American Top 40, May 13, 1972

Topping the charts this week in 1972:

  1.  The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face - Roberta Flack

  2. I Gotcha - Joe Tex

  3. Oh Girl Chi-Lites

  4. I'll Take You There - Staple Singers

  5. Rockin' Robin - Michael Jackson

  6. Betcha By Golly Wow - Stylistics

  7. Look What You Done For Me - Al Green

  8. Day Dreaming - Aretha Franklin

  9. Back Off Boogaloo - Ringo Starr

  10. Horse With No Name -  America
