[]Matchbox:Carl Perkins.
A big hit for Perkins in 1956 and
again in '64 when he recorded it
again with the Beatles. Perkins got the inspiration
for Matchbox from an old 1927 Blues tune. KK.



CHORUS:


[E]          
Well, I'm sitting here wondering would a matchbox hold my

[E7]
clothes?


          [A]          
Yeah, I'm sitting here wondering would a matchbox hold my

[E]
clothes?


        [B]                    [B7]                     [E]
I ain't got no matches but I sure got a long way to go.



#1.


[E]                                                 [E7]
Well, I'm an old poor boy and I'm a long way from home.


       [A]        [A7]                                [E]
I'm an old poor boy and I'm a long, long way from home.


           [B]        [B7]                              [E]
Guess I'll never be happy 'cause everything I do is wrong.



CHORUS:



#2.

[E]                                           [E7]
Let me be your little dog 'til your big dog comes.


       [A]       [A7]                           [E]
Let me be your little dog 'til your big dog comes.


          [B]            [B7]
When your big dog gets here, show him how this puppy dog 

[E]
runs.




CHORUS:




A fifties and sixties smash from Kraziekhat.
