[Verse 1]

Em                 D/A
Hello darkness, my old friend 
I've come to talk with you again 
                  C      G
Because a vision softly creeping 
          Em         C       G
Left its seeds while I was sleeping
Em      C               Csus2   C     G
And the vision that was planted in my brain
      Em                 D/A      Em
Still remains within the sound of silence

[Verse 2]

Em                          D/A
In restless dreams I walked alone
                  Em          (Em - Em7 - Em)
Narrow streets of cobblestone
                   C        G
'Neath the halo of a street lamp
             Em           C        G
I turned my collar to the cold and damp
        C                        Csus2    C      G
When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
     Em        G
That split the night
Em              D/A      Em
And touched the sound of silence

[Verse 3]
(Light strumming)

Em               D/A
And in the naked light I saw
                           Em          (Em - Em7 - Em)
Ten thousand people, maybe more
                C       G
People talking without speaking
       Em         C       G
People hearing without listening
               C          Csus2  C     G
People writing songs that voices never share
And no one dare
            D/A        Em
Disturb the sound of silence

[Verse 4]

Em                       D/A
Fools said I, you do not know
                      Em          (Em - Em7 - Em)
Silence like a cancer grows
                      C          G
Hear my words that I might teach you
        Em           C             G
Take my arms that I might reach to you
       C          Csus2  C         G
But my words like silent raindrops fell
Em                D/A      Em
And echoed in the wells of silence

[Verse 5]

Em                       D/A
And the people bowed and prayed
                     Em          (Em - Em7 - Em)
To the neon God they made
                     C            G
And the sign flashed out it's warning
        Em            C       G
And the words that it was forming

And the sign said 
     C                        Csus2          C       G
The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls
And tenement halls
                     D/A          Em 
And whispered in the sound of silence (Pick the last chord)


Em D/A Em

Yo I love this tab brotha or sista! I would say that for the D/A U would honestly just play a regular D chord and then for Csus2 I would play a Cadd9;


Great job though homie! :)
