Standard Tuning

Intro: C Am C Am

C                 Am

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

 

Chorus:

 

F           Am          F           C    G   C

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelu-u-u-u-jah ….

C                        Am

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

She tied you to her kitchen chair

Am                        F

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

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelu-u-u-u-jah ….

 

C              Am

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

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelu-u-u-u-jah ….

 

C                         Am

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

 

C               Am

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

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   C

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelu-u-u-u-jah ….
