: Hallelujah

1. C 
heard there was a 
Am 
secret chord

That C 
David played and it 
Am 
pleased the lord

But F 
you don't really 
G 
care for music, 
C 
do you?  
G 
 

Well it C 
goes like this the 
F 
fourth, the 
G 
fifth

The Am 
minor fall and the 
F 
major lift

The G 
baffled king 
Em 
composing halle
Am 
lujah


R: HalleF 
lujah, halle
Am 
lujah, halle
F 
lujah, halle
C 
lu-u-
G 
u-u-
C 
jah…1. 


2. Your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew ya
She tied you to a kitchen chair
She broke your throne, she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah

R: Hallelujah, Hallelujah …

3. You say I took the name in vain, 
I don't even know the name 
but if I did, well really, what's it to ya? 
There's a blaze of light in every word, 
it doesn't matter which you heard, 
the holy or the broken Hallelujah. 

R: Hallelujah, Hallelujah …

4. Maybe I've been here before
I seen 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
R: Hallelujah, Hallelujah …

5. There was a time you'd let me know
What's real and going on below
But now you never show it to me do you?
Remember when I moved in you?
The holy dark was moving too
And every breath we drew was hallelujah

R: Hallelujah, Hallelujah …

6. Maybe there's a God above
But all I've ever learned from love
Was how to shoot somebody who outdrew you
It's not a cry, that you hear at night
It's not somebody who's seen the light
It's a cold and it's a broken hallelujah

R: Hallelujah, Hallelujah …

7. I did my best, it wasn't much, 
I couldn't feel, so I tried to touch, 
I've told the truth, I didn't come to fool ya. 
And even though it all went wrong, 
I'll stand before the Lord of Song 
with nothing on my tongue but Hallelujah 

R: Hallelujah, Hallelujah …
