SIMON & GARFUNKEL – The sound of silence

(тональность оригинала – Ebm)

C#m                         H

  Hello Darkness, my old friend,


  I've come to talk with you again,

             E          A      E

  Because a vision softly creeping

                          A       E

  Left its seeds while I was sleeping

           A                              E

  And the vision that was planted in my brain

    A      E   E/D# C#m E             H        C#m

  Still remains           within the sounds of silence.



  In restless dreams I walked alone


  Narrow streets of cobblestone,

              E      A         E

  'Neath the halo of a street lamp,

                             A        E 

  I turned my collar to the cold and damp

          A                                         E

  When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light

          A       E    E/D# C#m

  That split the night

E                  H       C#m      

  And touched the sound of silence.


  And in the naked light I saw                 C#m H

  Ten thousand people, maybe more.             H C#m

  People talking without speaking,             E A E

  People hearing without listening,            E A E

  People writing songs that voices never share A E

  And no one dared                             A E ~ E/D# C#m

  Disturb the sound of silence.                E H C#m


  "Fools" said I,"You do not know              C#m H

  Silence like a cancer grows.                 H C#m

  Hear my words that I might teach you,        E A E

  Take my arms that I might reach you."        E A E

  But my words like silent raindrops fell,     A E ~ A E E/D# C#m

  And echoed                                   C#m

  In the wells of silence                      E H C#m


  And the people bowed and prayed              C#m H

  To the neon god they made.                   H C#m

  And the sign flashed out its warning,        E A E

  In the words that it was forming.            E A E

  And the signs said, The words of the prophets      E A

  Are written on the subway walls              A E

  And tenement halls.                          A E ~ E/D# C#m

  And whisper'd in the sounds of silence.            E H C#m
