Dolly Parton's Beautiful Cover Of ‘Bridge Over Troubled Water’

The legendary actress and musician Dolly Parton has turned in a terrific rendition of a beloved Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel tune from the 1970s, “Bridge Over Troubled Water.”

Life is an unpredictable experience, often filled with pain, hurt and sorrow. Unfortunately, it can get to the point where even getting through another day feels like a huge win. Situations and circumstances can overwhelm, sending people to dark places mentally. In these times, friends and loved ones are so vitally important. 

Friends, spouses and others can be a support system during distressing periods. Having someone by your side to talk to and cry on can be world-changing. An uplifting and encouraging word may be what someone needs to get through a difficult situation. 

In a video posted on YouTube, Dolly covers Simon and Garfunkel’s classic “Bridge Over Troubled Water.” It’s a tune about being a friend and a trusted confidante to someone who is going through a trying time. 

“Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down”

Like everything else that Dolly does, this cover is fantastic. Even in her late 70s, the multi-talented Hollywood star from Tennessee shows that she still has it. It’s a cover that could be listened to repeatedly.

Others who commented on the video’s YouTube link also expressed their love and adoration for Dolly’s cover of the Simon and Garfunkel song.

“Dolly will always be amongst my top music artists. She is just a beautiful singer. Her voice is beautiful and her songs are beautiful. She is just a remarkable and intelligent and wonderful woman. Women like her as exceedingly rare,” one person added.

“As always ms Dolly is amazing!! Thank you for great music!!” another individual wrote

Colossians 3:16 “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.”
