Simon & Garfunkel - The Sound of Silence

4/4 - 2/4
|4/4 Dm                      |
|Dm                          |C                      |
 Hello darkness,      my old  friend
|C                           |Dm                     |
 I've come to talk with you a-gain
|             F              |Bb           F         |
   Be-cause a vi-sion soft-ly cree-        ping
|F                           |Bb           F         |
   Left its seeds while I was slee-        ping
2/4        |4/4 Bb           |Bb                     |
And the     vi-sion that was  plant-ed     in   my    
|F                           |             Dm        |
 brain               Still re-mains
2/4 F       |4/4 C           |Dm                     |
 With-in The Sound         of Si-lence

Dm                            C 
  In restless dreams I walked alone
                              Dm
  Narrow streets  of  cob-ble-stone
                  F    Bb     F
  'Neath the halo of a street lamp
                            Bb       F
  I turned my collar to the cold and damp
          Bb                       Bb              F
  When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
                 F                 Dm
  That split the night
F                 C        Dm
  And touched The Sound of Si-lence 

And in the naked light I saw
Ten thousand people, maybe more
People talking without speaking
People hearing without listening
People writing songs that voices never share
And no one dared
Disturb the sound of silence

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

And the people bowed and prayed
To the neon god they made
And the sign flashed out its warning
In the words that it was forming
And the sign said, 
  the words of the prophets are written 
  on the subway walls
And tenement halls
And whispered in the sounds of silence
