"First Of May"
(Barry, Maurice, and Robin Gibb)
(piano, harp, and strings):
[D] [G] [D] [A]  
[/] [/] [/] [/] [/] [/] [/] [/] [/] [/] [/] [/] [/] [/] [/] [/] 
Verse 1:
When [D]I was small and Christmas [F#m/C#]trees were tall
We u[G]sed to love while o[D]thers used to p[A]lay
(strings enter)
D[D]on't ask me why, but time has [F#m/C#]passed us by
S[G]omeone else moved [D]in from far aw[A]ay
Now [G]we are tall and Christmas tr[D]ees are small
And [Em]you don't ask the time of d[D]ay[D7]
But y[G]ou and I, our love will ne[D]ver die
Em G (1: /A) D (1: A (band enters))
But guess who'll cry come First of May
Verse 2:
The apple tree that grew for you and me
I watched the apples falling one by one
And I recall the moment of them all
The day I kissed your cheek and you were gone
Now we are tall and Christmas trees are small
And you don't ask the time of day
But you and I, our love will never die
But guess who'll cry come First of May
(piano, acoustic guitar, and strings):
When [D]I was small and Christmas [F#m/C#]trees were tall
[G] [D] [A]  
 Do-do-do-do-do do-do-do do-do

Don't ask me why but time has passed us by
Someone else moved in from far away (fade)
-- another ace 60's tab from Andrew Rogers
