"Vincent (Starry, Starry Night)" by Don McLean.

[Verse]
                 G   Gsus4
Starry, starry night
                    Am  
Paint your palette blue and gray
                C
Look out on a summer's day
      D                                 G
With eyes that know the darkness in my soul
                 G
Shadows on the hills
                             Am
Sketch the trees and the daffodils
                           C
Catch the breeze and the winter chills
      D                        D
In colors on the snowy linen land


[Chorus]
             Am
Now I understand
D7                 G  D   E
What you tried to say to me
                                Am7   
And how you suffered for your sanity
D                              Em
And how you tried to set them free
                                A7  
They would not listen, they did not know how
Am7  D                  G
Perhaps they'll listen now


[Verse]
                 G  Gsus4
Starry, starry night
                        Am
Flaming flowers that brightly blaze
                     C
Swirling clouds in violet haze
    D                                G
Reflect in Vincent's eyes of china blue
                 G   Gsus4
Colors changing hue
                   Am 
Morning fields of amber grain
                  C
Weathered faces lined in pain
       D                                 G
Are soothed beneath the artist's loving hand


[Chorus]
           Am     D7
Now I understand
                   G     D  Em
What you tried to say to me
                                 E7  
And how you suffered for your sanity
D                              Em
And how you tried to set them free
                                A7
They would not listen, they did not know how
Am7  D                  G
Perhaps they'll listen now


[Bridge]
                    Am     D7
For they could not love you
                          G D Em
But still your love was true
             Am7
And when no hope was left in sight
          Cm
On that starry, starry night
      G                 Bm7b5        E7
You took your life, as lovers often do
        Am
But I could've told you Vincent
       C
This world was never meant for
         D           G
One as beautiful as you


[Verse]
                 G   Gsus4
Starry, starry night
                    Am
Portraits hung in empty halls
                       C
Frame-less heads on nameless walls
      D                                    G
With eyes that watch the world and can't forget
                                G  Gsus4
Like the strangers that you've met
                    Am
The ragged men in ragged clothes
                      C
The silver thorn of bloody rose
       D                               G
Lie crushed and broken on the virgin snow


[Chorus]

               Am
Now I think I know
                   G D Em
What you tried to say to me
                                 Am
And how you suffered for your sanity
A                              Em  
And how you tried to set them free
                                       A7   
They would not listen, they're not listening still

Am7  D               G
Perhaps they never will

End.
