Fm 
Strumming my

pain with his fingers, singing my life  
Fm 
with his words
 
Killing  
A#m 
me softly with his song, killing  
G# 
me softly  
C# 
with his  
F# 
song
 
Telling my whole life  
F 
with 
 
 
Aaug 
his words, killing me  
G# 
softly with his  
D# 
song

I heard he sang a good song, I heard he had a style

 
And so I came to see  
G# 
him to  
C# 
listen for a while
A#m 
And there  
D# 
he was  
Fm 
this young boy, a stranger  
A#m 
to my eyes
 
G# 
Strumming my pain with his fingers,  
Fm 
singing 
 
 
A#m 
my life  
D# 
with his words
G# 
Killing me  
Fm 
G#maj7 
softly with  
A# 
his song, killing me  
D# 
softly with

his 
 
song
G# 
Telling my whole  
C# 
life 
 
 
G# 
with 
 
 
A#m 
his words, killing me  
F 
softly with his song
 
I felt all flushed with  
G# 
fever, embarrassed  
C# 
by the crowd
A#m 
I felt he  
D# 
found my  
Fm 
letters and read each one out loud
D# 
I prayed  
G# 
that he would finish but  
Fm 
he just kept  
A#m 
right 
 
on
D# 
 
Strumming my  
G# 
pain with  
Fm 
his fingers,  
A# 
singing my life  
D# 
with his  
C# 
words
 
Killing me  
G# 
softly with  
C# 
his song, killing me softly with his  
F 
song
 
Telling my whole life  
A#m 
with his  
D# 
words, killing  
G# 
me softly with  
C# 
his 
 
song
A#m 
 
He sang  
D# 
as if  
Fm 
he knew me in all my dark  
D# 
despair
 
And then  
G# 
he looked right through  
Fm 
me as if  
A#m 
I wasn’t  
D# 
there
 
And he  
G# 
just kept  
Fm 
on singing,  
A# 
singing clear and  
D# 
strong
 
C# 
Strumming my pain with his fingers, singing my life with his words
F 
Killing me softly with his  
Fm 
song, killing me softly  
D# 
with his song
G# 
Telling my whole  
Fm 
life with his words, killing  
D# 
me softly with  
C# 
his

song
 
Strumming  
C# 
my pain with  
A#m 
his 
 
 
F# 
fingers, singing my life with

his 
 
words
 
Killing  
Fm 
me softly  
A#m 
with his  
D# 
song, killing me  
G# 
softly with  
Fm 
his 
 
song

Telling my whole life
