C chordC Am chordAm
I heard there was a secret chord
C chordC Am chordAm
That David played and it pleased the lord
F chordF G chordG C chordC G chordG
But you don't really care for music do you

Well it goes like this the fourth the fifth

The minor fall and the major lift
G chordG Em chordEm Am chordAm
The baffled king composing hallelujah

Chorus:

F chordF Am chordAm F chordF C chordC G chordG C chordC
Hallelujah hallelujah hallelujah hallelu-u-u-u-jah

C chordC Am chordAm
Well your faith was strong but you needed proof
C chordC Am chordAm
You saw her bathing on the roof
F chordF G chordG C chordC G chordG
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew you
C chordC F chordF G chordG
She tied you to her kitchen chair
Am chordAm F chordF
She broke your throne and she cut your hair
G chordG Em chordEm Am chordAm
And from your lips she drew the hallelujah

Baby I've been here before

I've seen this room and I've walked this floor
F chordF G chordG C chordC G chordG
I used to live alone before I knew you
C chordC F chordF G chordG
I've seen your flag on the marble arch
Am chordAm F chordF
But love is not a victory march

It's a cold and it's a broken hallelujah

Well there was a time when you let me know
C chordC Am chordAm
What's really going on below

But remember when I moved in you
Am chordAm F chordF
And the holy dove was moving too
G chordG Em chordEm Am chordAm
And every breath we drew was hallelujah

C chordC Am chordAm
Well maybe there's a god above
C chordC Am chordAm
But all I've ever learned from love
F chordF G chordG C chordC G chordG
Was how to shoot somebody who outdrew you
C chordC F chordF G chordG
It's not a cry that you hear at night
Am chordAm F chordF
It's not somebody who's seen the light
G chordG Em chordEm Am chordAm
It's a cold and it's a broken hallelujah

F chordF Am chordAm F chordF C chordC G chordG C chordC
Hallelujah hallelujah hallelujah hallelu-u-u-u-jah

This is the first song I've learned to play on my ukulele. I tried out another version of this song, but it didn't sound right; it was too simple. This version follows the melody of the original work better. Thanks so much!
