[Verse I]
F#m                      E
...Hello darkness, my old friend,
I've come to talk with you again,
                      D     A         
Because a vision softly creeping,
                         D      A                  
Left it's seeds while I was sleeping,
        D                             A
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Still remains
           E        F#m               
Within the sound of silence.

[Verse II]
   F#m                      E     
In restless dreams I walked alone
Narrow streets of cobblestone,
 F#m               D        A
'Neath the halo of a street lamp,
                          D        A
I turned my collar to the cold and damp
        D                                        A
When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
          F#m      A
That split the night
                E        F#m
And touched the sound of silence.

[Verse III]
F#m                      E
 And in the naked light I saw
Ten thousand people, maybe more.
                   D    A
People talking without speaking,
                   D        A
People hearing without listening,
               D                         A
People writing songs that voices never share
And no one dare
            E        F#m
Disturb the sound of silence.

[Verse IV]
F#m                     E
 Fools said I, you do not know
Silence like a cancer grows.
                       D         A
Hear my words that I might teach you,
                      D         A
Take my arms that I might reach you.
       D                           A
But my words like silent raindrops fell,
And echoed
       E        F#m
In the wells of silence

[Verse V]
F#m                      E
 And the people bowed and prayed
To the neon God they made.
                         D    A
And the sign flashed out it's warning,
                       D    A
In the words that it was forming.
And the sign said, the words of the prophets
Are written on the subway walls
And tenement halls.
                     E         F#m    
And whispered in the sounds of silence.
