                      "killing me softly"
 Em                       Am        D7                       G
Strumming my pain with my fingers.  singing my life with his words.
 G                      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.      
                                        G:  320033
Am7            D                        A:  x02220
    I heard he sang the good song.      Am: x02210 
G              C                        B7: 224232
    I heard he had a style.             C:  x32010
Am7           D                         D:  xx0232
    And so I came to see him,           D7: xx0212
        Em                             Am7: x02010
    and listen for a while.          Esus4: 02220x
Am7              D7                     E:  022100
    And there he was a young boy        Em: 02200x
G             B7
   a stranger to my eyes.


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


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

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!

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
