    AmG
    Hello darkness, my old friend, 
    Am
    I've come to talk with you again, 
    FC
    Because a vision softly creeping, 
    FC
    Left it's seeds while I was sleeping, 
    FC
    And the vision that was planted in my brain 
    Am
    Still remains 
    GAm
    Within the sound of silence. 
    G
    In restless dreams I walked alone 
    Am
    Narrow streets of cobblestone, 
    FC
    'neath the halo of a street lamp, 
    FC
    I turned my collar to the cold and damp 
    FC
    When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light 
    Am
    That split the night 
    GAm
    And touched the sound of silence. 
    G
    And in the naked light I saw 
    Am
    Ten thousand people, maybe more. 
    FC
    People talking without speaking, 
    FC
    People hearing without listening, 
    FC
    People writing songs that voices never share 
    Am
    And no one dare 
    GAm
    Disturb the sound of silence. 
    G
    Fools said i, you do not know 
    Am
    Silence like a cancer grows. 
    FC
    Hear my words that I might teach you, 
    FC
    Take my arms that I might reach you. 
    FC
    But my words like silent raindrops fell, 
    Am
    And echoed 
    GAm
    In the wells of silence 
    G
    And the people bowed and prayed 
    Am
    To the neon God they made. 
    FC
    And the sign flashed out it's warning, 
    FC
    In the words that it was forming. 
    F
    And the sign said, the words of the prophets 
    AmC
    Are written on the subway walls 
    C
    And tenement halls. 
    GAm
    And whisper'd in the sounds of silence. 
    There are only 4 chords in the WHOLE song!!
