When you're weary, feeling small,

When tears are in your eyes,

I will dry them all,

And friends just can't be found.

I will lay me down.

When you're down and out,
            G          D     G
When you're on the street,
     C       G     D      G
When evening falls so hard
         D        G
I will comfort you.
       A   B7    A
I'll take your part.

When darkness comes

And pain is all around,

I will lay me down.

Like a bridge over troubled water
        A7     D
I will lay me down.

Sail on by.

Your time has come to shine.

All your dreams are on their way.

See how they shine.

I'm sailing right behind.

Like a bridge over troubled water

One little correction, I noticed your chord scheme for Bm shows an F# ;-)

Thanks for the chords, my 3w old daughter loves it!

Another chord scheme correction, the scheme for D and D7 are the same. D should be 000232. Great work, and thanks for the chords. I was inspired by discovering an old song book of mine from the 60s - your chords are much better!

Not the correct chords at the right place. Not even sure if it's the right chords at all at some places.
