[Chorus]

 Em                       Am        D7                       G
Strumming my pain with my fingers.  singing my life with his words.
 Em                      A                       D        C
Killing me softly with his song.  Killing me softly with his song.
           G               C
Telling my whole life with his words.
            Esus4             E
Killing me softly,  with his song.      


[Verse]
                                      
Am7        D                       
I heard he sang the good song.    
G          C                       
I heard he had a style.      
Am7        D                     
And so I came to see him,     
    Em                             
and listen for a while.          
Am7          D7                    
And there he was a young boy        
G          B7
a stranger to my eyes.


[Chorus]

 Em                       Am        D7                       G
Strumming my pain with my fingers.  singing my life with his words.
 Em                      A                       D        C
Killing me softly with his song.  Killing me softly with his song.
           G               C
Telling my whole life with his words.
            Esus4             E
Killing me softly,  with his song.      


[Verse]

Am7        D   
I felt all flushed with fever 
G          C     
embarrassed by the crowd.
Am7        D   
I felt he found my letters 
    Em       
and read each one out loud.
Am7          D7    
I prayed that he would finish
G          B7
but he just kept right on.


[Chorus]

 Em                       Am        D7                       G
Strumming my pain with my fingers.  singing my life with his words.
 Em                      A                       D        C
Killing me softly with his song.  Killing me softly with his song.
           G               C
Telling my whole life with his words.
            Esus4             E
Killing me softly,  with his song.      


[Verse]

Am7        D   
He sang as if knew me 
G          C     
in all my dark despair.
Am7        D   
And then he looked right through me
    Em  
as if I wasn't there.
Am7          D7    
And he just kept on singing 
G          B7
sining clear and strong


[Chorus]

 Em                       Am        D7                       G
Strumming my pain with my fingers.  singing my life with his words.
 Em                      A                       D        C
Killing me softly with his song.  Killing me softly with his song.
           G               C
Telling my whole life with his words.
            Esus4             E
Killing me softly,  with his song.

Hey Mikhailo, in the chorus you used 2 wrong chords - "G" at the first "killing me softly with his song" has to be "Em" and "Esus4" at the last "killing me softly with his song" has to be "F".
I can send you "my version" of this song - I transposed it to key A.

verse: Bm7 E7/G# A D
Bm7 E7 F#m
Bm E7 A C# C#sus4/D# C#/E#
chorus: F#m7 Bm7 E A /G#
F#m /E B/D# E D
A D G F#

See what you'll do with it!
Greetings,

hey, this may be a silly question but how is it meant to sound? A friend pointed this song out to me and the chords are really no problem but I just cant get any melody behind it. And I dont know if its only my version but the fugees origal does not seem to have a guitar in the background either. It sounds more like accapela with drums ... anybody's got a sample or something perhaps? thanks
