"Bridge Over Troubled Water (Simon & Garfunkel cover)" as written by Paul Simon and Ivana Kindl....
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

    General CommentThis is an amazing cover. I love Cash's voice. It goes with the song so well. Cash sure did end on a strong note. He was a talented musician.

    General CommentI was always tought to swim, instead of depending on a bridge. Seems helpfull though sometimes...

    Who is the original writer of this song: Simon and Garfunkel? Or did they covered it too?
