Sounds of silence guitar chords

Solo acoustic versions of “I Am a Rock”, “Leaves That Are Green”, “April Come She Will”, “A Most Peculiar Man”, and “Kathy’s Song” had appeared on The Paul Simon Songbook, released in August 1965 in England as had another version of the title track. “Richard Cory” was based on the poem “Richard Cory” by Edwin Arlington Robinson, “Somewhere They Can’t Find Me” was essentially a rewrite of the previous album’s “Wednesday Morning, 3 A. M. “, “We’ve Got a Groovy Thing Goin'” had appeared on the b-side of “The Sound of Silence” a few months before and “Anji” was a cover of an instrumental piece by guitarist Davey Graham whom Simon had met in England. Hence the only brand new Paul Simon composition on the album was “Blessed”.
