Here I tabbed the song Paint it Black by the Rolling Stones. Hope you like it.

Verse 1 and 5

Em                       B
  I see a red door and I want it painted black.

Em                     B  
  No colours anymore I want them to turn black.

Em  D       G          D          Em
  I see the girls walk by dressed in their summer clothes.

Em  D       G       D       A               B
  I have to turn my head un-til my darkness goes.

Verse 2

Em                         B     
  I see a line of cars and they're all painted black.

Em                              B
  With flowers and by love both never to come back.

Em  D          G          D         Em
  I see people turn their heads and quickly look away.

Em       D        G    D       A             B 
  Like a new born baby it just happens every day.

Verse 3

Em                         B
  I look inside myself and see my heart is black.

Em                        B
  I see my red door and I want it painted black.

Em      D         G      D       Em
  Maybe then I'll fade a-way and not have to face the facts.

Em         D    G      D       A                   B
  It's not easy facing up when your whole world is black.

Verse 4

Em                             B
  No more will my green sea go turn a deeper blue.

Em                              B
  I could not forsee this thing happening to you.

Em   D      G      D        Em
  If I look hard e-nough in-to the setting sun

Em   D         G          D     A                B
  My love will laugh with me be-fore the morning comes.


Em                     B
  Hm Hm Hm Hm Hm Hm Hm Hm Hm Hm Hm hmmm...  (Fade out)

That's it and thank you have a lot of fun playing!
