Killing me softly with his song...

E     F      G      A    G     D      G
I heard he sang a good song,

A    G      F    E     F   D-C
I heard he had a style

E       F   G    A     G   A     B
And so I came to see him,

G       ^C -  B     A   G    A
And listened for a while...

^C      A       F    E-D     D       E         F
And there he was, this young boy,

E    G - G     G   G#   G#-A-B
A stranger to my eyes    ~
