[VERSE 1]
          C                   Am
Now I've heard there was a secret chord
       C                       Am
That David played, and it pleased the Lord
        F             G                  C G
But you don't really care for music, do you?

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

      F        Am
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
     F         C    G  C  G
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
 
[VERSE 2]
       C                       Am
Your faith was strong but you needed proof
      C             Am
You saw her bathing on the roof
    F                  G            C     G
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew you

     C               F     G
She tied you to a kitchen chair
      Am                       F
She broke your throne and she cut your hair
    G                      E7         Am
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah

[VERSE 3]

Baby I have 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


[CHORUS]
      F        Am
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
     F         C    G  C  G
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
 
[VERSE 4]

There was a time you let me know

What's really going on below

But now you never show it to me, do you?

And remember when I moved in you

The holy dove was moving too

And every breath we drew was Hallelujah
 
[CHORUS]
      F        Am
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
     F         C    G  C  G
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
 
[VERSE 5]
       C            Am
You say I took the name in vain
C             Am
I don't even know the name
     F                G              C      G
But if I did, well really, what's it to you?

           C                F        G
There's a blaze of light in every word
    Am              F
It doesn't matter which you heard
     G            E7         Am
The holy or the broken Hallelujah
 
 
[CHORUS]
      F        Am
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
     F         C    G  C  G
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

[VERSE 7]
 C              Am
I did my best, it wasn't much
  C                      Am
I couldn't feel, so I tried to touch
      F                 G                   C  G
I've told the truth, I didn't come to fool you

     C             F           G
And even though it all went wrong
      Am               F       
I'll stand before the Lord of Song
      G              E7              Am
With nothing on my tongue but Hallelujah

[CHORUS]
      F        Am
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
     F         C    G  C  G
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

      F        Am
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
     F         C    G  C  G
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
