First Time Ever I Saw Your Face  Johnny Cash

[Dm]The first time[G]...ever I [C]saw your face,
[Am7]I thought the sun rose.[Em7] your [F]eyes.
[C] And the moon and stars.[G]..were the [C]gifts you gave,
To the d[Bb]ark...and the endless [C]sky, my love.
And the [Dm]first time[G]...ever I [C]kissed your mouth,
[Am7]I felt the earth move.[Em7]..through my [F]hands.
[C] Like the trembling heart.[G]..of a captive [C]bird
[Bb]That was my com[C]mand.

And the [Dm]first time[G]...ever I [C]laid with you,
[Am7]I felt your heart.[Em7] close to [F]mine.
And I [C]know our joy.[G]..would [C]fill the earth,
And [Bb]last...till the end of [C]time, my love.

[Dm]  The [Dm]first time...ever I s[C]aw...y[G]our...f[C]ace.

(to my little elf...)
