Intro:
F C Ab C F C Ab C

Fm                       Eb  
Hello darkness, my old friend
                           Fm   
I've come to talk with you again
                    C#      Ab  
Because a vision softly creeping
                      C#      Ab   
Left its seeds while I was sleeping
       C#                      
And the vision that was planted
     Ab    
In my brain
           Ab/G  Fm
Still remains      
Ab         Eb        Fm    
Within the sound of silence

                       Eb        
In restless dreams I walked alone
                        Fm   
Narrow streets of cobblestone
                  C#       Ab   
'neath the halo of a street lamp
                             
I turned my collar 
      C#       Ab   
To the cold and damp
       C#                
When my eyes were stabbed
                      Ab    
By the flash of a neon light
                   Ab/G  Fm
That split the night       
 Ab            Eb        Fm     
And touched the sound of silence

                        Eb  
And in the naked light I saw
                           Fm  
Ten thousand people, maybe more
                  C#      Ab   
People talking without speaking
                  C#       Ab   
People hearing without listening
              C#    
People writing songs
                 Ab    
That voices never share
             Ab/G  Fm
And no one dare      
Ab         Eb        Fm     
Disturb the sound of silence

                        Eb   
Fools said I, you do not know
                      Fm   
Silence like a cancer grows
                    C#          Ab 
Hear my word that I might teach you
                   C#          Ab  
Take my arms that I might reach you
      C#                
But my words like silent
         Ab  Ab/G Fm
Raindrops fell      
  Ab      
And echoed
      Eb        Fm     
In the wells of silence

                        Eb     
And the people bowed and prayed
                     Fm  
To the neon God they made
                        C#     Ab  
And the sign flashed out it warning
                     C#    Ab   
In the words that it was forming
                       
And the sign said
   C#                    
The words of the prophets
                          Ab   
Are written on the subway walls
            Ab    Ab/G Fm
And tenement halls       
        Ab          Eb     
And whisper'd in the sounds
   Fm     
Of silence
