Paint it black  Rolling Stones

[Am]                       [E7]   I see a red door and I want it painted black
[Am]                     [E7]   No colors any more I want them to turn black
[Am]   [G]       [C]                      [Am]   I see the girls walk by dressed in their summer clothes
[Am]   [G]        [C]        [G]         [D]        [E7]I  have to turn my head until the darkness goes
[Am]                         [E7]   I see a line of cars and they're all painted black
[Am]                              [E7]   With flowers and my love both never to come back
[Am]    [G]           [C]                     [Am]I   see people turn their heads and quickly look away
[Am]       [G]         [C]       [Ab6]      [D]       [E7]Like a new born baby it just happens every day
[Am]                         [E7]   I look inside myself and see my heart is black
[Am]                        [E7]   I see my red door and I want it painted black
[Am]      [G]          [C]              [Am]      Maybe then I'll fade away and not have to face the fact
[Am]         [G]     [C]       [G]        [D]       [E7]It's not easy facing up when your whole world is black
[Am]                             [E7]   No more will my green sea go turn a deeper blue
[Am]                              [E7]   I could not forsee this thing happening to you
[Am]    [G]        [C]     [G]       [Am]   If   I look hard enough into the setting sun
[Am]      [G]          [C]           [G]      [D]   [E7]   My love will laugh with me before the morning comes
[Am]                       [E7]   I see a red door and I want it painted black
[Am]                     [E7]   No colors any more I want them to turn black
[Am]   [G]       [C]                      [Am]   I see the girls walk by dressed in their summer clothes
[Am]   [G]        [C]        [G]         [D]        [E7]I  have to turn my head until the darkness goes
[E7]                       [Am]             [E7]    I want to see your face, painted black, black as night
      [Am]                         [E7]   Don't wanna see the sun flying high in the sky
               [Am]                     [E7] [Am]I wanna see it painted, painted, painted, painted black Yeah

Here it is:
           [Gbm]                         [Db7]     I see my red door and I want it painted black
  [Gbm]                         [Db7]     No colors anymore, I want them to turn black
  [Gbm]  I [E]see the [A]girls go [E]by, dressed [Gbm]in their summer clothes
  [Gbm]     [E]        [A]        [E]       [B]          I have[Db] to turn my head until my darkness goes
And the rest is the same as that.
If you play along with the recording, you'll notice that this is actually
in the wrong key. The way the Stones did it used these chords for the
fingering, but was capoed up three frets and tuned down a bit, so instead
of being in D minor it was somewhere between E minor and F minor. Also, I
may have made some slight mistakes with the lyrics, since I'm doing this
from memory.
