Seven Matches Chords by Gordon Downie

[Intro]

D


[Verse 1]
  
               D                     G
She gave me matches, seven wooden matches
               D                                           G
She put them into a small, slim glass jar with a screw-top lid
                D                      G
I fingered that jar, I put it in my pocket
                    D                                                 G
She said, “can’t go into the woods without them”, I smiled at her and left


[Chorus 1]

                A           G
And I kept them dry, and as long as there were six
       A            G
I’d be fine, and as long as there were five


[Verse 2]

                D               G
Matches in that jar, mile after mile
                  D                                                      G
All the chkk-chkk-chkk, chkk sound of the matches, and the memory of her smile

D  G
D  G


[Chorus 2]

            A           G
I kept them dry, and as long as there were five
       A            G
I’d be fine, and as long as there were four


[Verse 3]

             D                     G
Matches in a jar, with a screw-top lid
               D                                                 G
I know she did not mean to hurt my feelings, but that’s what she did


[Chorus 3]

            A           G
I kept them dry, and as long as there were three
       A        G
I’d be fine, as long as there were two
                D
Matches in that jar
