About this tab version
Tried to make a chord version as close as possible to the original and following the nuances in the melody line. Was this info helpful? Yes No
Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
I missed a good fingerpicking chord version of this fabolous song.
The fingerpicking you have to find out for yourself, or turn to the tab-version of 
course. Or play along with YouTube.

The number between brackets after the G chord means it's a different chord form 
than played elsewhere. See chord diagrams.


G                   Gsus4  - G                               
Starry, starry night
                   Am       Asus2   Am
paint your palette blue and grey
Am            Am/C     Asus2/C        
Look out on a summer's day
     D7                                G
with eyes that know the darkness in my soul
Gsus4          G     Gsus4  - G                                         
Shadows on the hills,
                         Am   Asus2   Am
sketch the trees and the daffodils,
Am                       Am/C   Asus2/C    
Catch the breeze and the winter chills
   D7                         G
in colours on the snowy linen land.

Gsus4-G(no3)-Gsus4-G(2)-Gsus2

G          Am   Asus2 D7                   G      G/F#
Now I understand         what you tried to say to me.
Em                        Am7    D7                           Em
How you suffered for your sanity,   how you tried to set them free.
                                A7           Am7    D7                  G
They would not listen, they did not know how.    Perhaps they'll listen now.

GM7(no5)-G6(no5)-G(3)

G                    Gsus4  - G                                 
Starry, starry night,
                     Am       Asus2   Am
flaming flowers that brightly blaze,
Am                 Am/C   Asus2/C    
Swirling clouds in violet haze 
  D7                               G
reflect in Vincent's eyes of China blue.
Gsus4            G   Gsus4  - G  
Colours changing hue, 
                  Am    Asus2   Am
morning fields of amber grain
Am              Am/C     Asus2/C       
Weathered faces lined in pain
    D7                                  G
are soothed beneath the artist's loving hand

G          Am   Asus2 D7                   G      G/F#
Now I understand         what you tried to say to me.
Em                        Am7    D7                           Em
How you suffered for your sanity,   how you tried to set them free.
                                A7           Am7    D7                  G
They would not listen, they did not know how.    Perhaps they'll listen now.

    G              Am      Asus4 D7                         G   G/F#
For they could not love you         but still your love was true
Em          Am7                            Cm
And when no hope was left in sight on that starry, starry night,
    G                 F6add#11     E7        Am7
You took your life as lovers often do. But I could have told you, Vincent,
     C               Am7              D7           G
This world was never meant for one as beautiful as you.

Gsus4-G(no3)-Gsus4-G(2)-Gsus2

G                    Gsus4  - G 
Starry, starry night, 
                  Am    Asus2   Am
portraits hung in empty halls,
Am                 Am/C     Asus2/C        
Frameless heads on nameless walls 
     D7                                     G
with eyes that watch the world and can't forget.
         Gsus4                 G   Gsus4 -G                             
Like the strangers that you've met,
                  Am     Asus2   Am
the ragged men in ragged clothes,
Am                    Am/C   Asus2/C       
The silver thorn, the bloody rose
     D7                               G
lie crushed and broken on the virgin snow.

G                 Am Asus2 D7                   G      G/F#
Now I think I know            what you tried to say to me.
Em                        Am7    D7                           Em
How you suffered for your sanity,   how you tried to set them free.
                                   A7             Am7 
They would not listen, they're not listening still
   D7              G
perhaps they never will.
