Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
OK, none of the chords on here sound quite right to me so thought I'd put up what 
I think sounds right. This is partly based on this excellent cover - http://

G Am7 G/B C x 2

G               Am7               G/B            C
Standing at the bus stop with my shopping in my hands
            G             Am7            G/B              C
And I'm overhearing elder ladies as the rumours start to fly
                         G                   Am7
You can hear them in the school yard, in the scrap yard
       G/B              C              
In the chip shop, in the phone box 
       G                 Am7               G/B            C
In the pool hall, at the shoe store, every corner turned around
                 
                  G                   Am7
It started with a school girl who was running
        G/B                 C
Running home to her Mam and Dad
                  G               Am7                G/B            C
Told them she was playing, in the change room of the local football side
                   G                    Am7               G/B
They said tell us again, she told them again, tell us the truth, they found 
             C
it hard to believe
                     G                      Am7            G/B
'Cause he taught our Steve, he even trained me, taught our John who's a 
          C
father of three

      Am7               Fmaj7     C
Only takes one tree, to make 1000 matches
      Am7                 
Only takes one match, 
   Fmaj7  C        G     Am7  G/B  C
to burn A thousaaaaand trees
       G    Am7 G/B  C
A thousand trees

                  G
You see it in the classroom
       Am7
In the swimming pool
          G/B                 C
Where the match stick men are made
       G
At the scout's hall
       Am7
At the football
          G/B               C
Where the wise we trust are paid
                    G
They all honour his name
                     Am7
He did a lot for the game
        G/B                       C
Got his name knocked up above the sports ground gates
            G                  Am7
But they're ripping them down, stamping the ground
G/B                             C
Picture gathers dust behind the bar in the lounge

      Am7              Fmaj7           C
Only takes one tree, to make a thousand matches
      Am7                Fmaj7  C       G    Am7  G/B  C
Only takes one match, to burn a thousaaaand trees
       G    Am7  G/B  C
A thousand trees
   
D       Fmaj7          C
 Wake up, and smell the rain
D               Fmaj7    C
 Shake up, he's back to stay
D                   Fmaj7 C
 He hasn't been on a holiday
D                      Fmaj7
 Growing seeds don't believe
    C     G   Am7  G/B  C
Why he's beeeeen awaaaaay

G Am7 G/B C x 3
 
        G           Am7            G/B            C
In the school yard, changing room, playing field, bathroom
G          Am7            G/B           C
Phone box, office blocks, corners turn around
                       G                  Am7
They keep doubting the flame, tossing the blame
        G/B                       C
Got his name knocked up above the sports ground gates
            G                  Am7
And they're ripping them down, stamping the ground
G/B                         C
Picture gathers dust in the bar in the lounge
 
      Am7               Fmaj7           C
Only takes one tree, to make a thousand matches
      Am7                Fmaj7  C       G    Am7  G/B  C
Only takes one match, to burn a thousaaaand trees
       G    Am7  G/B C
A thousand trees
       G    Am7  G/B C
A thousand trees
       G  Am7   G/B  C
A thousaaaand treeeees
