    EmD
    Hello darkness, my old friend, 
    Em
    I've come to talk with you again, 
    CG
    Because a vision softly creeping, 
    EmCG
    Left its seeds while I was sleeping, 
    CGEm
    And the visions that was planted in my brain, still remains 
    DEm
    Within the sound of silence 
    D
    In restless dreams I walked alone 
    Em
    Narrow streets of cobblestone, 
    CG
    'Neath the halo of a street lamp, 
    EmCG
    I turned my collar to the cold and damp 
    CG
    When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of the neon light 
    Em
    That split the night 
    DEm
    And touched the sound of silence 
    D
    And in the naked light I saw 
    Em
    Ten thousand people, maybe more 
    CG
    People talking without speaking, 
    EmCG
    People hearning without listening, 
    CG
    People writing songs that voices never share 
    Em
    And no one dare 
    DEm
    Disturb the sound of silence 
    D
    "Fools" said I, "You do not know 
    Em
    Silence like a cancer grows 
    CG
    Hear my words that I might teach you, 
    EmCG
    Take my arms that I might reach you" 
    CGEm
    But my words like silent raidrops fell, 
    G
    And echoed 
    DEm
    In the walls of silence 
    D
    And the people bowed and prayed 
    Em
    To the neon god they made 
    CG
    And the sing flashed out is warning, 
    EmCG
    In the words that is was forming 
    And the sign said
    C
    "The words of the prophets 
    G
    Are written on the subway walls 
    Em
    And tenement halls 
    GDEm
    And whispered in the sound of silence. 
    O da música é Ebm.
