I Loved Her First (capo 2nd fret) Key of E

Intro
D (6 counts),
Bm (6 counts)
G(3 counts) F#m(3 counts),
Em (3 counts), A (3 counts)

Note:  The G to the F#m is really just changing the top two strings. Play the F#m like a
but with your pointer on the second fret of the top string- let go with your middle
and keep the rest the same. This is a walkdown- do this EVERY time you see a G to a F#m 
hold the rest of that G shape. I will write it as F#m (G) so you remember you are mostly
a G with only a couple of F#m notes.

VERSE I
D                        Bm
Look at the two of you dancing that way
G          F#m(G)         Em          A
Lost in the moment and each others face
D                     Bm
So much in love your alone in this place
             G      F#m(G)       A
Like there's nobody else in the world


VERSE II
D                      Bm
I was enough for her not long ago
G          F#m(G)     Em          A
I was her number one, She told me so
D                                    Bm
And she still means the world to me, Just so you know
        G          F#m          A
So be careful when you hold my girl


BRIDGE
Bm                        G
Time changes everything, Life must go on
       D                         A
And I'm not gonna stand in your way

CHORUS
D                                     Bm
But I loved her first and I held her first
                   G          F#m(G)    Em           A
And a place in my heart will always be hers ….  From the first breath she
D                                  Bm
Breathed ……When she first smiled at me
            G         F#m(G)     Em    A
I knew the love of a father runs deep……..
        Em               F#m(G)      G     F#m(G)
And I prayed that she'd find you someday………………..
           Em          F#m(G)      A
But it still hard to give her away………………….
              D
I loved her first

******(For transition sake, just play the intro 1 time here before the next verse)


VERSE III
D                         Bm
How could that beautiful women with you
G            F#m(G)         Em       A
Be the same freckle face kid that I knew
D                               Bm
The one that I read all those fairy tales to
       G       F#m(G)          A
And tucked into bed all those nights

BRIDGE
Bm                           G
And I knew the first time I saw you with her
      D                  A
It was only a matter of time

CHORUS

And a place in my heart will always be hers ….  From the first breath she
D                                   Bm
Breathed ……When she first smiled at me
             G         F#m(G)   Em      A
I knew the love of a father runs deep……..
        Em              F#m(G)      G            F#m(G)
And I prayed that she'd find you someday………………..
           Em        F#m(G)      A
But it still hard to give her away………………….
           D   Bm   G   F#(G) Em
              A
I loved her first………..........................From the first breath she
D                                   Bm
Breathed,  When she first smiled at me
           G         F#m(G)      Em       A
I knew the love of a father runs deep……………..
             Em             F#(G)       G        F#(G)
Someday you might know what I'm going through…………
        Em       F#(#)      A
When a miracle smiles up at you
             D     Bm       G        A      D
I loved her first………………………………………………………………………
