The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face  Roberta Flack

[C]  [Dm]  [G7]  [C]  [Dm]  [G]                                  

The [Dm]first time  [G]    
Ever I [C]saw your face
I [Am]thought the sun rose in your [Em]eye--[F]s
And the [C]moon and the stars
were the [Bb]gifts you gave to the dark
and the end of the [C]skies

The [Dm]first time  [G]
Ever I [C]kissed your mouth
I [Am]felt the earth move in my [Em]ha--[F]nd,
Like a [C]trembling heart
of a [Bb]captive bird,
that was there at my [C]birth.
And the [Dm]first time  [G]
Ever I [C]lay with you
I [Am]felt your heart so close to [Em]mi--[F]ne
And I [C]knew our joy
would [Bb]fill the earth
and last till the end of [C]time

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.
