[Refrain]

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.
           Esus4
Killing me softly
         E
with his song.


[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          Am7   H7
a stranger to my eyes.


[Refrain]

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.
           Esus4
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           Am7        H7
but he just kept right on.


[Refrain]

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.
           Esus4
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       Am7       H7
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.
           Esus4
Killing me softly
         E
with his song.

I didn't know there was an H chord. I thought the notes only went as far as G.

"B, also known as Si, Ti, or, in some European countries, H, is the seventh note of the fixed-Do solfège."
