First Time Ever I Saw Your Face Chords
THE FIRST TIME EVER I SAW YOUR FACE  (Johnny Cash, cover)    [AL#13]

Intro:  C(2x) - Dm - G   (1 note: x-xx, and so on...)

    Dm         G        C             (3-2-0)
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                 (3-2-0)
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             (3-2-0)
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 
  The first time...ever I saw...your...face.

About the artist behind First Time Ever I Saw Your Face Chords:

Johnny Cash, born J. R. Cash, (February 26, 1932 - September 12, 2003) was a Grammy Award-winning American country singer-songwriter. Cash is widely considered to be one of the most influential American musicians of the 20th century.

Cash was known for his deep, distinctive voice, the boom-chick-a-boom or "freight train" sound of his Tennessee Three backing band, his demeanor, and his dark clothing, which earned him the nickname "The Man in Black." He traditionally started his concerts with the introduction "Hello, I'm Johnny Cash."

Much of Cash's music, especially that of his later career, echoed themes of sorrow, moral tribulation, and redemption. His signature songs include "I Walk the Line," "Folsom Prison Blues," "Ring of Fire," "Get Rhythm," "That Old Wheel" (a duet with Hank Williams Jr.), "Cocaine Blues," and "Man in Black". He also recorded several humorous songs, such as "One Piece at a Time," "The One on the Right Is on the Left," "Dirty Old Egg-Sucking Dog," "A Boy Named Sue," and a duet with June Carter called "Jackson"; and various railroad songs, such as "Rock Island Line" and "Orange Blossom Special".

He sold over 90 million albums in his nearly fifty-year career and came to occupy a "commanding position in music history".[1]
