NIGHTS IN WHITE SATIN
Moody Blues

Em                D       Em                     D
  Nights in white satin       never reaching the end
C              G          F                    Em
  Letters I've written        never meaning to send
Em           D            Em                    D
  Beauty I'd always missed    with these eyes before
C               G         F                  Em
  Just what the truth is      I can't say anymore


CHORUS
        A               C
Cause I love you, yes I love you
           Em           D      Em       D
Ohhh how I love you


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                 G             Am                    G
   Nights in white satin,           never reaching the end.
F                  C             Bb                    Am
   Letters  I've   written,         never  meaning  to send.
Am                 G             Am                    G
   Beauty   I've   always missed,   with  these  eyes  before.
F                  C             Bb                    Am
   Just what  the  truth is,        I  can't  say   anymore.  But I ...

[Chorus]
D                  D             F                     F
Love you.                 Yes, I love you.             Oh how I
Am                 G             Am                    G
Love you......

[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]

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-------------------------|--|

I like the first set of chords better. Maybe just cause it's easier for me, but I think it sounds better.
