- Capo on 2nd
Tuning: Standard (E A D G B E) Difficulty: Novice Verse 1: E minorEm D MajorD Hello darkness, my old friend, E minorEm I've come to talk with you again, C majorC G+G Because a vision softly creeping, C majorC G+G Left its seeds while I was sleeping, C majorC G+G And the vision that was planted in my brain G/F# E minorEm Still remains G+G D MajorD E minorEm Within the sound of silence. Verse 2: D MajorD In restless dreams I walked alone E minorEm Narrow streets of cobblestone, C majorC G+G 'neath the halo of a street lamp, C majorC G+G I turned my collar to the cold and damp C majorC G+G When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light G/F# E minorEm That split the night G+G D MajorD E minorEm And touched the sound of silence.
Verse 3: D MajorD And in the naked light I saw E minorEm Ten thousand people, maybe more. C majorC G+G People talking without speaking, C majorC G+G People hearing without listening, C majorC G+G People writing songs that voices never share G/F# E minorEm And no one dare G+G D MajorD E minorEm Disturb the sound of silence. Verse 4: D MajorD Fools said I, you do not know E minorEm Silence like a cancer grows. C majorC G+G Hear my words that I might teach you, C majorC G+G Take my arms that I might reach you. C majorC G+G G/F# E minorEm But my words like silent raindrops fell, G+G And echoed D MajorD E minorEm In the wells of silence Verse 5: D MajorD And the people bowed and prayed E minorEm To the neon God they made. C majorC G+G And the sign flashed out its warning, C majorC G+G In the words that it was forming. C majorC And the sign said, the words of the prophets G+G Are written on the subway walls G+G G/F# E minorEm And tenement halls. G+G D MajorD E minorEm And whisper'd in the sounds of silence.
