D G D I'd like to tell you a story D G D of a man that you might know. D G D His parents all called him Vincent, D A D his last name was Van Gogh. He started drinking and painting and living a life of sin. He fell in with evil companions, a man named Paul Gaugin. They went to the city of Auvers, pursuing their carnal delights. They painted all during the afternoon and they played music all night. Now the people of that small city thought he was a little bit queer, to prove his love for mankind, he chopped off his outside ear. So they put him in an institution but they could not keep him there. He picked up his paints and his easel and he went out to take some air. He picked up his paints and his easel and he went out to paint some crows. They found him face down in a cornfield, shot right between two rows. D A G D Now where did Vincent van Go?
