[Intro] D G D G


[Verse 1]

           D      G       D      G
When you're weary, feeling small,
     C     G   D         G
When tears are in your eyes,
         D        G
I will dry them all,
     A  B7  A                      D       D7
I'm on your side. Oohh when times get rough,
         D9    G    E   A
And friends just can't be found.


[Chorus 1]

 D7  D9  G     A7    D    Bm      G
Like a bridge over troubled waters,
        A7     D
I will lay me down.
 D7  D9  G     A7    D    Bm      G
Like a bridge over troubled waters,
        A7     D
I will lay me down.

D G D G


[Verse 2]

             G       D      G      
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.
       D         D7
When darkness comes
    D7     G   E    A
And pain is all around,


[Chorus 2]

 D7  D9  G     A7    D    Bm      G
Like a bridge over troubled water
        A7     D
I will lay me down.
 D7  D9  G     A7    D    Bm      G
Like a bridge over troubled water
        A7     D
I will lay me down.

D G D G


[Verse 3]

     G   D     G
Sail on silvergirl,
G   D   G
Sail on by.
     C    D   G       D
Your time has come to shine.
           D                G
All your dreams are on their way.
     A   B7       A
See how they shine.
       D       D7
If you need a friend
        D7  G    E     A
I'm sailing right behind.


[Chorus 3]

 D7  D9  G     A7    D    Bm      G
Like a bridge over troubled water
        A7     D
I will ease your mind.
 D7  D9  G     A7    D    Bm      G
Like a bridge over troubled water
        A7     D
I will ease your mind.

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.
