Famously covered by the Fugees, everyone should recognise 'Killing me Softly' as it's been used in film and TV since it was written in the early 70's. It's a great song for beginners to practise, the letter notes below are good for flute, piano, oboe, clarinet, trumpet, guitar and more :) I've put a full stop before the low C's to help you spot them easier :)

 

^C   -  ^C     ^C    ^C      A      E     G  -  F
Strumming my pain with his fingers

B   -   B     B    B      G      D       E
Singing my life with his words

E  -  E     E     E-A    ^C     B      A
Killing me softly with his song

^D-^D  A  ^C-B     G      B     A
Killing me softly with his song

A  -  A     A      A        G       C     G       F
Telling my whole life with his words

F  -  F      F    E-D       D     D     E
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    ~
