[Chorus]
 Em                        Am        D7                       G
Strumming my pain with his fingers.  singing my life with his words.
 Em                      A                       D        C
Killing me softly with his song.  Killing me softly with his song.
           G               C
Telling my whole life with his words.
            F             E
Killing me softly,  with his song.      
     
[Verse 1]
Am7        D                        
I heard he sang the 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 a young boy        
G             B7
a stranger to my eyes.

[Chorus]
 Em                        Am        D7                       G
Strumming my pain with his fingers.  singing my life with his words.
 Em                      A                       D        C
Killing me softly with his song.  Killing me softly with his song.
           G               C
Telling my whole life with his words.
            F             E
Killing me softly,  with his song. 

[Verse 2]
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        D7                       G
Strumming my pain with his fingers.  singing my life with his words.
 Em                      A                       D        C
Killing me softly with his song.  Killing me softly with his song.
           G               C
Telling my whole life with his words.
            F             E
Killing me softly,  with his song. 

[Chorus]
 Em                        Am        D7                       G
Strumming my pain with his fingers.  singing my life with his words.
 Em                      A                       D        C
Killing me softly with his song.  Killing me softly with his song.
           G               C
Telling my whole life with his words.
            F             E
Killing me softly,  with his song. 

[Verse 3]
Am7            D  
He sang as if 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
sining clear and strong

[Chorus]
 Em                        Am        D7                       G
Strumming my pain with his fingers.  singing my life with his words.
 Em                      A                       D        C
Killing me softly with his song.  Killing me softly with his song.
           G               C
Telling my whole life with his words.
            F             E
Killing me softly,  with his song.

I think I like the A in the chorus better as an Am, and the last C in the chorus as well. Other than that, it's fine, and thanks for the last verse, I've never seen those lyrics before!
