Killing Me Softly  Fugees



CHORUS
Str[Em]umming my pain with his fi[Am]ngers,
Sin[D]ging my life with his [Gmaj7]words.                        
Kil[Em]ling me softly with h[A9/c#]is song,
Killing me so[D]ftly with h[C]is song;
telling my who[Gmaj7]le life, with h[Cmaj7]is words,
Killing me [Fmaj7]softly -- with his s[E]ong.
Verse 1
[Am7]I heard he s[D]ang a good song,
[Gmaj7]I heard he had a [Cmaj7]style,
[Am7]And so I w[D]ent to see him and li[Em]sten for a[Em7]while.
[Am7]And there he w[D]as this young boy
[Gmaj7]A stranger [B7]to my eyes.

*Chorus*

Verse 2
[Am7]I felt all [D]flushed with fever,
[Gmaj7]Embarassed[Cmaj7] by the crowd.
[Am7]I felt he fo[D]und my letters,
[Em]And read each one out [Em7]loud.
[Am7]I prayed that [D]he would finish,
[Gmaj7]But he just k[B7]ept right on.

*Chorus*

Verse 3
[Am7]He sang as [D]if he knew me,
[Gmaj7]In all my [Cmaj7]dark despair.
[Am7]And then he l[D]ooked right through me as if,
[Em]As if I wasn't [Em7]there.
[Am7]He just k[D]ept right on,
[Gmaj7]Singin' l[B7]oud and strong.

*Chorus* repeat
