"A THOUSAND TREES"... Chords by Stereophonics, www.Ultimate-Guitar.Com

By Peter Danaher

Standard Tuning...these chords are spot on, the same Mr Jones himself uses for the song.

[Intro]

G C6 G5 C

G   320033
C6  002013
G5  020033
C   032010
D   000232


[Verse 1]
G               C6             G5              C
Standing at the bus stop with my shopping in my hands
            G              C6             G5              C            
When im over hearing elder ladies as the rumours start to fly
                       G                 C6              G5 
You can hear em in the schoolyard, in a scrapyard, in a chip shop, 
     C                G                  C6               G5              C
in a phone box, in the pool hall, at the shoe store, every corner turned around


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


[Chorus]
            C6                 G5              C
But it only takes one tree, to make a thousand matches
        C6                  C      D         G         
It only takes one match, to burn a thousand trees, a thousand trees


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


[Chorus]
            C6                  G5            C
But it only takes one tree, to make a thousand matches
        C6                  C      D              G
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                 C6       C                 D
His growing seeds dont believe why he's been, yeaah


[Verse 4]
(mellow)
            G             C6         G5              C
Away in the schoolyard, change room, playing fields bathroom
G           C6             G5             C
Phonebox, office box, every corner turned around,
                       G                  C6
They keep doubting the flame, tossing the blame, 
            G5                    C
He got his name knocked up above the sports ground gates, 
        G                   C6
But now there ripping them down, stamping the ground, 
G5                      C
Picture gathers dust behind the bar in the lounge


[Chorus]
            C6                  G5            C
But it only takes one tree, to make a thousand matches,
        C6                  C      D       G     
It only takes one match, to burn a thousand treeeeees...........enjoy

chords from the proper version are: G, Am7, G/B and C for the verse

hmmmmmmmmmmmm... your Dm2 massively resembles an Am7 (x02013) apart from the open bottom E. that would make your Dm2 something more like an Am7/E. which is sadly a mistake. The same goes for your G5.` the open bottom string makes it a slash chord with an E in the bass, (G/E anyone?) ...anyway, open strings aside, your G5 looks too much like a G/B and its voicing is practically identical, so i concur with mr sensible above. good tab, wrong chord names. 4 stars
