Killing me softly

   Beginnt mit  Refrain                               

       Am7             D                                             
 I heard he sang the good song.    
G              C
I heard he had a style.    

                     Am7                     D                        Em
 And so I came to see him, and listen for a while.    

                                Am7              D7                   

 And there he was a young boy    
     E              G             H7
 a stranger to my eyes.   

     Em                                         Am                              
Strumming my pain with my fingers. 
D7                                      G
singing my life with his words.

 G                                        A     
Killing me softly with his song. 
                   D                      C
Killing me softly with his song.

                     G                            C
Telling my whole life with his words.

                     Esus4             E
Killing me softly,  with his song.  

Am7            D                           G                      C
I felt all flushed with fever embarrassed by the crowd.

                    Am7           D                        Em
I felt he found my letters and read each one out loud.

                                Am7              D7       
I prayed that he would finish  
  E                    G             H7
but he just kept right on.




    Am7             D                                G              C
He sang as if knew me in all my dark despair.

                    Am7           D                      
And then he looked right through me  as
if I wasn't there.

                                Am7              D7          
And he just kept on singing
       E   G             H7
sining clear and strong
