NIGHTS IN WHITE SATIN
Moody Blues
  [Em]  Nights in white [D]satin   [Em]    never reaching the [D]end
[C]  Letters I've [G]written    [F]    never meaning to [Em]send
[Em]  Beauty I'd [D]always missed[Em]    with these eyes be[D]fore
[C]  Just what the [G]truth is  [F]    I can't say any[Em]more
CHORUS
Cause I [A]love you, yes I [C]love you
Ohhh how I [Em]love you[D] [Em] [D]
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

Peace, love, and soul,

Nights In White Satin
Moody Blues
Slow strum in 3 time:
  [Am]   Nights in white [G]satin,        [Am]   never reaching the [G]end.
[F]   Letters  I've   [C]written,      [Bb]   never  meaning  to [Am]send.
[Am]   Beauty   I've   [G]always missed,[Am]   with  these  eyes  [G]before.
[F]   Just what  the  [C]truth is,     [Bb]   I  can't  say   any[Am]more.  But I ...
(Chorus)
[D]Love you.          [D]       Yes, I [F]love you.             [F]Oh how I
[Am]Love you......[G] [Am] [G]
(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)

[Am]       [G]       [Am]    =============================================================
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-------------------------|--

Also, change the "F" chorde to a "Fmaj7", sounds better and that's the way we use to play back in the 60's.
