The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face.

 DmGCAm
 The first time ever I saw your face  
 EmF
I thought the sun rose in your eyes  
 C
And the moon and the stars were the gifts you gave
 BbC
to the dark and the endless skies my love

to the dark and the endless skies

And the first time ever I kissed your mouth
I felt the earth move in my ha - a - nd,
like a trembling heart of a captive bird,
that was there at my command my love
that was there at my command my love

And the first time ever I lay with you
I felt your heart so close to mine
and I knew our joy would fill the earth
and last till the end of time my love
and it would last till the end of time my love

The first time ever I saw your face
your face
your fa - a - ce
your face

Roberta flack though very talented is not the originator of the song " the first time ever I saw your face" credit where it's due Ewan Macholl wrote & performed this song for Peggy Seeger.
