Song Author Paul Simon Lyrics by: Paul Simon Performer: Simon and Garfunkel Submitted by: Larus
Capo on 6th. fret

[Am]    [Asus2]    [Am]    [Asus2]    
[Am]Hello darkness my old [G]friend,
I've come to talk with you a[Am]gain. [Asus2]    [Am]    [Asus2]    [Am]    
Because a [C]vision softl[F]y creep[C]ing  
Left it's seed while I [F]was sleep[C]ing,
And the [F]vision that was planted in my [C]brain
Still remains [Am]    
[C]Within the [G]sounds of [Am]silence. [Asus2]    [Am]    [Asus2]    [Am]    

In restless dreams I walked a[G]lone,
Narrow streets of cobble [Am]stone. [Asus2]    [Am]    [Asus2]    [Am]    
Neath the halo of [F]a street [C]lamp,
I turned my collar to the [F]cold and [C]damp,
When my [F]eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon [C]light
That split the night [Am]    
[C]And touched the [G]sounds of [Am]silence. [Asus2]    [Am]    [Asus2]    [Am]    

And in the naked light I [G]saw  
Ten thousand people, maybe [Am]more. [Asus2]    [Am]    [Asus2]    [Am]    
People talking with[F]out speak[C]ing,
People hearing with[F]out listen[C]ing,
People writing [F]songs that voices never [C]shared,
And no one dared [Am]    
[C]Disturb the [G]sounds of [Am]silence. [Asus2]    [Am]    [Asus2]    [Am]    

"Fools!" said I, "you do not [G]know,
Silence like a cancer [Am]grows. [Asus2]    [Am]    [Asus2]    [Am]    
Hear my words that I [F]might teach [C]you,
Take my arms that I [F]might reach out to [C]you."
But my [F]words like silent raindrops [C]fell [Am]    
And [C]echoed in the [G]wells of [Am]silence. [Asus2]    [Am]    [Asus2]    [Am]    

And the people bowed and [G]prayed
To the neon gods they [Am]made. [Asus2]    [Am]    [Asus2]    [Am]    
And the sign flashed out [F]its warn[C]ing,
In the words that it [F]was form[C]ing,
And the sign said, "The [F]words of the prophets are written on the subway [C]walls
And tenement halls." [Am]    
And [C]whispered in the [G]sounds of [Am]silence. [Asus2]    [Am]    [Asus2]    [Am]    

Capo on 6th. fret


Hello darkness my old friend,
I've come to talk with you again.
Because a vision softly creeping
Left it's seed while I was sleeping,
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Still remains
Within the sounds of silence.

In restless dreams I walked alone,
Narrow streets of cobble stone.
Neath the halo of a street lamp,
I turned my collar to the cold and damp,
When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
That split the night
And touched the sounds of silence.

And in the naked light I saw
Ten thousand people, maybe more.
People talking without speaking,
People hearing without listening,
People writing songs that voices never shared,
And no one dared
Disturb the sounds of silence.

"Fools!" said I, "you do not know,
Silence like a cancer grows.
Hear my words that I might teach you,
Take my arms that I might reach out to you."
But my words like silent raindrops fell
And echoed in the wells of silence.

And the people bowed and prayed
To the neon gods they made.
And the sign flashed out its warning,
In the words that it was forming,
And the sign said, "The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls
And tenement halls."
And whispered in the sounds of silence.
