A Thousand Trees  Stereophonics

[G]Standing at the [Dm2]bus stop with my[G5] shopping in my [C]hands
When im over[G] hearing elder [Dm2]ladies as the ru[G5]mours start to f[C]ly
You can hear em in the [G]schoolyard, in a s[Dm2]crapyard, in a ch[G5]ip shop,
in a [C]phone box, in the[G] pool hall, at the [Dm2]shoe store, every [G5]corner turned ar[C]ound


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
But it only [Dm2]takes one tree, to m[G5]ake a thousand m[C]atches
It only [Dm2]takes one match, to b[C]urn a t[D]housand tr[G]ees, 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
behind the bar in the[C] lounge


Chorus
But it only [Dm2]takes one tree, to ma[G5]ke a thousand [C]matches
It only [Dm2]takes one match, to b[C]urn a t[D]housand trees, [G]a thousand trees


Bridge
[D]Wake up, sm[C]ell the rain
[D]Shake up he[C]'s back to stay
[D]He hasnt been [C]on a holiday
[D]His growing seeds [Dm2]dont belie[C]ve why he's been, [D]yeaah


Verse 4 (mellow)
Away in the [G]schoolyard, ch[Dm2]ange room, p[G5]laying fields ba[C]throom
[G]Phonebox, of[Dm2]fice box, every [G5]corner turned a[C]round,
They keep doubting the [G]flame, tossing the [Dm2]blame,
He got his n[G5]ame knocked up above t[C]he sports ground gates,
But now [G]there ripping them d[Dm2]own, stamping the ground,
[G5]Picture gathers dust beh[C]ind the bar in the lounge


Chorus
But it only [Dm2]takes one tree, to ma[G5]ke a thousand [C]matches,
It only [Dm2]takes one match, to b[C]urn a t[D]housand [G]treeeeees...........enjoy
