The First Time I Saw You (sheet music + TAB)


My arrangement of Birger Sjöberg’s “The First Time I Saw You” (Den Första Gång Jag Såg Dig).
Birger Sjöberg (1885–1929) was a Swedish poet, novelist and songwriter, whose best-known works include the song collection “Fridas Bok” (Frida’s Book) and the novel “Kvartetten Som Sprängdes” (The Quartet That Split Up), a somewhat Dickensian relation about stock exchange gambling in the twenties, and the frantic efforts to recover.
“Den första gång jag såg dig” (The first time I saw you) is from the collection “Frida’s Book”.
I made a “jazzy” version here…
Until I make a video, here is Swedish singer Tommy Körberg singing a beautiful version:
