The Sound of Silence  Paul Simon

Hello darkness my old [G]friend
I've come to talk with you a[Asus2]gain
Because a [C]vision soft[F]ly cree[C]ping
Left it's [F]seeds while I was [C]sleeping
And the [F]vision that was planted in my [C]brain
[F]Still re[C]mains......[Am].....
[C]Within the [G]sound of [Asus2]silence

In restless dreams I walked a[G]lone
Narrow streets of cobble[Asus2]stone
Beneath the [C]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 [F]split the [C]night......[Am].....
[C]And touched the [G]sound of [Asus2]silence

And in the naked light I [G]saw
Ten thousand people, maybe [Asus2]more
People [C]talking with[F]out spea[C]king
People hearing with[F]out liste[C]ning
People writing [F]songs that voices never [C]shared
And [F]no one [C]dared......[Am].....
[C]Disturb the [G]sound of [Asus2]silence
"Fools!" said I, "you do not [G]know
Silence like a cancer [Asus2]grows
Hear my [C]words that I [F]might teach [C]you
Take my [F]arms that I might reach out to [C]you"
But my [F]words like silent raindrops [C]fell......[F]......[g]......[C]......[Am]...........g (xx000x)
And [C]echoed [F]......[g]......[C]......[G] the wells of [Asus2]silence
And the people bowed and [G]prayed
To the neon god they [Asus2]made
And the [C]sign flashed [F]its war[C]ning
In the words that it [F]was for[C]ming
And the sign said "The [F]words of the prophets are written on the subway [C]walls
And [F]tenement [C]halls"......[Am].....
And [C]whispered in the [G]sound of [Asus2]silence
