Simon & Garfunkel - Sound of Silence
Dsus2 C Hello darkness, my old friend, Dsus2 I've come to talk with you again, Bb F Because a vision softly creeping, Bb F Left it's seeds while I was sleeping, Bb F And the vision that was planted in my brain Dsus2 Still remains C Dm Within the sound of silence.
C In restless dreams I walked alone Dm Narrow streets of cobblestone, Bb F 'neath the halo of a street lamp, Bb F I turned my collar to the cold and damp Bb F When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light Dm That split the night C Dm And touched the sound of silence.
C And in the naked light I saw Dm Ten thousand people, maybe more. Bb F People talking without speaking, Bb F People hearing without listening, Bb F People writing songs that voices never share Dm And no one dare C Dm Disturb the sound of silence.
C Fools said I, you do not know Dm Silence like a cancer grows. Bb F Hear my words that I might teach you, Bb F Take my arms that I might reach you. Bb F But my words like silent raindrops fell, And echoed C Dm In the wells of silence
C And the people bowed and prayed Dm To the neon God they made. Bb F And the sign flashed out it's warning, Bb F In the words that it was forming. Bb And the sign said, the words of the prophets Dm F Are written on the subway walls F And tenement halls. C Dm And whisper'd in the sounds of silence.
