##Vincent (Don McLean)Starry, starry [G]night, paint your palette [Am]blue and grey
Look out on a [C]summer's day, with [D7]eyes that know the darkness in my [G]soul
Shadows on the hills, sketch the trees and [Am]daffodills
Catch the breeze and [C]winterchills, in [D7]colors on the snowly linnen [G]land [C]   [G]
And now I under[Am]stand what you tried to [G]say to me,[Em]   how you suffered for your [Am7]sanity
D7 Em // stop A7 Am7
How you tried to set them free, they would not listen, they did not know how
[D7]  Perhaps they'll listen [G]now

Starry, starry [G]night, flaming flow'rs that brightly [Am]blaze
Swirling clouds in [C]violet haze re[D7]flect in Vincent's eyes of China [G]blue
Colors changing hue, morning fields of [Am]amber grain
Weathered faces [C]lined inpain, are [D7]soothed beneath the artist's loving [G]hand [C]   [G]
And now I under[Am]stand what you tried to [G]say to me,[Em]    how you suffered for your [Am7]sanity
D7 Em // stop A7 Am7
How you tried to set them free, they would not listen, they did not know how
[D7]  Perhaps they'll listen [G]now

For they could not [Am7]love you,[D7]   but still your love was [G]true
[Em]  And when no [Am7]hope was left in sight on that [Cm6]starry, starry night, you [G]took your life as [F7]lovers often [E7]do
But I [Am7]could have told you, Vincent, this [C]world was never meant for one as [D7]beautifull as [G]you

Starry, starry [G]night, portraits hung in empty [Am]halls
Frameless heads on [C]nameless walls, with [D7]eyes that watch the world and can't for[G]get
Like the strangers that you've met, the ragged men in [Am]ragged clothes
The silver thorn of [C]bloody rose, lie [D7]crushed and broken on the virgin [G]snow [C]   [G]
And now I think I [Am]know, what you tried to [G]say to me,[Em]   how you suffered for your [Am7]sanity
D7 Em // stop A7 Am7
How you tried to set them free, they would not listen, they're not listening still
[D7]  Perhaps they never [G]will [C]   [G]
