E A D G B E
[Chorus]
Em                         Am
Strumming my pain with his fingers
D                        G
Singing my life with his words
Em                     A
Killing me softly with his song
           D           C
Killing me softly with his song
           G               C
Telling my whole life with his words
           Fmaj7           E
Killing me softly with his song


[Verse 1]
Am7        D
I heard he sang a good song
G          C
I heard he had a style
Am7      D
And so I came to see him
    Em           Em7
And listen for a while
Am7          D
And there he was this young boy
G          B7
A stranger to my eyes


[Chorus]
Em                         Am
Strumming my pain with his fingers
D                        G
Singing my life with his words
Em                     A
Killing me softly with his song
           D           C
Killing me softly with his song
           G               C
Telling my whole life with his words
           Fmaj7           E
Killing me softly with his song
 

[Verse 2]
Am7        D
I felt all flushed with fever
G          C
Embarassed by the crowd
Am7       D
I felt he found my letters
    Em             Em7
And read each one aloud
Am7           D
I prayed that he would finish
G           B7
But he just kept right on


[Chorus]
Em                         Am
Strumming my pain with his fingers
D                        G
Singing my life with his words
Em                     A
Killing me softly with his song
           D           C
Killing me softly with his song
           G               C
Telling my whole life with his words
           Fmaj7           E
Killing me softly with his song


[Verse 3]
Am7        D
He sang as if he knew me
G         C
In all my dark despair
Am7         D
And then he looked right through me
Em             Em7
As if I wasn't there
Am7         D
And he just kept on singing
G       B7
Singing clear and strong


[Chorus]
Em                         Am
Strumming my pain with his fingers
D                        G
Singing my life with his words
Em                     A
Killing me softly with his song
           D           C
Killing me softly with his song
           G               C
Telling my whole life with his words
           Fmaj7           E
Killing me softly with his song


[Bridge]
Em    Am           D        G
Oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Em              A      D   C
La la la la la, la la, woh la
G   C   Fmaj7 E
Woh la, la la la la


[Chorus]
Em                         Am
Strumming my pain with his fingers
D                        G
Singing my life with his words
Em                     A
Killing me softly with his song
           D           C
Killing me softly with his song
           G               C
Telling my whole life with his words
           Fmaj7           E
Killing me softly with his song

Yeah I like this version the best, except, I prefer a straight out F chord over the Fmaj7. Thanks. Also, when I do the E after the F, i play the E and then with the same shape, slide it up and down 1 fret. Check out the song, you'll see what I mean.
