Starry Starry Night (ver 2)

Don McLean

 GGG
 Starry, starry  night, paint your palette
 AmAmCmaj7
 Blue and grey, Look out on a    summer's day,
 D7
with eyes that know the darkness in my
 GG
 soul Shadows on the hills,
 CA
 Sketch the trees and the daffodills
 CA
Catch the breeze and thewinter chills, in
 DDG
 colors on the snowy linen land
 GAA
 now I under stand what you tried to
 GAA
 Say to me,  how you suffered for your sanity
 CG
How you tried to set them free, 
 CCA
 they would not listen, they did not know how,     
 DG
   Perhaps they'll listen        now


 GGG
 Starry, starry  night, flaming flowers that
 AAC
 Brightly blaze, swirling clouds in violet haze
 DDG
 Reflect in Vincent�s eyes of China Blue   
 GG
 Colors changing hue, 
 CA
 Morning fields of amber grain
 CA
 Weathered faces lined with pain
 DDG
 Are soothed beneath the artists loving hand     
 GAA
 And now I under stand what you tried to
 GAA
 say to me,  how you suffered for your sanity  

 CG
 How you tried to set them free,
 CA
 they would not listen, they did not know how,
 DG
 Perhaps they'll listen  now     


 C
For they could not love you,
 CG
 but still your love was true   
 CC
 And when no     hope was left in sight
 CC
On that starry, starry night,
 GGG
you took your life as lovers often do
 AC
 But I could have told you, Vincent, this world was
 DG
Never meant for one as beautiful as     you


 GGG
 Starry, starry  night, portraits hung in
 AC
 Empty halls, frameless heads on nameless walls
 DDG
 with eyes that watch the world and can�t forget
 GG
 Like the strangers that you�ve met
 CA
 The ragged men in ragged clothes
 CA
The silver thorn the bloody rose, lie
 DDG
 Crushed and broken on the virgin snow 
 GAA
 now I think I know, what you tried to
 GAA
 say to me,  how you suffered for your sanity
 CG
How you tried to set them free,
 CA
 They would not listen, they�re not listening still,
 DG
 Perhaps they never will�
