[Verse1]
[E]Starry, starry night
[F#m]Paint your palette blue and grey
Look out on a su[A]summer's day
With eye[B]eyes that know the dark[E]darkness of my soul
[A]Shadows on the hi[E]hill
Sketch the trees and the [F#m]daffodils
Catch the breeze and the w[A]winter chills
In co[B]colors on the snowy linen land
 
[Chorus]
[E]Now I un[F#m]understand [B]what you tried to sa[E]say to me [B] [C#m]
How you suffered for your san[F#m]sanity [B]
How you tried to set them [C#m]free
They did not listen, they did n[F#m]not know how [A]
[B]Perhaps they'll listen now [E]
 
[Verse2]
[E]Starry, starry night
Flaming flowers b[F#m]brightly blaze
Swirling clouds in viol[A]violet haze
[B]Reflect in Vincent's eyes of c[E]china blue
And the col[A]colors changing hu[E]hue
Morning fi[F#m]fields of amber grain
Weathered faces l[A]lined in pain
Are s[B]soothed beneath the artist's loving [E]hand
 
[Chorus]
[E]Now I un[F#m]understand [B]what you tried to sa[E]say to me [B] [C#m]
How you suffered for your san[F#m]sanity [B]
How you tried to set them [C#m]free
They did not listen, they did n[F#m]not know how [A]
[B]Perhaps they'll listen now [E]
 
[Bridge]
For they could not l[F#m]love you
S[B]Still your love was [E]true [B] [C#m]
How when no h[A]hope was left in sight
[Am]On that starry, starry night
You t[E]took your life, as lovers often do [C#m]
But I c[F#m]could have told you, Vincent
[A]This world was never meant for one as beautiful as yo[E]you
 
[Verse3]
St[E]Starry, starry night
Portraits hung in emp[F#m]empty halls
Frameless head on na[D]nameless wall[A]walls [B]
With eyes that watch the world and can't fo[E]forget [A]
Like the stra[A]strangers that you've m[E]met
Oh the ragged men in the r[F#m]ragged clothes
And the silver thorn of blo[F#m]bloody [A]rose
Lies [E]crushed and b[B]broken on the virgin sn[E]snow
 
[Outro]
[E]Now I un[F#m]understand [B]what you tried to sa[E]say to me [B] [C#m]
How you suffered for your san[F#m]sanity [B]
How you tried to set them [C#m]free
They did not listen, they did n[F#m]not know how [A]
[B]Perhaps they'll listen now [E]
