The Sound Of Silence

(Paul Simon)

	  Intr.: Em  
  
 Em                     D  
Hello darkness, my old friend,  
                            Em  
I've come to talk with you again,  
                     C     G  
Because a visions softly creeping,  
                       C    G  
Left its seeds while I was sleeping,  
             C                                 
And the vision that was planted 
               G              Em 
 in to my brain, still remains  
G              D             Em  
Within the sound of silence  
                               D  
In restless dreams I walked alone  
                       Em  
Narrow streets of cobblestone,  
                      C      G  
'Neath the halo of a street lamp,  
                           C        G  
I turned my collar to the cold and damp  
         C                                       G  
When my eyes were stabbed by the flash by a neon light  
                    Em  
That split the night  
G               D        Em  
And touched the sound of silence  
                          D  
And in the naked light I saw  
                            Em  
Ten thousand people, maybe more  
                  C        G  
People talking without speaking,  
                  C        G  
People hearing without listening,  
                C                       G  
People writing songs that voices never share  
             Em  
And no one dare  
G            D         Em  
Disturb the sound of silence  
                           D  
Fools said I, "You do not know"  
                       Em  
Silence like a cancer grows  
                      C          G  
Hear my words that I might teach you,  
                      C         G  
Take my arms that I might reach you  
       C                        G    Em  
But my words like silent raindrops fell, 
      G  
And echoed  
        D        Em  
In the walls of silence  
                          D  
And the people bowed and prayed  
                       Em  
To the neon god they'd made  
                     C         G  
And the sign flashed out is warning,  
                     C      G  
In the words that is was forming  
                       C  
And the sign said the words of the prophets  
                          G  
Are written on the subway walls  
              Em  
And tenement halls  
        G             D        Em  
And whisper'd in the sound of silence.
