   sounds                     of silence


I think that this intro is 98% correct, and I must say that
it was very tough tabbing it down.

Everything else is strummed chords only, and some little riffs 
which I hope I'll send few months after. 

Have a nice time.


CHORDS & LYRICS:

                              G
In restless dreams I walked alone
                            Am  C
narrow streets of cobblestone,
                   F           C
'neath the halo of a street lamb,
                           F        C
I turned my collar to the cold and damp
         F                                         C
when my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
  F   F/E         C  C/B  Am  C
that split the night,
                  G        Am
and touched the sound of silence.

And in the naked light I saw
ten thousand people maybe more,
people talking without speaking,
people hearing without listening,
people writing songs that voices never share
and no one dared
disturb the sound of silence.

Fool, said I, you do not know
silence like a cancer grows
hear my words that I might teach you
take my arms that I might reach you,
but my words like silent raindrops fell
and echoed
in the sounds of silence.

And the people bowed and prayed
to the neon god they made,
and the sign flashed out its warning
in the words that it was forming,
and the sign said "the words of the prophets
are written on the subway walls 
and tenement halls
and whisper'd in the sounds of silence".


The song ends with the electric guitar:

e---------------------------6--|
B--6---7---6---7-----------7---|
G----8---8---8---8-------8-----|
D----------------------8-------|
A--------------------6---------|
E------------------6-----------|  strum the chord, as in the end of the intro.
