Capo 4
Verse 1
Starry, starry n[G]night
Paint your pallet bl[Am]blue and grey
Look out on a s[C]ummer's day with eye[D7]s that know the darkness in my soul[G]
Shadows on the hills, sketch the trees and the[Am]the daffodils
Catch the breeze and the w[C]winter chills, in col[D7]colours on the snowy linen land [G] [C] [G]
 
Chorus
And now I under[Am]understand [D7]what you tried to say t[G]to me [Em]
How you suffered for your [Am7]sanity [D7] How you tried to set them free[Em]free
They would not listen, they did n[A7]not know how [Am7]perhaps [D7]they listen now[G]now
 
Verse 2
Starry, starry n[G]night
Flaming flowers t[Am]that brightly blaze
Swirling clouds in [C]violet haze ref[D7]reflect in Vincent's eyes of china blue[G]blue
Colors changing hue, morning fields of [Am]amber grain
Weathered faces [C]lined in pain, are soo[D7]soothed beneath the artist's loving hand [G]
 
Chorus
And now I under[Am]understand [D7]what you tried to say t[G]to me [Em]
How you suffered for your [Am7]sanity [D7] How you tried to set them free[Em]free
They would not listen, they did n[A7]not know how [Am7]perhaps [D7]they listen now[G]now
 
Extended Chorus
F[G]or they could not lo[Am7]ve you, bu[D7]t still your love was true [G] [Em]
And when no h[Am7]hope was left in sight on that sta[Cm6]starry, starry night
You t[G]took your life as lo[F7]lovers often do, [E7] But I could [Am7]have told you Vincent
This w[C]world was never meant for one as bea[D7]beautiful as you [G]
 
Verse 3
Starry, starry n[G]night
Portraits hung in e[Am]empty halls
Frameless heads on n[C]ameless walls, with eyes[D7] that watch the world and can't forget[G]
Like the strangers that you've met, the ragged men in [Am]ragged clothes
The silver thorn, the b[C]bloody rose, lie cru[D7]crushed and broken on the virgin snow [G]
 
Final Chorus
And now I think I k[Am]know [D7]what you tried to say [G]to me [Em]
How you suffered for your [Am7]sanity [D7]How you tried to set them free [Em]
They would not listen, they're not [A7]listening still [Am7] perhaps[D7]perhaps they never will [G]
