Chords and lyrics for Sounds Of Silence by Simon And Garfunkel

Am 
Hello darkness, my old
G 
friend,
 
I’ve come to talk with you  
Am 
again,
 
Because a vision soft
F 
ly 
 
creep
C 
ing,
 
Left it’s seeds while I  
F 
was 
 
slee
C 
ping,
 
And the  
F 
vision that was planted in my  
C 
brain
 
Still re
Am 
mains
 
Within the  
G 
sound of  
Am 
silence.
 
In restless dreams I walked a
G 
lone
 
Narrow streets of cobble
Am 
stone,
 
‘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  
Am 
night
 
And touched the  
G 
sound of  
Am 
silence.
 
And in the naked light I  
G 
saw
 
Ten thousand people, maybe  
Am 
more.
 
People talking with
F 
out 
 
spea
C 
king,
 
People hearing with
F 
out 
 
liste
C 
ning,
 
People writing  
F 
songs that voices never  
C 
share
 
And no one  
Am 
dare
 
Disturb the  
G 
sound of  
Am 
silence.
 
Fools said i, you do not  
G 
know
 
Silence like a cancer  
Am 
grows.
 
Hear my words that I  
F 
might teach  
C 
you,
 
Take my arms that I  
F 
might reach  
C 
you.
 
But my  
F 
words like silent raindrops  
C 
fell,
 
In the  
G 
wells of  
Am 
silence
 
And the people bowed and  
G 
prayed
 
To the neon God they  
Am 
made.
 
And the sign flashed out  
F 
it’s 
 
war
C 
ning,
 
In the words that it w
F 
as 
 
for
C 
ming.
 
And the sign said, the  
F 
words of the prophets
 
Are  
Am 
written on the subway
C 
walls
 
And tenement  
C 
halls.
 
And whisper’d in the  
G 
sounds of  
Am 
silence.
