Subject: "first cut is the deepest"

this song was originally done by Cat Stevens, but I learned the song
from Rod Stewart off of the "night on the town" album.  It is a very
easy three chord progression.  The beginning is just "C" but adding the
"F" note every second strum.

		"First Cut is The Deepest"
		(Cat Stevens) (Rod Stewart)

Intro:
   C         G
E------------3-3-3-3-|
A--3-3-3-3-3-2-2-2-2-|
D--2-2-3-2-3-0-0-0-0-|
G--0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-|
B--1-1-1-1-1-0-0-0-0-|
E--0-0-0-0-0-1-1-1-1-|

Play the intro four times over...then start singing on the "G"..

G             C        G         F         G
I would have given you all of my heart
           C               G          F     G
But theres someone who has torn it apart
         C          G          F      G
and shes taken just all that I have
           G         C            G      F     G
but if you want I'll try and love again
          C           G           F       G
babe I'll try to love again but I know

Chorus:
C         G          F                   G
The first cut is the deepest cuzz baby I know
C         G          F        G
The first cut is the deepest
        C              G           F        G
When it comes to being lucky she's cursed
        C               G       F      G
When it comes to loving me shes worse

Verse 2:

yes I want you by my side
just to help me dry the tears that I cry
and I'm sure going to give you a try
cuzz if you want I'll try to love again
baby I'll try to love again but I know

Chorus:

(Solo)

repeat verse 2  then fade.

Great job, how about trying CFG rather than CGF on the very last line of the chorus. Second last line CGF is good.

Nice job, but this intro is more appropriate. The intro should be like this

E------------3-3-3-3-|
A--3-3-3-3-3-2-2-2-2-|
D--2-2-2-2-2-0-0-0-0-|
G--0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-|
B--1-1-1-1-1-0-0-0-0-|
E--0-0-1-0-1-3-3-3-3-|
