[Chorus]

 Em                       Am        D7                       Gmaj7
Strumming my pain with my fingers.  singing my life with his words.
 Em                        A7                  D              C
Killing me softly with his song.  Killing me softly with his song.
           G                    C6
Telling my whole life with his words.
            Fmaj7b5            E
Killing me softly,  with his song.      

[Verse]                                      
Am7        D7                       
I heard he sang a good song.    
Gmaj7       C                       
I heard he had a style.      
Am7        D7                     
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                       Gmaj7
Strumming my pain with my fingers.  singing my life with his words.
 Em                        A7                  D              C
Killing me softly with his song.  Killing me softly with his song.
           G                    C6
Telling my whole life with his words.
            Fmaj7b5            E
Killing me softly,  with his song. 

[Verse]
Am7        D7   
I felt all flushed with fever 
Gmaj7       C     
embarrassed by the crowd.
Am7        D7   
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                       Gmaj7
Strumming my pain with my fingers.  singing my life with his words.
 Em                        A7                  D              C
Killing me softly with his song.  Killing me softly with his song.
           G                    C6
Telling my whole life with his words.
            Fmaj7b5            E
Killing me softly,  with his song. 

[Verse]
Am7        D7   
He sang as if knew me 
Gmaj7       C     
in all my dark despair.
Am7           D7   
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                       Gmaj7
Strumming my pain with my fingers.  singing my life with his words.
 Em                        A7                  D              C
Killing me softly with his song.  Killing me softly with his song.
           G                    C6
Telling my whole life with his words.
            Fmaj7b5            E
Killing me softly,  with his song.
