Intro: A5(9) 

Verse 1:

A5(9) G Hello, darkness, my old friend Am I've come to talk with you again C F C C/G Because a vision softly creeping Left its seeds while F C C/G I was sleeping F And the vision that was planted in my C Brain Am Still remains C G A5(9) Am Within the sound of silence

Verse 2:

G In restless dreams I walked alone Am Narrow streets of cobblestone C F C 'Neath the halo of a street lamp F C I turned my collar to the cold and damp F When my eyes were stabbed by the flash C Of a neon light Am That split the night C G Am And touched the sound of silence

Verse 3:

G And in the naked light I saw Am Ten thousand people, maybe more C F C People talking without speaking F C People hearing without listening F People writing songs that voices never C Share Am And no one dare C G Am Disturb the sound of silence

Verse 4:

G Fools, said I, you do not know Am Silence like a cancer grows C F C Hear my words that I might teach you F C Take my arms that I might reach you F C But my words like silent raindrops fell Am G Am And echoed in the wells of silence

Verse 5:

G And the people bowed and prayed Am To the neon god they made C F C And the sign flashed out its warning F C In the words that it was forming And the sign said F The words of the prophets are written C On the subway walls Am And tenement halls C G A5(9) And whispered in the sound of silence
Final: A5(9)/E
