Verse 1:
A chord diagramE minorEm                        A chord diagramD MajorD
   Hello darkness, my old friend,
                           A chord diagramE minorEm
I've come to talk with you again,
                     A chord diagramC majorC       A chord diagramG+G
Because a vision softly creeping,
                       A chord diagramC majorC       A chord diagramG+G
Left its seeds while I was sleeping,
        A chord diagramC majorC                             A chord diagramG+G
And the vision that was planted in my brain
            G/F# A chord diagramE minorEm
Still remains
A chord diagramG+G           A chord diagramD MajorD        A chord diagramE minorEm
Within the sound of silence.


Verse 2:
                        A chord diagramD MajorD
In restless dreams I walked alone
                        A chord diagramE minorEm
Narrow streets of cobblestone,
                   A chord diagramC majorC        A chord diagramG+G
'neath the halo of a street lamp,
                          A chord diagramC majorC        A chord diagramG+G
I turned my collar to the cold and damp
        A chord diagramC majorC                                        A chord diagramG+G
When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
                    G/F# A chord diagramE minorEm
That split the night
 A chord diagramG+G              A chord diagramD MajorD        A chord diagramE minorEm
And touched the sound of silence.

Verse 3:
                         A chord diagramD MajorD
And in the naked light I saw
                           A chord diagramE minorEm
Ten thousand people, maybe more.
                   A chord diagramC majorC       A chord diagramG+G
People talking without speaking,
                   A chord diagramC majorC        A chord diagramG+G
People hearing without listening,
               A chord diagramC majorC                       A chord diagramG+G
People writing songs that voices never share
              G/F# A chord diagramE minorEm
And no one dare
A chord diagramG+G           A chord diagramD MajorD        A chord diagramE minorEm
Disturb the sound of silence.


Verse 4:
                         A chord diagramD MajorD
Fools said I, you do not know
                      A chord diagramE minorEm
Silence like a cancer grows.
                     A chord diagramC majorC           A chord diagramG+G
Hear my words that I might teach you,
                    A chord diagramC majorC           A chord diagramG+G
Take my arms that I might reach you.
       A chord diagramC majorC                           A chord diagramG+G   G/F# A chord diagramE minorEm
But my words like silent raindrops fell,
   A chord diagramG+G
And echoed
       A chord diagramD MajorD        A chord diagramE minorEm
In the wells of silence


Verse 5:
                         A chord diagramD MajorD
And the people bowed and prayed
                     A chord diagramE minorEm
To the neon God they made.
                         A chord diagramC majorC      A chord diagramG+G
And the sign flashed out its warning,
                      A chord diagramC majorC     A chord diagramG+G
In the words that it was forming.
                       A chord diagramC majorC
And the sign said, the words of the prophets
                           A chord diagramG+G
Are written on the subway walls
             A chord diagramG+G     G/F# A chord diagramE minorEm
And tenement halls.
         A chord diagramG+G           A chord diagramD MajorD         A chord diagramE minorEm
And whisper'd in the sounds of silence.
