Killing Me Softly
Heyy, I'm positive this is 100% right. I do it the way Colbie Caillat sings it, but I 
strum instead of finger pick.

NOTE: When you see a (~) after a chord it means only strum once.

Em~                        Am7~
Strumming my pain with his fingers
D7~                      Gm~
Singing my life with his words
Em~                        Am7~
Killing me softly with his song
             D~            C~
Killing me softly with his song
              Gm~             C~
Telling my whole life with his words
           F~              E
Killing me softly with his song

Am7        D
I heard he sang a good song
Gm         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
Gm         B7
A stranger to my eyes



Em                         Am7
Strumming my pain with his fingers

Telling my whole life with his words
           F               E
Killing me softly with his song

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



Em                         Am7
Strumming my pain with his fingers
D7                       Gm
Singing my life with his words
Em                         Am7
Killing me softly with his song
             D             C
Killing me softly with his song
              Gm              C
Telling my whole life with his words
           F               E
Killing me softly with his song



Em                         Am7
Strumming my pain with his fingers

About the artist behind Killing Me Softly:

Colbie Marie Caillat (pronounced /ˈkoʊlbi kəˈleɪ/ (info) "Kole-bee Kal-lei") (born May 28, 1985 in Newbury Park, California) is an American pop singer-songwriter and guitarist from Malibu, California. Her father, Ken Caillat, co-produced Fleetwood Mac's Rumours and Tusk albums; Caillat recalls being around the likes of Mick Fleetwood and John McVie as a child.[1]

The popularity of Caillat's MySpace profile led her to become the number-one unsigned singer in her genre for four months.[2] Her popularity on the social network was partially due to her song "Bubbly," and the songs on her profile have been played more than forty-two million times (as of May 31st, 2008).[3] For the week of July 17, 2007, "Bubbly" was featured on the iTunes Store as the free "Single of the Week". The promotion coincided with the release of Coco, her debut studio album. Caillat was also spotlighted by Rhapsody during the 2007 Black Friday Sale at Best Buy.

According to her MySpace profile, Caillat was first inspired to start singing at age eleven when she first heard the Fugees' 1996 version of the song "Killing Me Softly", made famous by Roberta Flack in 1973. Her MySpace profile also states that, though trained at piano from an early age, Caillat did not begin playing guitar until age nineteen.

In May 2008, Caillat recorded a duet with Jason Mraz, called "Lucky," on his album, We Sing, We Dance, We Steal Things.[4] The same month, Caillat recorded a cover of the song "Kiss the Girl" from The Little Mermaid for Disney's DisneyMania vol. 6 CD.[5]

Caillat is currently shooting another music video in Hawaii for her song "The Little Things."[6]
