this song was originally done by Cat Stevens, but I learned the song
from Rod Stewart off of the "night on the town" album.  It is a very
easy three chord progression.  The beginning is just "C" but adding the
"F" note every second strum.

  "First Cut is The Deepest"
  (Cat Stevens) (Rod Stewart)

A D-shape without index finger then a moveable=20
Aminor-shape gets the job done.
