*Standard Tuning*

Intro: A5 

Verse 1:
Am                       E
 I see a red door and I want it painted black

Am                    E
 No colors anymore I want them to turn black

Bridge 1:
Am   G          C       G          Am   
   I see the girls walk by dressed in their summer clothes

     G          C       G    D9                 E7
   I have to turn my head un-til my darkness goes

Verse 2:
Am   E       
   I see a line of cars and they are painted black
Am                               E 
   With flowers and my love both never to come back

Bridge 2:
Am   G        C      G     Am
   I see people turn their heads and quickly look away
        G       C    G     D9                  E7 
   Like a newborn baby, it just happens every day

Verse 3:
Am                          E 
   I look inside myself and see my heart is black

Am                           E 
   I see my red door and its heading into black

Bridge 3:
Am    G          C      G    Am    
   Maybe then I'll fade away and not have to face the facts

        G      C    G           D9                     E7  
   It's not easy facing up when your whole world is black

                  Am                          E7
   I wanna see it painted, painted...painted black

                            Am                          E7   
   Oh baby, I wanna see it painted, painted...painted black

   Oh baby...  A5   Am9

Am                              E
   No more will my green sea go turn a deeper blue

Am                                E            
   I could not foresee this thing happening to you

Bridge 4:
Am    G      C       C     Am 
   If I look hard enough into the setting sun

      G          C    G         D9               E7
   My love will laugh with me before the morning comes

Am                        E

Am                        E

Am                        E

Am                        E

                  Am                       E
   I wanna see it painted, painted...painted black oh,

   Am                                                  E7
   Black as night, black as coal, I wanna see the sun

   Blotted out from the sky

   Am                          E7
   Painted, painted, painted black

   Am                          E7
   Painted, painted, painted black
