	  		Intro: G 
     
                     G4 G       
Starry, starry night  
                   Am       A9   Am 
Paint your palette blue and gray      
              C                  
Look out on a summer's day 
     D7                                G 
With eyes that know the darkness in my soul      
                     G4 G     
Shadows on the hills  
                         Am        A9 Am 
Sketch the trees and the daffodils      
                          C                 
Catch the breeze and the winter chills 
   D7                        G    C G 
In colors on the snowy linen land      
            Am    D7                   G   G/F#  Em      
Now I understand,    what you tried to say to me      
                              Am     D7       
And how you suffered for your sanity      
                          Em     
How you tried to set them free      
                                A7           Am7       
They would not listen, they did not know how      
   D7                  G   G4 G  
Perhaps they'll listen now    
                     G G4 G                      
Starry, starry night  
                     Am       A9    Am  
Flaming flowers that brightly blaze      
                   C                
Swirling clouds in violet haze  
  D7                               G 
Reflect in Vincent's eyes of china blue      
                    G4 G     
Colors changing hue  
                  Am    A9    Am 
Morning fields of amber grain      
                C                  
Weathered faces lined in pain  
    D7                                  G 
Are soothed beneath the artist's loving hand      
            Am    D7                   G   G/F#  Em      
Now I understand,    what you tried to say to me      
                              Am     D7       
And how you suffered for your sanity      
                          Em     
How you tried to set them free      
                                A7           Am7       
They would not listen, they did not know how      
   D7                  G     
Perhaps they'll listen now    
                   Am       D7       
For they could not love you  
                        G    Em  
But still your love was true      
            Am                         
And when no hope was left inside  
         Cm 
On that starry, starry night      
    G                 F            E7           
You took your life as lovers often do  
                 Am  
But I could have told you, Vincent      
     C                                 D7           G   C G    
This world was never meant for one as, beautiful as you      
                     G4 G    
Starry, starry night  
                  Am    A9    Am 
Portraits hung in empty halls      
                   C 
Frameless heads on nameless walls  
     D7                                     G 
With eyes that watch the world and can't forget 
                                   G4 G 
Like the strangers that you've met 
                  Am     A9      Am 
The ragged men in ragged clothes 
                  C        
A silver thorn, a bloody rose  
    D7                                G   
Lie crushed and broken on the virgin snow      
              Am    D7                   G   G/F#  Em      
Now I think I know,    what you tried to say to me      
                              Am     D7       
And how you suffered for your sanity      
                          Em     
How you tried to set them free     
                                   A7              Am7       
They would not listen, they're not listening still      
   D7              G     
Perhaps they never will...
