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.
[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.
[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.

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

Killing Me Softly Roberta Flack

Dm7 G
I heard he sang a good song
I heard he had a style
Dm7 G
and so I came to see him
to listen for a while.
Dm7 G
And there he was this young boy
a stranger to my eyes.

Am F
Strumming my pain with his fingers
singing my life with his words
Am D
killing me softly with his song
killing me softly with his song
telling my whole life with his words.
Killing me softly
with his song.

..... etc etc

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 like when it is put through out the song. Easier to learn, andplay.
