1st:
C chordC Am chordAm
I've 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

C chordC F chordF G chordG
It goes like this the fourth the fifth
Am chordAm F chordF
The minor fall the major lift
G chordG Em chordEm Am chordAm
The baffled King composing Hallelujah

F chordF Am chordAm
Hallelujah hallelujah

Hallelujah hallelujah

2nd:
Your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty in the moonlight overthrew you

She tied you to a kitchen chair
She broke your throne and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the hallelujah

Hallelujah hallelujah
Hallelujah hallelujah

3rd:
Maybe I've been here before
I know this room I've walked this floor
I used to live alone before I knew you

I've seen your flag on the marble arch
Love is not a victory march
It's a cold and it's a broken hallelujah

Hallelujah hallelujah
Hallelujah hallelujah

5th:
There was a time when you let me know
What's real and going on below
But now you never show it to me do you

And remember when I moved in you
The Holy Dark was moving too
And every breath we drew was hallelujah

Hallelujah hallelujah
Hallelujah hallelujah

6th:
Maybe there's a God above
And all I ever learned from love
Was how to shoot at someone who outdrew you

And it's not a cry you can hear at night
It's not somebody who's seen the light
It's a cold and it's a broken hallelujah
F chordF Am chordAm
Hallelujah hallelujah
F chordF C chordC-G chordG
Hallelujah hallelujah
F chordF Am chordAm
Hallelujah hallelujah
F chordF C chordC-G chordG-C chordC
Hallelujah hallelujah

Strum pattern that works well for me is:

I'm not sure if this should be Em or E7... both seem to sound right and the E7 is an easier shift. Thoughts?
