On your guitar file you have a set of words and chords for the Ewan 
MacColl song "First Time Ever I Saw Your Face". I only know the Roberta 
Flack recording and although it's obviously the same song 
the words and particularly the chords are completely different from what 
you have written. Maybe MacColl used more than one tune.

The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face.

Dm            G       C
The first time ever I saw your face
Am                             Em   F
I thought the sun rose in your eyes
And the moon and the stars were the gifts you gave 
       Bb           C
to the dark and the end of the skies

The first time ever I kissed your mouth
I felt the earth move in my hand,
like a trembling heart of a captive bird,
that was there at my birth.

And the first time ever I lay with you
I felt your heart so close to mine
and I knew our joy would fill the earth
and last till the end of time
