Capo in fret 5


Capo on 6 fret

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

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

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

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

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