I found a much easier version than the other postings, I made a few adjustments. 
Sounds best when picked.

[Verse 1]

G               G         G                     
Starry, starry  night, paint your palette       
Am              Am              C
Blue and grey, Look out on a    summer's day, 
D                          D                G
with eyes that know the darkness in my soul
G                   G
Shadows on the hills, 
C                         Am
Sketch the trees and daffodills
 C                      Am
Catch the breeze and    winter chills, in 
D               D             G
colors on the snowy linen land           


[Pre-Chorus]

G                       Am        Am
And now I under stand what you tried to 
G                       Am              Am
Say to me,  how you suffered for your sanity


[Chorus]

       C                        G
How you tried to set them free, 
C                        C                Am
they would not listen, they did not know how,
D                               G
  Perhaps they'll listen        now


[Verse 2]

G                G         G                    
Starry, starry  night, flaming flowers that     
Am                Am                     C
Brightly blaze, swirling clouds in violet haze
D                       D                 G
Reflecting Vincent’s eyes of China Blue
G                    G
Colors changing hue, 
C                         Am
Morning fields of amber grain
C                       Am
Weathered faces lined with pain 
D                             D                 G
Are soothed beneath the artists loving hand


[Pre-Chorus]

G                       Am        Am
And now I under stand what you tried to 
G                          Am             Am
say to me,  how you suffered for your sanity


[Chorus]

C                              G        
How you tried to set them free, 
C                                 Am
they would not listen, they did not know how,
D                               G
Perhaps they'll listen  now


[Bridge]

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


[Verse 3]

G               G       G                       
Starry, starry  night, portraits hung in        
Am              Am              C
Empty halls, fearless heads on nameless walls
D                       D                 G
with eyes that watch the world and can’t forget
G                               G
Like the strangers that you’ve met
C                         Am
The ragged men in ragged clothes 
 C                      Am
The silver thorn of bloody rose, lie
D                        D            G
Crushed and broken on the virgin snow


[Pre-Chorus]

G                          Am        Am
And now I think I know, what you tried to 
G                       Am                Am
say to me,  how you suffered for your sanity


[Chorus]

    C                   G
How you tried to set them free, 
C                                               Am
They would not listen, they’re not listening still,
D                    G
Perhaps the never will

I think the first version is fine for a chordal accompaniment to the song.

"you took your life as lovers *often* do"
"*frameless* heads on nameless walls"

Other than that, well done, very nice and in order ^_^
