Texts | Chords for Tanja, Anna, Edy and Eugen

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
Fmaj7             Fmaj7           E
Killing me softly with his song.   

Verses

1:
Am7             D7
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         Em
And listen for a while
Am7          D7
And there he was this young boy
G          B7
A stranger to my eyes...

2:
Am7                D
I felt all flushed with fever
G           C
Embarrassed by the crowd
Am7       D
I felt he found my letters
Em            Em
And read each one out loud
Am7           D7
I prayed that he would finish
G           B7
But he just kept right on....


Vocalized Chorus

Em     A
Oh...
D      G
La la la la la la...
Em     A
Woh...
D      C
Lah...
G      C
Woh...
Fmaj7  Fmaj7
Lah...
E      E
Lah...


He sang as if 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 
sining clear and strong

    (CHORUS)
