Song : E
Intro :
Dm7 G
I heard he sang a good song
C F
I heard she had a style
Dm7 G
And so I came to see him,
Am
and listen for a while
Dm7 G7
And there he was this young boy
C E7
a stranger to my eyes.

Chorus :
Am Dm
Strumming my pain with his fingers
G7 C
Singing my life with his words
Am D
Killing me softly with his song
G F
Killing me softly with his song
C F
Telling my whole life with his words
Bb A
Killing me softly, with his song

Dm7 G
I felt all flushed with fever
C F
embarrassed by the crowd.
Dm7 G
I felt he found my letters
Am
and read each one out loud.
Dm7 G7
I prayed that he would finish
C E7
but he just kept right on.

Chorus

Dm7 G
He sang as if he knew me
C F
in all my dark despair.
Dm7 G
And then he looked right through me
Am
as if I wasn't there.
Dm7 G7
And he just kept on singing
C E7
singing clear and strong

Chorus
A4 A
Killing me softly, with his song
