Song:    At Least You Left The Matches
Artist:  Sammy Kershaw
Album:   Labor of Love


Intro:   D Bm G Asus A

(D) We met at the Broken Spoke
  (Bm) restaurant and lounge
I (G) lit your cigarette
  then you (A7sus) wrote your number down (A7)

On the (D) inside of a matchbook
  that was (Bm) laying on the bar
And a (G) fire started burning
  (Asus7) somewhere (A) in my (D) heart

I (D) didn't see it coming
  guess I (Bm) didn't read the signs
I just (G) never thought you'ld leave me
  (A7sus) after all this time (A7)

But (D) today when I came home
  my key was (Bm) hollow in the door
There was (G) nothin' but a worn out
  book of (A7sus) matches (A) on the (D) floor

You took the (G) bed
  you took the (A7sus) dishes and the (A7) car
You broke my (D) trust (D2)(D)
  and you took (Am7) advantage of my (Am7/D) heart
And you left me (G) here
  with empty (Bm) rooms and walls with (A) holes

and scares and (G) scratches
  If I (Bm) find the strength to (A) burn your memory (G) down
(A7sus) At (A) least you left the (D) matches

Bm G A7sus A

The (D) colors old and faded
  the (Bm) covers worn and stained
But I can (G) still make out the numbers
  and the (A7sus) heart beside your (A) name

Until (D) tonight they'd only
  lit a (Bm) single cigarette
Now (G) one-by-one I'm striking them
  to (A) help me to (D) forget

And (Bm) everybody (A) at the Broken (G) Spoke
  Well they all (Bm) thought my crazy (A) story was a (G) joke
Now they're (Bm) all out in the (A) parking lot
  (G) staring at the smoke


You took the (G) bed
  you took the (A7sus) dishes and the (A7/B) car
You broke my (D) trust (D2)(D)
  and you took (Am7) advantage of my (Am7/D) heart
And you left me (G) here
  with empty (Bm) rooms and walls with (A) holes

and scares and (G) scratches
  Now I've (Bm) found the strength to (A) burn your memory (G) down
(A7sus) Oh, at (A) least you left the (D) matches

Baby (Bm) all that's left of (A) our love now is (G) ashes
(A) Thank God you left the (D) matches  Bm A7sus D

  ooo               ooo   oo   o  oo o o  oo   o  ooo  o

This is the first song I've ever tab'd.  I enjoy this song
so much I had to share it ... and I'll be doing more!
