Roberta Flack - The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face 


C(2x) Dm  G   

    Dm         G        C             
The first time...ever I saw your face, 
Am7                    Em7       F
I thought the sun rose...in your eyes.
C                       G          C
 And the moon and stars...were the gifts you gave,
        Bb                    C 
To the dark...and the endless sky, my love.

        Dm         G        C                 
And the first time...ever I kissed your mouth,
Am7                   Em7          F
I felt the earth move...through my hands.
C                         G              C
 Like the trembling heart...of a captive bird
Bb                        C 
That was there...at my command.

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

Dm    Dm          C      G   C              Dm             Em7/Bb        
The first time...ever I saw...your...face.      your...face.    Your...face.

Great Job! I will not change a bit. However when I begin to play it and I realized that if I play it with high notes it will sounds almost like the recorded version.

Check this up the same chords by different structure

Dm 00010.10.10
G 355433
Em7 779987
Bb 688766
Am7 577555
