Killing Me Softly With his Song

Song Author Charles Fox Lyrics by: Norman Gimbel Performer: Roberta Flack Submitted by: Anonymous
[Dm7]I heard he [G]sang a good song,
[C] I heard he [F]had a style
[Dm7]And so I [G]came to see him,
to [Am]listen for a while
[Dm7]And there he [G]was this young boy,
[C] a stranger [E7]to my eyes

[Am]Strumming my pain with his [Dm]fingers,
[G]Singing my life with his [C]words
[Am]Killing me softly with [D/F#]his song,
killing me [G]softly with his [F]song
Telling my [C]whole life with his [F]words,
killing me so[Bb]ftly with his [A]song

[Dm7]I felt all [G]flushed with fever,
[C] embarassed [F]by the crowd
[Dm7]I felt he [G]found my letters
and [Am]read each one out loud
[Dm7]I prayed that [G]he would finish,
[C] but he just [E7]kept right on

[Am]Strumming my pain with his [Dm]fingers,
[G]Singing my life with his [C]words
[Am]Killing me softly with [D/F#]his song,
killing me [G]softly with his [F]song
Telling my [C]whole life with his [F]words,
killing me so[Bb]ftly with his [A]song

[Dm7]He sang as [G]if he knew me,
[C] in all my [F]dark despair
[Dm7]And then he [G]looked right through me
as [Am]if I wasn't there
[Dm7]But he was [G]there this stranger,
[C] singing [E7]clear and strong

[Am]Strumming my pain with his [Dm]fingers,
[G]Singing my life with his [C]words
[Am]Killing me softly with [D/F#]his song,
killing me [G]softly with his [F]song
Telling my [C]whole life with his [F]words,
killing me so[Bb]ftly with his [A]song

I heard he sang a good song,
I heard he had a style
And so I came to see him,
to listen for a while
And there he was this young boy,
a stranger to my eyes

Strumming my pain with his fingers,
Singing my life with his words
Killing me softly with his song,
killing me softly with his song
Telling my whole life with his words,
killing me softly with his song

I felt all flushed with fever,
embarassed 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

Strumming my pain with his fingers,
Singing my life with his words
Killing me softly with his song,
killing me softly with his song
Telling my whole life with his words,
killing me softly with his song

He sang as if he knew me,
in all my dark despair
And then he looked right through me
as if I wasn't there
But he was there this stranger,
singing clear and strong

Strumming my pain with his fingers,
Singing my life with his words
Killing me softly with his song,
killing me softly with his song
Telling my whole life with his words,
killing me softly with his song
