Starry Starry Night (ver 2)  Don McLean

[G]Starry, starry  [G]night, pai[G]nt your palette
[A]Blue and grey, L[A]ook out on a    [C]summer's day,
[D]with eyes that know the dar[D]kness in my soul [G]
[G]Shadows on the hills[G],
[C]Sketch the trees and the daffo[A]dills
C[C]atch the breeze and the[A]winter chills, in
[D]colors on the sn[D]owy linen land[G]
[G]now I under stand wh[A]at you tri[A]ed to
[G]Say to me,  how you suff[A]ered for your sa[A]nity
How you[C] tried to set them free, [G]
[C]they would not listen, th[C]ey did not know how,     [A]
[D]  Perhaps they'll listen        [G]now
[G]Starry, starry  n[G]ight, flam[G]ing flowers that
[A]Brightly blaze, sw[A]irling clouds in violet[C] haze
[D]Reflect in Vincent�s eye[D]s of China Blue   [G]
[G]Colors changing hue, [G]
[C]Morning fields of amber gr[A]ain
[C]Weathered faces lined wi[A]th pain
[D]Are soothed beneath the artist[D]s loving hand     [G]
[G]And now I under stand wh[A]at you tr[A]ied to
[G]say to me,  how you suffere[A]d for your sanity  [A]
[C]How you tried to set them free,[G]
[C]they would not listen, they did no[A]t know how,
[D]Perhaps they'll listen  now     [G]
Fo[C]r they could not love you,
but stil[C]l your love was true   [G]
[C]And when no     hope was left in sig[C]ht
On that [C]starry, starry nig[C]ht,
you took[G] your life as lo[G]vers oft[G]en do
[A]But I could have told you, Vincent, this worl[C]d was
Never meant for one as be[D]autiful as     [G]you
[G]Starry, starry  [G]night, p[G]ortraits hung in
[A]Empty halls, frameless heads on n[C]ameless walls
[D]with eyes that watch the[D] world and can�t f[G]orget
[G]Like the strangers that you�ve m[G]et
[C]The ragged men in ragged c[A]lothes
T[C]he silver thorn the bloo[A]dy rose, lie
[D]Crushed and broken on the[D] virgin snow [G]
[G]now I think I know, wha[A]t you tri[A]ed to
[G]say to me,  how you suff[A]ered for your sani[A]ty
How [C]you tried to set the[G]m free,
[C]They would not listen, they�re not listening still[A],
[D]Perhaps they never will�     [G]
