Matchbox ()
Author: Carl Perkins; Lead vocal: Ringo Starr

I said I'm sittin' here watchin'
Matchbox hole in my clothes
I said I'm sittin' here wonderin'
Matchbox hole in my clothes
I ain't got no matches, but I sure bot a long way to go

I'm an ol' poor boy, and I'm a, long way from home
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
If you don't want to pick those peaches honey
Please don't mess around my tree
I got news for you baby, leave me here in misery
Alright

Well, let me be your little dog
Till your big dog comes
Let me be your little dog
Till your big dog comes
And when your big dog gets here
Watch how your puppy dog runs

Well, I said I'm sittin' here watchin'
Matchbox hole in my clothes
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
