Verse w/intro
Standing at the bus stop with my shopping in my hands. 
And I'm overhearing elder ladies, as the rumours start to fly
You can hear them in the schoolyard, in the scrapyard. 
In the chip shop, in the phone box. 
In the pool hall, at the shoe store.
Every corner turned around
                        
Verse
It started with a school girl, who was running,
Running home to her Mam and Dad, told them she was playing, 
In the change room of the local football side.
They said tell us again, She told them again, 
Tell us the truth, we find it hard to believe. 
Cause he taught our Steve, even trained me,
Taught Uncle John who's father of three.
                        
Chorus:
     Am7                Fsus2           C5
Only takes one tree, to make a thousand matches
     Am7                 Fsus2  C5       G5   Am7  G/B  C5 
Only takes one match, to burn a thousand trees
    G5   Am7   G/B   C5  
thousand trees
                        
Verse
You see it in the classroom, in the swimming pool
Where the matchstick men are made, 
At the scout's hall, at the football, 
Where the wise we trust are paid
They all honour his name, he did a lot for the game. 
He got his name knocked up above the sports ground gates. 
But now they're ripping them down, stamp on the ground
Picture gathers dust behind the bar in the lounge
                        
Chorus
                        
Bridge:
D       Fsus2      C5
Wake up, smell the rain. 
D              Fsus2   C5
Shake up, he's back to stay. 
D                Fsus2 C5
Hasn't been on a holiday. 
D                   Fsus2
Growing seeds don't believe. 
C5       w/intro
Why he's been away.

Verse
In the schoolyard, changing room. 
Playing field, bathroom. 
Phone box, office blocks. 
Corners turned around.
They keep doubting the flame, tossing the blame. 
Got his name knocked up above the sports ground gates. 
And they're ripping them down, stamping the ground
Picture gathers dust in the bar in the lounge
                        
Chorus (plus extra lines)

thousand trees
    G5   Am7   G/B   C5  
thousand trees
