Hallelujah    (video)

 

                  C                        Am

1. Well, I 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

    Well, it goes like this the fourth, the fifth,

            Am                        F

    the minor fall and the major lift,

            G                      Em             Am

    the baffled king composing hallelujah.

             F              Am             F                C - G  C     - Am - C - Am

    Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelu……..jah.

 

                      C                                    Am

2. Well, 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

    As he tied you to her kitchen chair,

                  Am                                     F

    as she broke your throne and she cut your hair,

             G                          Em               Am

    and from your lips she drew the hallelujah

             F              Am             F                C - G  C   - Am - C - Am

    Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelu……..jah.

 

      C                      Am

3. Baby, I've been here before.

              C                                 Am

    I've seen this room and I've walked this floor.

    F                                  G         C            - G

    I used to live alone before I knew you.

             C                                 F       G

    I've seen your flag on the marble arch,

          Am                F

    but love is not a victory march

              G                    Em            Am

    it's a cold and it's a broken hallelujah.

             F              Am             F                C - G  C   -Am -C -Am -F -C -G

    Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelu……..jah.

 

 

 

 

                         C                            Am

4. Well, there was a time when you let me know,

                 C              Am

    what's really going on below,

            F                                     G         C            - G

    but now you never show that to me, do you ?

                 C                       F           G

    But remember when I moved in you,

                 Am                     F

    and the holy dove was moving, too,

             G                        Em               Am

    and every breath we drew was hallelujah.

             F              Am             F                C - G  C      - Am - C - Am

    Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelu……..jah.

 

                C                     Am

5. Well, maybe there's a god above,

          C                 Am

    but all I've ever learned from love,

              F                                    G           C           - G

    was how to shoot somebody who outdrew you.

                  C                            F        G

    And it's not a cry that you hear at night,

          Am                              F

    it's not somebody who's seen the light,

              G                   Em             Am

    it's a cold and it's a broken hallelujah.

             F              Am             F                C - G 

    Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelu…….. 

             F              Am             F                C - G 

    Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelu……..    (….)
