Intro: [Am Am]

Am Am                      G G
 Hello darkness, my old friend
G G                            Am Am
 I've come to talk with you again
Am Am                     F F -   C C -
 Because a vision softly creeping
C C                         F F -     C C
 Left it's seeds while I was sleeping
        F F               F F             C C
And the vision that was planted in my brain
       Am Am    Am Am  -       G G        Am Am     
Still remains within the sound of silence

Am Am>Let ring                   G G
 In restless dreams I walked alone
G G                         Am Am
 Narrow streets of cobblestone
Am Am                 F F -      C C -
 Neath the halo of a street lamp
C C                          F F -      C C
 I turned my collar to the cold and damp
        F F                        F F               C C
When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
               Am Am   Am Am  -            G G        Am Am
That split the night and touched the sound of silence

Am Am                        G G
 And in the naked light I saw
G G                           Am Am
 Ten thousand people, maybe more
Am Am                  F F -     C C -
 People talking without speaking
C C                   F F -      C C   -
 People hearing without listening
C C               F F          F F             C C
 People writing songs that voices never share
           Am Am  Am Am  -        G G        Am Am     
And no one dare disturb the sound of silence

Am Am                        G G
 Fools said I, you do not know
G G                      Am Am
 Silence like a cancer grows
Am Am                    F F -         C C -
 Hear my words that I might teach you
C C                    F F -         C C
 Take my arms that I might reach you
       F F          F F                C C    C C -
But my words like silent raindrops fell
Am Am - C C             G G        Am Am     
 And echoed in the wells of silence

Am Am                        G G
 And the people bowed and prayed
G G                     Am Am
 To the neon God they made
Am Am                        F F -     C C -
 And the sign flashed out it's warning
C C                     F F -     C C   -
 In the words that it was forming
C C                      F F                         F F                     C C
 And the sign said the words of the prophets are written on the subway walls
             C C  -   Am Am - 
And tenement halls
    C C               G G>let ring Am Am>let ring     
And whisperd in the sounds of  silence
