Motel Matches  Moe Bandy

Just an hour ago[C] I didn't know her [F]name[C]
A [G7]couple of drinks and we naturally struck up a [C]flame
It wasn't love but [F]then it was plain to [C]see
That we [G7]were two strangers that were matched per[C]fectly
I signed on the line [F]for room 109 at the [C]desk
I [G7]told the man that all we needed was [C]rest
He said to me as he [F]slipped a key in my [C]hand
That's [G7]quite alright Mr. Smith I under[C]stand
Motel matches that [F]burn in the night
[C]Motel matches are [F]so easy to light
[C]Just a spark of [F]desire and the fire always [G7]catches
[C]Motel matches we're [F]two of a kind
[C]We know tomorrow they'll [F]wake up and find
[C]We'll be gone with the dawn and they'll [F]come to sweep out the [G7]ashes
Of motel [C]matches
I close the door and [F]she headed for the [C]car
Warm [G7]tangled sheets were all that left of our [C]fire
I said with a grin to [F]do this again would be [C]nice
But we [G7]both knew that a match can never burn [C]twice
