Sounds Of Silence Chords

The chords for “The Sound of Silence” by Simon & Garfunkel are as follows:

Verse:
D G
Hello darkness, my old friend
D G
I’ve come to talk with you again
D G
Because a vision softly creeping
D G
Left its seeds while I was sleeping
D G
And the vision that was planted in my brain
D G
Still remains
D G
Within the sound of silence

Chorus:
C G
In restless dreams I walked alone
Am F
Narrow streets of cobblestone
C G
‘Neath the halo of a street lamp
Am F
I turned my collar to the cold and damp
C G
When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
Am F
That split the night
C G
And touched the sound of silence

Verse:
D G
And in the naked light I saw
D G
Ten thousand people, maybe more
D G
People talking without speaking
D G
People hearing without listening
D G
People writing songs that voices never shared
D G
No one dared
D G
Disturb the sound of silence

Chorus:
C G
“Fools,” said I, “you do not know
Am F
Silence like a cancer grows
C G
Hear my words that I might teach you
Am F
Take my arms that I might reach you”
C G
But my words, like silent raindrops fell
Am F
And echoed
C G
In the wells of silence

Outro:
D G
And the people bowed and prayed
D G
To the neon god they made
D G
And the sign flashed out its warning
D G
In the words that it was forming
D G
And the sign said “The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls”
D G
And whispered in the sounds of silence

Note: The verse and chorus chords repeat throughout the song.
