Simon and Garfunkel  *

Capo I

A chord diagramDmDm                    A chord diagramC majorC                                 A chord diagramDmDm
Hello darkness my old friend, I've come to talk to you again.
          A chord diagramFF          A chord diagramBb majorBb      A chord diagramFF
Because a vision softly creeping,
                       A chord diagramBb majorBb       A chord diagramFF
left its seeds while I was sleeping
        A chord diagramBb majorBb                            A chord diagramFF
And the vision that was planted in my brain,
        A chord diagramDmDm     A chord diagramFF          A chord diagramC majorC        A chord diagramDmDm
still remains, within the sound of silence.

A chord diagramDmDm                           A chord diagramC majorC                                    A chord diagramDmDm
In restless dreams I walked alone through narrow streets of cobblestone.
            A chord diagramFF       A chord diagramBb majorBb       A chord diagramFF
Beneath the halo of a street lamp,
                          A chord diagramBb majorBb       A chord diagramFF
I turned my collar to the cold and damp.
        A chord diagramBb majorBb                                       A chord diagramFF
When my eyes were stabbed by a flash of the neon light,
              A chord diagramDmDm     A chord diagramFF               A chord diagramC majorC        A chord diagramDmDm
and split the night, and touched the sound of silence.

A chord diagramDmDm                       A chord diagramC majorC                              A chord diagramDmDm
And in the naked light I saw, ten thousand people maybe more.
       A chord diagramFF           A chord diagramBb majorBb       A chord diagramFF
People talking without speaking,
                   A chord diagramBb majorBb        A chord diagramFF
people hearing without listening.
               A chord diagramBb majorBb                      A chord diagramFF
People writing songs that voices never shared,
       A chord diagramDmDm     A chord diagramFF           A chord diagramC majorC        A chord diagramDmDm
no one dared, disturb the sound of silence.

A chord diagramDmDm                           A chord diagramC majorC                           A chord diagramDmDm
"Fools," said I, "you do not know, silence like a cancer grows.
        A chord diagramFF            A chord diagramBb majorBb          A chord diagramFF
Hear my words that I might teach you,
                    A chord diagramBb majorBb          A chord diagramFF
take my arms that I might reach you."
       A chord diagramBb majorBb                          A chord diagramFF
But my words like silent raindrops fell,
A chord diagramDmDm            A chord diagramC majorC        A chord diagramDmDm
echoed in the wells of silence.

A chord diagramDmDm                       A chord diagramC majorC                            A chord diagramDmDm
And the people bowed and prayed, to the neon god they made.
        A chord diagramFF                A chord diagramBb majorBb       A chord diagramFF
And the sign flashed out it's warning,
                     A chord diagramBb majorBb      A chord diagramFF
in the words that it was forming.  And the sign said:
     A chord diagramBb majorBb                                              A chord diagramFF
"The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls;
             A chord diagramDmDm          A chord diagramFF             A chord diagramC majorC         A chord diagramDmDm
and tenement halls," and whispered the sounds of silence.
