                 KILLING ME SOFTLY WITH HIS SONG - Roberta Flack
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: jmnikricket

This is my first attempt at a tab. 4 finger chord melody version of a classic.
It's a half step lower than Roberta sings it (or just capo 1), but it makes it
very easy to play. I include the base chords as a reference, but with the melody
line over top they may not be 100% accurate. Also the chorus has some
embellishments that aren't part of the song. Take them or leave them, I like
them :) One of my favorites on acoustic. Any comments or suggestions email me at
