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.
