Capo 1
Intro: G Em G Em
  G              Em  G
I heard there was a secret chord
      G              Em
that David played and it pleased the Lord 
     C                D              G
But you don't really care for music do ya 
     G                  C          D 
It goes like this the fourth the fifth 
      Em                 C 
the minor fall and the major lift 
        D            B          Em 
The baffled king composing hallelujah 
     C          Em           C            G D   G Em G Em
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

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

G                 Em
Maybe i've been here before
     G                 Em 
I know this room, I've walked this floor
     C           D              G             
I used to live alone before I knew you
      G                      C      D 
I've seen your flag on the marble lodge
     Em             C 
and love is not a victory march
       D               B        Em 
It's acold and it's abroken hallelujah
      C          Em           C           G D   G Em G Em 
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

       G              Em
There was a time, you let me know
         G          Em 
what's really going on below 
     C              D             G   
But now you never showed it to me do ya
     G              C       D
I remember when I moved in you
         Em           C
and the holy dove was moving too

     D               B            Em 
And every breath we drew was hallelujah
     C           Em          C           G D   G Em G Em 
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

     G              Em
And maybe there's a God above  
     G         Em 
And all I ever learned from love
    C               D              G          
is how to shoot at someone who outdrew you
          G                    C     D 
And it's not the cry that you hear tonight 
          Em                 C 
and it's not somebody who's seen the light
       D               B         Em 
It's acold and it's abroken hallelujah
      C          Em           E          Em    
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah
      C          Em           E          G D   G Em G Em  
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah
