Killing me softly  Roberta Flack


























[Em]Strumming my pain with his fin[Am]gers
[D7]singing my life with his word[G]s
[Em]killing me softly with h[A]is song
killing me soft[D]ly with his [C]song
telling my [G]whole life with his [C]words.
Killing me soft[Esus4]ly
with his song[E].
[Am7]I heard he sa[D]ng a good song
[G]I heard he [C]had a style
[Am7]and so I ca[D]me to see him
and [Em]listen for a while.
[Am7]And there he wa[D7]s this young boy
[G]a stranger [B7]to my eyes.
(Chorus)
[Am7]I felt all [D]flushed with fever
[G]embarrassed [C]by the crowd.
[Am7]I felt he [D]found my letters
and [Em]read each one out loud.
[Am7]I prayed that [D]he would finish
[G]but he just [B7]kept right on.
(Chorus)
[Am7]He sang as [D]if he knew me
[G]all my [C]dark despair.
[Am7]And then he [D]looked right through me
as [Em]if I wasn't there.
[Am7]And he just [D]kept on singing
[G]singing [B7]clear and strong.
(Chorus)

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

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.
