Killing Me Softly

	  		Em                          Am   
Strumming my pain with his fingers,    
D7                       G                      
Singing my life with his words,    
Em                     A   
Killing me softly with his song,    
           D           C      
Killing me softly with his song,    
           G               C   
Telling my whole life with his words,    
           Am7             Bsus   
Killing me softly with his song.    


Am7        D              
I heard he sang a good song,    
G           C   
I heard he had a style    
Am7        D                   
And so I came to see him,   
Em              Em  
to listen for a while    
Am7          D7      
And there he was a young boy   
G          B7   
a stranger to my eyes    


Em                           Am   
Strumming my pain with his fingers,    
D7                         G   
Singing my life with his words,    
Em                     A   
Killing me softly with his song,   
           D           C   
Killing me softly with his song,   
           G               C    
Telling my whole life with his words,   
           Am7             Bsus  
Killing me softly with his song    


Am7         D          
I felt all flushed with fever,   
G           C   
Embarrassed by the crowd,   
Am7       D             
I felt he found my letters    
Em                    Em   
and read each one out loud.   
Am7          D7      
I prayed that he would finish,   
G           B7   
But he just kept right on    


Em                           Am   
strumming my pain with his fingers,   
D7                         G   
Singing my life with his words,   
Em                         A   
Killing me softly with his song,   
            D         C   
Killing me softly with his song,   
            G               C    
Telling my whole life with his words,   
           Am7             Bsus           
Killing me softly with his song   


Am7        D          
He sang as if he knew me    
G         C   
in all my dark despair   
Am7         D             
and then he looked right through me    
Em                  Em  
as if I wasn?t there    
Am7         D7      
and he just kept on singing    
G         B7   
singing   clear and strong   


Em                         Am   
Strumming my pain with his fingers   
D7                       G   
singing my life with his words    
Em                     A   
killing me softly with his song   
           D           C   
killing me softly with his song    
           G               C    
telling my whole life with his words    
           Am7             Bsus  
Killing me softly with his song.    


Em                         Am   
Strumming my pain with his fingers   
D7                       G   
singing my life with his words    
Em                     A   
killing me softly with his song   
           D           C   
killing me softly with his song    
           G               C    
telling my whole life with his words    
           Am7             Bsus           
Killing me softly with his song.
