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.

Killing me softly
             E
with his song.
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          H7
a stranger to my eyes.
(Chorus)

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)

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.
And he just kept on singing
singing clear and strong.

(Chorus)
