C C Am Am
I heard there was a secret chord
C C Am Am
That David played and it pleased the lord
F F G G C C G G
But you don't really care for music, do you?
C C F F G G
Well it goes like this the fourth, the fifth
Am Am F F
The minor fall and the major lift
G G Em Em Am Am
The baffled king composing hallelujah

Chorus:

F F Am Am F F C C G G C C
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelu-u-u-u-jah ....

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


F F Am Am F F C C G G C C
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelu-u-u-u-jah ....

C C Am Am
Baby I've been here before
C C Am Am
I've seen this room and I've walked this floor
F F G G C C G G
I used to live alone before I knew you
C C F F G G
I've seen your flag on the marble arch
Am Am F F
But love is not a victory march
G G Em Em Am Am
It's a cold and it's a broken hallelujah

F F Am Am F F C C G G C C
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelu-u-u-u-jah ....

C C Am Am
Well there was a time when you let me know
C C Am Am
What's really going on below
F F G G C C G G
But now you never show that to me do you
C C F F G G
But remember when I moved in you
Am Am F F
And the holy dove was moving too
G G Em Em Am Am
And every breath we drew was hallelujah

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

F F Am Am F F C C G G C C
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelu-u-u-u-jah ....

I'm using D-UD pattern.
I agree with other commenters that E7 sounds better than Em here.

It really does sound a whole lot better when you change the Em chord to E7, and much closer to the original song

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!
