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
