Nights In White Satin Moody Blues
Slow strum in 3 time:   Am                 G             Am                    G    Nights in white satin,           never reaching the end.  F                  C             Bb                    Am    Letters  I've   written,         never  meaning  to send. Am                 G             Am                    G    Beauty   I've   always missed,   with  these  eyes  before. F                  C             Bb                    Am    Just what  the  truth is,        I  can't  say   anymore.  But I ... 
[Chorus] D                  D             F                     F  Love you.                 Yes, I love you.             Oh how I  Am                 G             Am                    G  Love you......
[Solo, see below]
Gazing at people, some hand in hand. Just what I'm going through they can't understand. Some try to tell me thoughts they cannot defend. Just what you want to be, you'll be in the end.   [Chorus] [Chorus]

============================================================= I arranged the song in Am using barre chords to match the  original chord centers:
Am: 577555 G:  355433 F:  133211 C:  332010 Bb: x13331  or  688766 
While NIWS is generally played with a strum (on solo  guitar) to imitate the original sleepy sound of the Melotron,  the song can be rearranged slightly for a more delicate sound  using arpegiated chords: 
    Am (barre 5): E||---------------------------|-- B||-------5-----------5-------|-- G||-----5---5-------5---5-----|-- D||---7-------7---7-------7---|--      etc, etc A||-------------7-------------|-- E||-5-------------------------|--
