Pictures of Matchstick Men

 This song was originally done by Status Quo but I figured it out
listening to the Camper Van Beethoven version.  I used to play this with a
band and it usually got a decent response from the audience.  If you don't
have a violin to play the solo lines try a heavy distortion/wah pedal
combo.  Listen to the tune some to make sure you get the right rhythms
because it is not always straight forward.

 Do the
intro once just with the line, then the chords come in for the second
time, You can just hold a D chord for the second half of the intro line if
you prefer.  The first verse comes in and is played on top of those four
chords in the same rhythm

D F C G x5
When I look up to the sky I see your
eyes a funny kind of yellow, (yellow).
Rush home to bed, I shake my head,
I see your face underneath my pillow (pillow).
I wake the next morning, tired still yawning,
I see your face looking through my window. [Hold a D here to go into the
chorus]

Chorus
G G              A A           D x3
Pictures of Matchstick Men and you
Images of Matchstick Men and you
All I ever see is them and you

B F C+(little riff you can figure out)
Windows echo your reflection, whenI look in your direction, now

Fake faces haunting me, Your face just won't leave me, alone.

Chorus

as follows-

You are....
Your in the sky
Your with the sky
You make men cry
