The Sound Of Silence

(Paul Simon)

Intro: Verse 

Em                                      D                                             Em 
Hello darkness, my old friend, I've come to talk with you again 
                  C          G                                 Em               C          G                   
Because a vision soft creeping, Left it's seeds while I was sleeping 
                   C                     C/G              G                        Em            D              Em                
And the vision that was planted in my brain still remains within the sound of silence 
 Em                                  D                                                   Em 
In restless dreams I walked alone narrow streets of cobblestone 
Em                    C                 G                                   Em           C        G 
'Neath the halo of a street lamp, I turned my collar to the cold and damp 
           C                                                                        G              
When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light 
                                Em                     D                Em 
That split the night and touched the sound of silence 
                                   D                                                    Em 
And in the naked light I saw ten thousand people, maybe more 
                        C       G                         Em                    C           G 
People talking without speaking, people hearing without listening 
                           C                                   G                        Em                          D        Em 
People writing songs that voices never share and no one dare, disturb the sound of silence 
                                        D                                          Em 
Fools said i, you do not know silence like a cancer grows 
                                        C          G                     Em                    C           G 
Hear my words that I might teach you, take my arms that I might reach you 
         C                          G                                  Em                 D        Em 
But my words like silent raindrops fell, and echoed in the wells of silence 
                            D                                                           Em 
And the people bowed and prayed to the neon God they made 
                             C                  G                   Em                     C     G 
And the sign flashed out it's warning, in the words that it was forming 
         Em                          C                                              C                     G 
And the sign said, the words of the prophets are written on the subway walls 
               Em                                               D              Em       
And tenement halls and whispered in the sounds of silence
