[CHORUS]
Em                           Am
Strummin' my pain with his fingers
D                        G
Singin' my life with his words
Em                       Am
Killing me softly with his song
              D         C                   G
Killing me softly with his song telling my whole life
          C                 F               E
With his words killing me softly with his song

[VERSE]

I heard he sang a good song

I heard he had a style

And so I came to see him

And listen for a while

And there he was this young boy

A stranger to my eyes

[CHORUS]
Em                           Am
Strummin' my pain with his fingers
D                        G
Singin' my life with his words
Em                       Am
Killing me softly with his song
              D         C                   G
Killing me softly with his song telling my whole life
          C                 F               E
With his words killing me softly with his song

[VERSE]

I felt all flushed with fever

Embarrassed by the crowd

I felt he found my letters

And read each one out loud

I prayed that he would finish

But he just kept right on

[CHORUS]
Em                           Am
Strummin' my pain with his fingers
D                        G
Singin' my life with his words
Em                       Am
Killing me softly with his song
              D         C                   G
Killing me softly with his song telling my whole life
          C                 F               E
With his words killing me softly with his song

[INSTRUMENTAL] Em Am D G 
[INSTRUMENTAL] Em Am D C G C F E

[CHORUS]
Em                           Am
Strummin' my pain with his fingers
D                        G
Singin' my life with his words
Em                       Am
Killing me softly with his song
              D         C                   G
Killing me softly with his song telling my whole life
          C                 F               E
With his words killing me softly with his song
