Paint It Black – The Rolling Stones Chords/Lyrics

Note from Mike:  I play this capo’ed on the first fret, so the song is actually in Fm, but played in Em.

Paint It Black
Key: Em

Em                     B7
I see a red door and I want to paint it black
Em                   B7
No colors any more I want them to turn black

CHORUS:
Em D      G          D          Em
I  see the girls walk by dressed in their summer clothes
Em D       G        D     A               B7
I  have to turn my head until my darkness goes

Em                       B7
I see a line of cars and they're all painted black
Em                            B7
With flowers and my love both never to come back
Em  D          G          D         Em
I   see people turn their heads and quickly look away
Em     D       G     D       A             B7
Like a newborn baby, it just happens every day

Em                       B7
I look inside myself and see my heart is black
I see my red door and I want it painted black

Em    D         G      D      Em
Maybe then I'll fade away and not have to face the fact
Em       D    G      D       A                   B7
It's not easy facing up when your whole world is black

Em                           B7
No more will my green sea go turn a deeper blue
I could not foresee this thing happening to you

Em   D      G      D      Em
If   I look hard enough into the setting sun
Em D         G          D     A               B7
My love will laugh with me before the morning comes

Em                                          B7
I want to see you paint it, paint it black, black as night

Songwriters: Mick Jagger/Keith Richards
