[Verse 1]

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


[Verse 2]

Am                               G    
     In restless dreams I walked alone
G                             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  
That split the night
                 G        Am
And touched the sound of silence


[Verse 3]

Am                              G    
      And in the naked light I saw
G                                 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 
And no one dared
             G        Am
Disturb the sound of silence


[Verse 4]

Am                                  G  
     "Fools", said I, "You do not know
G                            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
G                           Am
      To the neon god they made
                         F       C
And the sign flashed out its warning
                      F      C
In the words that it was forming
                         F                                              C
And the sign said, "The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls
                        Am   
And tenement halls"
      C               G         Am
And whispered in the sounds of silence
