Subject: TAB:  "Killing me softly" "Fugees"  chords+tab+lyrics

I loved this song, thought it was a good tab, but the chords weren't there,  
so now you can pplay both at once :) plus all this stuff at the top is 
annoying, so cut down, Reach me to bitch, praise at: KiloKyle@aol.com

This is the Fugee's version of "Killing Me Softly" which is by Charles Fox,
and the lyrics are by Norman Gimbel.  I tabbed along with the melody, 
so it includes all the "whoas" and other voice effects.  If I have
forgotten any, please let me now because I don't have this song on tape, so
I'm doing it from memory.  Crystal Doyle:)
P.S. This isn't written in time, so you'll have to figure out the rhythm
yourself.                           Killing Me Softly

 (play part c)Then play part b (the chorus) again, and end it there.

Verse 2:
I felt all flushed with fever, embarassed by the crowd,
I felt he found my letters and read each one aloud.
I prayed that he would finish but he just kept right on.
 Verse 3: 
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.
But he was there this stranger singing clear strong.
