Song     : The Sound Of Silence

Singer   : Simon And Garfunkel


Chords : Am, G, F, C, C/B

Capo    : 6th fret


[Verse 1]

(Am)Hello darkness, my old (G)frien,

I’ve come to talk with you (Am)again, 

Because a vision soft(F)ly creep(C)ing,

Left its seeds while I (F)was slee(C)ping,

And the (F)vision that was planted in my (C)brain

Still remains(C/B) (Am)

(C)Within the (G)sound of (Am)silence.


[Verse 2]  

In restless dreams I (G)walked alone  

Narrow streets of cobble(Am)stone,  

‘neath the halo of (F)a street (C)lamp,   

I turned my collar to the (F)cold and (C)damp

When my (F)eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon (C)light 

That split the night(C/B)(Am)

(C)And touched the (G)sound of (Am)silence.


[Verse 3]  

And in the naked light I (G)saw  

Ten thousand people, maybe (Am)more.

People talking with(F)out spea(C)king, 

People hearing with(F)out liste(C)ning,  

People writing (F)songs that voices never (C)share

And no one dare(C/B)(Am)

(C)Disturb the (G)sound of (Am)silence.


[Verse 4] 

Fools said I, you do not (G)know 

Silence like a cancer (Am)grows.

Hear my words that I (F)might teach (C)you,

Take my arms that I (F)might reach (C)you.

But my (F)words like silent raindrops (C)fell,(C/B)(Am)

And(C) echoed

In the (G)wells of (Am)silence


[Verse 5] 

And the people bowed and (G)prayed 

To the neon God they (Am)made.

And the sign flashed out (F)its war(C)ning,

In the words that it (F)was for(C)ming. 

And the sign said, the (F)words of the prophets 

Are written on the subway (C)walls 

And tenement (C)halls.(C/B)(Am)        

And (C)whisper’d in the (G)sounds of (Am)silence.
