[Verse 1]
Am                        G
   Hello darkness, my old friend,
                           Am
I've come to talk with you again,
                     F       C
Because a vision softly creeping,
                        F       C
Left it's seeds while I was sleeping,
        F                             C
And the vision that was planted in my brain
              Am
Still remains
C           G        Am
Within the sound of silence.

[Verse 2]
Am                             G
   In restless dreams I walked alone
                        Am
Narrow streets of cobblestone,
                   F        C
'neath the halo of a street lamp,
                          F        C
I turned my collar to the cold and damp
        F                                        C
When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
                     Am   C
That split the night
                G        Am
And touched the sound of silence.

[Verse 3]
Am                           G
   And in the naked light I saw
                           Am
Ten thousand people, maybe more.
                   F       C
People talking without speaking,
                   F        C
People hearing without listening,
               F                       C
People writing songs that voices never share
                 Am  C
And no one dare
            G        Am
Disturb the sound of silence.

[Verse 4]
Am                           G
   Fools said i, you do not know
                      Am
Silence like a cancer grows.
                     F           C
Hear my words that I might teach you,
                    F           C
Take my arms that I might reach you.
       F                            C     Am 
But my words like silent raindrops fell,
        C
And echoed
        G        Am
In the wells of silence

[Verse 5]
Am                            G
   And the people bowed and prayed
                     Am
To the neon God they made.
                         F       C
And the sign flashed out it's warning,
                      F     C
In the words that it was forming.
                       F
And the sign said, the words of the prophets
                           C
Are written on the subway walls
             C       Am
And tenement halls.
         C           G         Am
And whispered in the sounds of silence.
