters

December 19, 2010

When I returned from Viet Nam in Fall 1969, while still in the military in Louisiana, I played the Simon and Garfunkel song “Bridge Over Troubled Water” over, and over, and over, almost every night for weeks. I still often play that song for my ears and heart to this day.

Here are the 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 silvergirl, Sail on by. Your time has come to shine. All your dreams are on their way. See how they shine.

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.
