Sound Of Silence by Simon and Garfunkel

Tabs

-4 -4 -5 -5 -6 -6 6
Hel- lo dark- ness my old friend
4 4 4 5 5 6 6 -5
I've come to talk with you ag- ain
-5 -5 -5 -6 -6 7 7 -8 7
Be- cause a vis- ion soft- ly creep- ing
-5 -5 -6 -6 7 7 -8 7
Left its seeds while I was sleep- ing
-5 -5 -8 -8 -8 8 -9 -9 8 -8 7
And the vis- ion that was plan- ted in my brain
-8 7 -6
Still rem- ains
-5 -5 -5 7 5 -5 -4
With- in the sound of si- lence
-4 -4 -4 -5 -5 -6 -6 6
In rest- less dreams I walked a- lone
4 4 5 5 6 6 -5
Nar- row streets of cob- ble- stone
-5 -5 -6 -6 7 7 -8 7
'Neath the ha- lo of a street lamp
-5 -5 -5 -6 -6 7 7 -8 -8 7
I turned my col- lar to the cold and damp
-5 -5 -8 -8 -8 -8 8 -9 -9 -9 8 -8 7
When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a ne- on light
7 -8 7 -6
That split the night
-5 -5 -5 7 5 -5 -4
And touched the sound of si- lence
-4 -4 -4 -5 -5 -6 -6 6
And in the na- ked light I saw
4 4 4 5 5 6 6 -5
Ten thou- sand peo- ple may- be more
-5 -5 -6 -6 7 7 -8 7
Peo- ple talk- ing with -out speak -ing
-5 -5 -6 -6 7 7 -8 -8 7
Peo- ple hear- ing with- out list- en- ing
-5 -5 -8 -8 -8 8 -9 -9 8 -8 7
Peo- ple wri- ting songs that voi- ces ne- ver share
7 -8 7 -6
And no one dare
-5 -5 -5 7 5 -5 -4
Dis- turb the sound of si- lence
-4 -4 -5 -5 -6 -6 6
"Fools" said I "You do not know
4 4 5 5 6 6 -5
Si- lence like a can- cer grow
-5 -5 -6 -6 7 7 -8 7
Hear my words that I might teach you
-5 -5 -6 -6 7 7 -8 7
Take my arms that I might reach you"
-5 -5 -8 8 -9 -9 8 -8 7
But my words like si- lent rain- drops fell
5 -5 -5
And ech- oed
-5 -5 7 5 -5 -4
In the wells of si- lence
-4 -4 -5 -5 -6 -6 6
And the peo- ple bowed and prayed
4 4 5 5 6 6 -5
To the ne- on god they made
-5 -5 -6 -6 7 7 -8 7
And the sign flashed out its warn- ing
-5 -5 -6 -6 7 7 -8 7
In the words that it was form- ing
-5 -5 -6 7 7 -8 -8 -8 -8 -8
And the sign said "The words of the proph- ets
8 -9 -9 -9 -9 8 -8 7
are writ- ten on the sub- way walls
7 -8 -8 7 -6
And ten- em- ent halls
5 -5 -5 -5 -5 7 5 -5 -4
And whis- per'd in the sounds of si- lence
