The Sound Of Silence – Simon & Garfunkel  
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YZGayaTPQ4I 
(Capo 1 for original)

(Intro):    (Play notes):  
d,  a,  c#,  g#,    (x2)  

(Verse 1)
Am    C         Am     G                    G7        Dm    Am  
Hello darkness  my old friend, I've come to talk with you a-gain,  
C         Am     C        F     C               Am          C      F         C  
Because a vision softly - y creeping, left it’s seeds while I wa - as slee - ping,  
        Am           G7  F         G7 Am  C       Am    Am7   C      
And the vision, that was planted,  in my  brain, still  rem - ains, 
Am         G      G7  C     Am              
Within the sound, of  sil - ence.  

(Verse 2)  
            C        Am      G            G7         Dm     Am  
In restless dreams I walked alone, narrow streets of cobble-stone,  
C          Am   C     F          C                 Am     C      F        C  
'Neath the halo of  a new street lamp, I turned my collar to the cold and damp,  
        Am                     G7  F          G7   Am  C           Am    Am7  C 
When my eyes, were stabbed, by the flash of a ne - on  light, that split the  night,  
Am              G      G7  C    Am 
And touched the sound, of  si - lence.  
 
(Verse 3)
           C     Am      G                 G7     Dm    Am  
And in the naked light I saw, ten thousand people maybe more,  
C      Am          C    F       C            Am          C    F         C                 
People talking withou - out speaking, people hearing withou - out  listening,  
               Am     G7   F       G7   Am  C          Am   Am7 C     
People writing songs, that voices, ne - ver share, and no - one dare,  
Am          G      G7  C     Am              
Disturb the sound, of  sil - ence.  

(Verse 4)  
           C      Am     G             G7     Dm     Am 
Fools said I, you do not know, silence like a cancer grows,  
C       Am         C      F         C            Am        C      F        C  
Hear my words that I mi - ght teach you, take my arms that I mi -ght reach you,  
       Am     G7   F      G7  Am    C         Am    Am7  C     
But my words, like silent raindrops fell, and ech – oed, in,   
Am   G     G7  C     Am
The  wells of  sil - ence.  

(Verse 5)  
        C      Am        G              G7   Dm       Am  
And the people bowed and prayed, to the neon God they made,  
C       Am           C             F     C           Am         C            F    C                 
And the sign flashed out it's wa – arn - ing, in the words that it was for – or - ming,  
        Am                          G7  F                       G7  Am  C          Am  Am7  C     
And the sign, said the words of the prophets are written on the sub-way walls, and tenement halls,  
Am            G   G7              C     Am           
And whispered in, the sound  of   sil - ence.  (slowing)
