Killing Me Softly

Fugees



CHORUS
 EmAm
Strumming my pain with his fingers,
 DGmaj7
Singing my life with his words.                        
 EmA9/c#
Killing me softly with his song,
 DC
Killing me softly with his song;
 Gmaj7Cmaj7
telling my whole life, with his words,
 Fmaj7E
Killing me softly -- with his song.

Verse 1
 Am7D
 I heard he sang a good song,
 Gmaj7Cmaj7
 I heard he had a style,
 Am7DEmEm7
 And so I went to see him and listen for awhile.
 Am7D
 And there he was this young boy
 Gmaj7B7
 A stranger to my eyes.

*Chorus*

Verse 2
 Am7D
 I felt all flushed with fever,
 Gmaj7Cmaj7
 Embarassed by the crowd.
 Am7D
 I felt he found my letters,
 EmEm7
 And read each one out loud.
 Am7D
 I prayed that he would finish,
 Gmaj7B7
 But he just kept right on.

*Chorus*

Verse 3
 Am7D
 He sang as if he knew me,
 Gmaj7Cmaj7
 In all my dark despair.
 Am7D
 And then he looked right through me as if,
 EmEm7
 As if I wasn't there.
 Am7D
 He just kept right on,
 Gmaj7B7
 Singin' loud and strong.

*Chorus* repeat

That's it, any questions or comments, let me know!
