FIRST OF MAY

 

           D     
      When I was small 

      
                     F#m
      and Christmas trees were tall, 

      
         G                  D                A
      we used to love while others used to play. 

      

      

      
            D
      Don't ask me why, 

      
                   F#m
      but time has passed us by, 

      
       G                 D             A
      someone else moved in from far away. 

      

      

      
           G
      Now we are tall, 

      
                      D
      and Christmas trees are small, 

      
          Em7                        D       D7
      and you don't ask the time of day. 

      

      

      
           G
      But you and I, 

      
                     D
      our love will never die, 

      
           Em7
      but guess who'll cry, 

      
   G                 D
      come first of May. 

      

      

      
   A      D
      The apple tree 

      
                    F#m
      that grew for you and me, 

      
         G                  D             A
      I watched the apples falling one by one. 

      

      

      
          D                   F#m
      And I recall the moment of  them all, 

      
           G                  D
      the day I kissed your cheek 

      
                    A
      and you were gone. 

      

      

      

           G
      Now we are tall, 

      
                      D
      and Christmas trees are small, 

      
          Em7                        D       D7
      and you don't ask the time of day. 

      

      

      
           G
      But you and I, 

      
                     D
      our love will never die, 

      
           Em7
      but guess who'll cry, 

      
   G                 D
      come first of May.
