Matchbox (Carl Perkins)
I said I’m sittin' here watchin'
Matchbox hole in my clothes.
I ain’t got no matches but I sure
got a long way to go.
I’m an ol' poor boy, and I’m a
long way from home.
I’ll never be happy cause everything I’ve
ever did was wrong.
Well, If you don’t want my peaches honey,
please don’t shake my tree.
I got news for you baby, leave me here in
Well, let me be your little dog, till your
big dog comes.
And when your big dog gets here, watch how
your puppy dog runs.
Note: Key of A, I IV V, with no turnaround to E in twelfth bar.
