Killing Me Softly With His Song
Roberta Flack

[Chorus]
Em                         Am
Strumming my pain with his fingers
D7                       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 
Killing me softly
         E
with his song.


[Instrumental Break] 
Am7 D - Am7 D - Am7 D - Am7 D


[Verse]
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
and listen for a while.
Am7            D7
  And there he was this young boy
G            B7
  a stranger to my eyes.


[Chorus]
Em                          Am
Strumming my pain with his fingers
D7                       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
Killing me softly
          E
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
Strumming my pain with his fingers
D7                       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
Killing me softly
         E
with his song.


[Verse]
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
as if I wasn't there.
Am7          D7
 And he just kept on singing
G        B7
 singing clear and strong.


[Chorus]
Em                          Am
Strumming my pain with his fingers
D7                       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
Killing me softly
         E
with his song.


Em     Am    D7    G
Ohhhhh,      Ohhhhhh
Em          A      D     C
La La La La La La, Ohhhh Ohhhhhh
G   C  Fmaj7 E
Lahhhhh      Lahhhh


[Chorus]
Em                         Am
Strumming my pain with his fingers
D7                       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
Killing me softly
         E
with his song

I love this!!! I was using an Esus4 in place of the Fmaj7. The Fmaj7 sings better for me! Thank you for your post, it's much appreciated!!!
