Vincent (Starry Starry Night)
Written and recorded by Don Mclean

G Am
Starry starry night paint your palette blue and grey
C D7 G
Look out on a summer’s day with eyes that know the darkness in my soul
Am
Shadows on the hills sketch the trees and the daffodils
C
Catch the breeze and the winter chills
D7 G
In colors on the snowy linen land

Am D7 G Em
Now I understand what you tried to say to me
Am D7 Em
How you suffered for your sanity how you tried to set them free
A7
They would not listen they did not know how
D7 G
Perhaps they’ll listen now

Am
Starry starry night flaming flowers that brightly blaze
C D7 G
Swirling clouds in violet haze reflect in Vincent’s eyes of china blue
Am
Colors changing hue morning fields of amber grain
C D7 G
Weathered faces lined in pain are soothed beneath the artists loving hand

Repeat #2

Am D7 G Em
For they could not love you but still your love was true
Am Cm
And when no hope was left in sight on that starry starry nite
G F E7 Am
You took you life as lovers often do but I could of told you Vincent
C D7 G
This world was never meant for one as beautiful as you

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

Am D7 G Em
And now I think I know what you tried to say to me
Am D7 Em
How you suffered for your sanity how you tried to set them free
A7
They would not listen they’re not listening still
D7 G
Perhaps they never will

Am D7 G Em
And now I understand what you tried to say to me
Am D7 Em
How you suffered for your sanity how you tried to set them free
A7 Am D7 G
They would not listen they're not listening still perhaps they never will
