Verse 1
G		Dm2		G5		C
Standing at the bus stop with my shopping in my hands
	    G              Dm2             G5              C    	
When im over hearing elder ladies as the rumours start to fly
                       G                 Dm2              G5 
You can hear em in the schoolyard, in a scrapyard, in a chip shop, 
     C                G                  Dm2               G5              C
in a phone box, in the pool hall, at the shoe store, every corner turned around


Verse 2 - 
                                                                     
It started with a schoolgirl, who was running, running home to her mum and dad
             
She told them she was playing, in the change room of her local football side
                     
They said tell us again, so she told them again, they said tell us the truth they
                  
found it hard to believe
                                  
cause he taught our steve, he even trained me, taught uncle John Who's a father of three 


Chorus
            Dm2                 G5              C
But it only takes one tree, to make a thousand matches
        Dm2                  C      D         G         
It only takes one match, to burn a thousand trees, a thousand trees

Verse 3
                              
You see it in the classroom, in the swimming pool, where the matchstick men are made
              
In the scouts hall, at the football, where the wise we trust are paid
                  
They all honur his name, he did alot for the game
Bm
He got his name knocked up above the sports ground gates
             
But now there ripping them down, stamping the ground, picture gathers dust
                     C 
behind the bar in the lounge


Chorus
            Dm2                  G5            C
But it only takes one tree, to make a thousand matches
        Dm2                  C      D              G
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                 Dm2       C                 D
His growing seeds dont believe why he's been, yeaah


Verse 4 (mellow)
            G             Dm2         G5              C
Away in the schoolyard, change room, playing fields bathroom
G           Dm2             G5             C
Phonebox, office box, every corner turned around,
                       G                  Dm2
They keep doubting the flame, tossing the blame, 
            G5                    C
He got his name knocked up above the sports ground gates, 
        G                   Dm2
But now there ripping them down, stamping the ground, 
G5                      C
Picture gathers dust behind the bar in the lounge


Chorus
            Dm2                  G5            C
But it only takes one tree, to make a thousand matches,
        Dm2                  C      D       G     
It only takes one match, to burn a thousand treeeeees...........enjoy
