The Sound of Silence

Paul Simon

 Asus2

 G
 Hello darkness my old friend
 Asus2
 I've come to talk with you again
 CFC
 Because a vision softly creeping
 FC
 Left it's seed while I was sleeping
 FC
 And the vision that was planted in my brain
 FCAm
 Still remains......
 CGAsus2
 Within the sound of silence

 G
 In restless dreams I walked alone
 Asus2
 Narrow streets of cobblestone
 CFC
 Beneath the halo of a street lamp
 FC
 I turned my collar to the cold and damp
 FC
 When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
 FCAm
 That split the night......
 CGAsus2
 And touched the sound of silence

 G
 And in the naked light I saw
 Asus2
 Ten thousand people, maybe more
 CFC
 People talking without speaking
 FC
 People hearing without listening
 FC
 People writing songs that voices never shared
 FCAm
 And no one dared......
 CGAsus2
 Disturb the sound of silence

 G
"Fools!" said I, "you do not know
 Asus2
 Silence like a cancer grows
 CFC
 Hear my words that I might teach you
 FC
 Take my arms that I might reach out to you"
 FCFCAm
 But my words like silent raindrops fell..................
 CGAsus2
 And echoed in the wells of silence

 G
 And the people bowed and prayed
 Asus2
 To the neon god they made
 CFC
 And the sign flashed its warning
 FC
 In the words that it was forming
 FC
 And the sign said "The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls
 FCAm
 And tenement halls"......
 CGAsus2
 And whispered in the sound of silence
