Hallelujah

Intro: C C Am Am C C Am Am

C C Am Am
Well, 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
Well it goes like this
F F G G Am Am F F
The fourth, the fifth, the minor fall and the major lift
G G E7 E7 Am Am
The baffled king composing Hallelujah

F F Am Am F F C C G G C C
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelu-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 ya
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 E7 E7 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-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 ya
C C F F G G
And I've seen your flag on the marble arch
Am Am F F
And love is not a victory march
G G E7 E7 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-jah...

C C Am Am
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 ya?
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 E7 E7 Am Am
And every breath we drew was Hallelujah

F F Am Am F F C C G G C C
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelu-u-jah...

C C Am Am
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 ya
C C F F G G
And 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 E7 E7 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-jah...
F F Am Am F F C C G G C C
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelu-u-jah...
F F Am Am F F
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Am Am C C G G C C
Hallelujah, Hallelu-u-jah...
