Killing me softly

Roberta Flack



 EmAm
 Strumming my pain with his fingers
 D7G
 singing my life with his words
 EmA
 killing me softly with his song
 DC
killing me softly with his song
 GC
telling my whole life with his words.
 Esus4
Killing me softly
 E
with his song.
 Am7D
 I heard he sang a good song
 GC
 I heard he had a style
 Am7D
 and so I came to see him
 Em
and listen for a while.
 Am7D7
 And there he was this young boy
 GB7
 a stranger to my eyes.
(Chorus)
 Am7D
 I felt all flushed with fever
 GC
 embarrassed by the crowd.
 Am7D
 I felt he found my letters
 Em
and read each one out loud.
 Am7D
 I prayed that he would finish
 GB7
 but he just kept right on.
(Chorus)
 Am7D
 He sang as if he knew me
 GC
 all my dark despair.
 Am7D
 And then he looked right through me
 Em
as if I wasn't there.
 Am7D
 And he just kept on singing
 GB7
 singing clear and strong.
(Chorus)

If you want to play the song with the track put a capo on the first fret. Also, there's something off with the G chord that I haven't quite figured out yet.

I think you should replace Esus4 with F it plays & sings better.
