First Cut Is The Deepest

Words & Music:

Cat Stevens


C            G         F         G

I would have given you all of my heart.

            C               G        F    G

But there's someone who has torn it apart.

          C          G          F

And she's taken just all that I have.

    G                C             G   F   G

But if you want I'll try and love again.

           C            F           G

Babe, I'll try to love again, but I know.



C         G          F        G       C

The first cut is the deepest; 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 she's worse.


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.

'Cause if you want I'll try to love again.

Baby, I'll try to love again but I know...
