The original reached number 1 in the US Hot 100, where it stayed for six weeks, and received Grammy Awards for Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best Contemporary Song in 1970. The LP named after the song won the Grammy for Album of the Year. The number was recorded around Christmas 1969. Although released as a performance by "Simon and Garfunkel," only Art Garfunkel actually sang on the number, but then, it was only Paul Simon who wrote it, so fair's fair! The inspiration for Simon to write the song came from a line in the Swan Silvertones' 1958 song, "Mary Don't You Weep" -- "I'll be a bridge over deep water if you trust in my name.," written by Claude Jeter. Elvis's recording was made in a studio—the "live" applause was overdubbed.
