MATCH STALK MEN AND MATCH STALK CATS AND DOGS


C                                                             
He  painted  salford  Smokey  tops,
     EM 
On  Cardboard  boxes  from  the  shops.
       AM                                                  DM 
And  parts  of  ancolts  where  I  used  to  play.
      F                                  
I’m  sure  he  once  walked  down  our  street,
               C             
cause  he  painted  kids  who  had  nout  on  their  feet,
       G                                                           C
The  clothes  he  wore  had  all seen better  days,



C                                                          
Now  they  said  his  works  of  art  where  dull,
      EM
No  room  about  the  wall  was  full,
     AM                                        DM
But  Lowry  didn’t  care  much  anyway,
         F            
They  said  he  just  paints  cats  and  dogs.
       C     
And  Match stalk  men  in  boots  and  clogs,
        G                                                                C
And  Lowry  said  that’s  just  the  way  they’ll  stay,



(chorus)  
              C                                                                                                 F               
             And  he  painted  Match stalk  men  and  Match stalk  cats  and  dogs,
                                G                                                                                       C 
             He  painted  kids  on  the  corner  of  the  streets  with  the  sparking  clogs,
                                                                                       F
             And  now  he  takes  his  brush  and  he  waits  outside  them  factory  gates,
                                   G                                                                        C 
             To  paint  his  Match stalk  men  and  Match stalk  cats  and  dogs,

C                                                         
Now  canvas  and  brushes  where  wearing  thin,
          EM   
When  London  started  calling  him,
     AM                                                           DM          
To  come  on  down  and  wear  the  old  flat  cap,
                 F                
They  said  tell  us  all  about  your  ways,
        C
And  all  about  them  salford  days,
        G                                              C 
Is  it  true  you’re  just  an  ordinary  chap.
                                                                 (chorus)


       C              
Now  Lowry's  hand  upon  the  wall,
EM    
Beside  the  greatest  of  them  all,
       AM                                           DM
And  even  the  Mona Lisa  takes  a  bow,
       F                               
This  tired  old  man  with  hair  like  snow,
        C      
Told  northern  folk  its  time  to  go,
     G                                                                         C
The  fever  came  and  the  good  Lord  mopped  his  brow,


(chorus 2)
                C                                                                                                  F
                And  he  left  us  Match stalk  men  and  Match stalk  cats  and  dogs,
                                 G                                                                                        C
                He  left  us  kids  on  the  corner  of  the  streets  with  the  sparking  clogs,
                                                                                  F
                Now  he  takes  his  brush  and  he  waits  outside  them  pearly  gates,
                                     G                                                                         C
                To  paint  his  Match stalk  men  and  Match stalk  cats  and  dogs, 
                                                                                                                   REP chorus 2
