First Time Ever I Saw Your Face

Johnny Cash

 DmGC
 The first time...ever I saw your face,
 Am7Em7F
 I thought the sun rose...in your eyes.
 CGC
  And the moon and stars...were the gifts you gave,
 BbC
To the dark...and the endless sky, my love.

(3-2-0)
 DmGC
And the first time...ever I kissed your mouth,
 Am7Em7F
 I felt the earth move...through my hands.
 CGC
  Like the trembling heart...of a captive bird
 BbC
 That was there...at my command.

(3-2-0)
 DmGC
And the first time...ever I laid with you,
 Am7Em7F
 I felt your heart...so close to mine.
 CGC
And I know our joy...would fill the earth,
 BbC
And last...till the end of time, my love.

 DmDmCGC
   The first time...ever I saw...your...face.


(to my little elf...)
