Artist: Status Quo
Song: Pictures of Matchtick men
Standard Tuning (E,A,D,G)

It ain't Perfect but it does go wth the song if played correctly!

This song was Actually played on a Fender Bass VI Which is a Six String Bass But I have 
it to suit 4 strings so enjoy!

Lyrics:

 When I look up to the skies
I see your eyes a funny kind of yellow
I rush home to bed I soak my head
I see your face underneath my pillow
I wake next morning tired still yawning
See your face come peaking through my window
Pictures of matchstick men and you
Mirages of matchstick men and you
All I ever see is them and you

Windows echo your reflection
When I look in their direction gone
When will this haunting stop
Your face it just wont leave me a-lone
Pictures of matchstick men and you
Mirages of matchstick men and you
All I ever see is them and you
You in the sky you with this guy you make men cry you lie
You in the sky you with this guy you make men cry you lie

Clearly wrong. Sorry to rate it low but try to play it along to the song and you'll see that it's just not right.
