Sound of Silence – Simon & Garfunkel Loading

The Sound of Silence è il titolo di una delle canzoni più famose di Simon & Garfunkel. Il chitarrista Paul Simon affermò in un’intervista che il verso iniziale “Hello, darkness my old friend” deriva dal fatto che nel periodo in cui scrisse il brano trovava conciliante comporre nel buio completo.

INTRO = REm

VERSE 1
========
REm                        DO
   Hello darkness, my old friend,
                           REm
I've come to talk with you again,
                     SIb      FA
Because a vision softly creeping,
                        SIb      FA
Left it's seeds while I was sleeping,
        SIb                            FA
And the vision that was planted in my brain
        REm
Still remains
           DO       REm
Within the sound of silence.
                             

VERSE 2
========
                             DO
In restless dreams I walked alone
                        REm
Narrow streets of cobblestone,
                   SIb       FA
'neath the halo of a street lamp,
                          SIb       FA
I turned my collar to the cold and damp
        SIb                                       FA
When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
               REm
That split the night
                DO       REm
And touched the sound of silence.


VERSE 3
========
                         DO
And in the naked light I saw
                           REm
Ten thousand people, maybe more.
                   SIb      FA
People talking without speaking,
                   SIb       FA
People hearing without listening,
               SIb                      FA
People writing songs that voices never share
           REm
And no one dare
            DO       REm
Disturb the sound of silence.


VERSE 4
========
                         DO
Fools said i, you do not know
                      REm
Silence like a cancer grows.
                     SIb          FA
Hear my words that I might teach you,
                    SIb          FA
Take my arms that I might reach you.
       SIb                          FA
But my words like silent raindrops fell,

And echoed
       DO       REm
In the wells of silence


VERSE 5
========
                         DO
And the people bowed and prayed
                     REm
To the neon God they made.
                         SIb      FA
And the sign flashed out it's warning,
                      SIb    FA
In the words that it was forming.
                       SIb
And the sign said, the words of the prophets
    REm                    FA
Are written on the subway walls
             FA
And tenement halls.
                     DO        REm
And whisper'd in the sounds of silence.
