Listen to strumming patterns in the song to get the hang of it.

C
Pray for them

I often loose track
     Am
So I took a drag
      G/E
of my first cigarrette
      C
and I found my head

Roll down the dumps
   C*     G/E*
of twenty seventh street


  C
I drew a sketch

with lipstick and sidewalk
   Am
of Newports edge
G/E
Legoblock cliffs
       F
and an ocean that doesn't
  Fmaj7               G
deserve the sounds of silence

I'd swear on a dead artists grave


Am
I found a spot
          G/E
where the drunk never got to
   C**
it rocks me gently silent, silent
   Am
If I never surface
G/E
it doesn't matter
C**
Hold my breath

It's silent, silent


C
Diligent

Escape by the water
Am
Not sick of it
   G/E
It only gets harder
C
That's no excuse

to block all the cliches and
C*     G/E*
reason for kicks


C
He strokes her hair

both sitting on sand
        Am
and her shoulders bare
  G/E
nothing to demand of them
C
laying back on a lonely stone wall
    Am             G/E
and passersby look passed it all


Am
I found a spot
          G/E
where the drunk never got to
   C**
it rocks me gently silent, silent
   Am
If I never surface
G/E
it doesn't matter
C**
Hold my breath

It's silent, silent

[Lead] [muting makes it sound more percussive by strumming it, parts are played more but 
the gist of it]
   Play twice  Play twice

Am        [stop]
I found a spot
         G/E        [stop]
that the drunk never got to
   C**
It rocks me gently silent, silent
   Am
If I never surface
G/E
it doesn't matter
C**
Hold my breath

It's silent, silent, now

[end]
