 Hello darkness, my old friend, I've come to talk with you again 
                       C      G                           C       G
 Because a vision softly creeping left its seeds while I was sleeping
          C                              G                              Em*
 And the vision that was planted in my brain                         ------------
      Em                   D       Em*                               --0-0-0-0---
 Still remains within the sound of silence                           ---2-0------
                             D                            Em         ------------
 In restless dreams I walked alone narrow streets of cobblestone     ------------
                     C        G                              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     G                      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                       C         G
 People talking without speaking; people hearing without listening
                 C                        G
 People writing songs that voices never share
             Em  D/F# G D/F# Em              D        Em*
 And no one dared               disturb the sound of silence

                         D                             Em
 Fools said I, you do not know, silence like a cancer grows
                       C           G                        C           G
 Hear my words that I might teach you; take my arms that I might reach you
         C                           G       Em   
 But my words like silent raindrops fell 
D/F# G              D       Em*
 And echoed in the wells of silence

Em  D        G                 D                          Em
    And the people bowed and prayed to the neon god they made
                          C        G                          C      G
 And the sign flashed out it's warning and the words that it was forming
                        C                                               G
 And the sign said the words of the prophets are written on the subway walls
            Em   D/F# G        
 And tenement halls 
 D/F# Em               D                Em*  Em*  Em*  D Em
 And whispered in the sound of silence

I meant no offence to your tab making. I'm simply saying that it is mostly incorrect, and am simply suggesting that you take another look at the tab you wrote and correct it before people start making fools of themselves and actually playing it on stage. All of that aside, I would be glad to leave a 4 or 5 star rating on this tab if you simply correct it.

Thank you very much for your careful use of language and stature when replying to someone you do not know online. It really shows the maturity that you must so proudly hold high.

You may want to rate the tab now too:
