First Time Ever I Saw Your Face - Roberta Flack  
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Id_UYLPSn6U

Intro:  G  Em  C  G  Am  F  Em  Dm (x3)

V1
               G Dm  Em  F Em  C    G     C/G
The first time,  e - ver I saw your face,
Am        F   Am7  G                 Am G F Em F
I thought the sun, rose, in your eye -  - - -  es,
G                     F C         G7  C         G
And the moon, and the stars, were the gifts you gave,
   A#                C  G7   C    G
To the dark, and the endless sky, my love,
   A#                   G7   C    Dm
To the dark, and the endless sky,

V2
                   G  Dm  Em  F Em     C    G     C/G
And the first time,   e - ver I kissed your mouth,
Am     F   Am7    Em         C  Am G F Em F
I felt the earth, move in my ha -  - - -  ands,
G                  F C    G7   C       G
Like the trembling heart, of a captive bird,
A#                 C  G7 C     G        Dm
That was there, at my command; my love.

V3
                   G  Dm  Em  F Em  C    G     C G7 Am
And the first time,   e - ver I lay with you,
Am     F    Am7    Em          C  Am G F Em F
I felt your heart, so close to mi -  - - -  ne,
    G           F  C   G7    C        G 
And I knew, our jo-oy, would fill the earth,
A#          C                     G         Dm
Would last, till the end of time; my love.
G      A#                   C   G  
And it would last, till the end of time

Outro:
    Dm                 C F Dm  C 
The first time, ever I sa - w  your face,

Dm           C        F     G           Dm  C
Your face,   your fa--ce,   your face.
