Intro

G  Am  Bm  C  (x2)



Verse 1
G               Am              Bm              C
Standing at the bus stop with my shopping in my hands
            G              Am             Bm              C     
When im over hearing elder ladies as the rumours start to fly
                       G                 Am              Bm 
You can hear em in the schoolyard, in a scrapyard, in a chip shop, 
     C                G                  Am               Bm              C
in a phone box, in the pool hall, at the shoe store, every corner turned around


Verse 2
                  G                    Am             Bm                  C
It started with a schoolgirl, who was running, running home to her mum and dad
                      G               Am                Bm              C 
She told them she was playing, in the change room of her local football side
                     G                    Am                            Bm
They said tell us again, so she told them again, they said tell us the truth they
                  C
found it hard to believe
                    G                     Am                     Bm                
cause he taught our steve, he even trained me, taught uncle John Who's a father of
C
three 


Chorus
            Am                 Bm              C
But it only takes one tree, to make a thousand matches
        Am                  C      D                  
It only takes one match, to burn a thousand trees, a thousand trees


Verse 3
                  G                 Am                       Bm                C  
You see it in the classroom, in the swimming pool, where the matchstick men are made
       G                  Am                  Bm                C         
In the scouts hall, at the football, where the wise we trust are paid
                  G                         Am  
They all honur his name, he did alot for the game
Bm
He got his name knocked up above the sports ground gates
              G                  Am                           Bm  
But now there ripping them down, stamping the ground, picture gathers dust
                     C 
behind the bar in the lounge


Chorus
            Am                  Bm            C
But it only takes one tree, to make a thousand matches
        Am                  C      D 
It only takes one match, to burn a thousand trees, a thousand trees


Bridge
D          C 
Wake up, smell the rain
D          C 
Shake up he's back to stay
D             C
He hasnt been on a holiday
D                 Am       C                 D
His growing seeds dont believe why he's been, yeaah

G   Am   Bm   C (x2)


Verse 4 (mellow)
            G             Am         Bm              C
Away in the schoolyard, change room, playing fields bathroom
G           Am             Bm             C
Phonebox, office box, every corner turned around,
                       G                  Am
They keep doubting the flame, tossing the blame, 
            Bm                    C
He got his name knocked up above the sports ground gates, 
        G                   Am
But now there ripping them down, stamping the ground, 
Bm                      C
Picture gathers dust behind the bar in the lounge


Chorus
            Am                  Bm            C
But it only takes one tree, to make a thousand matches,
        Am                  C      D             
It only takes one match, to burn a thousand treees.

there's a couple of other little bits, but they're the main ones for the added second guitar if anyone wants them.
Good tab, couple of bits I'm not sure about, in the chorus he definately goes to the main chords again over the second "thousand trees"
