[Intro]

C  G
 

[Verse]

      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                E           Am
The baffled king composing, Hallelujah.


[Chorus]

     F           Am          F
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah,
     C  G C     G
Hallelu - jah.


[Verse]

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


[Chorus]

     F           Am          F
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah,
     C  G C     G
Hallelu - jah.


[Verse]

    C              Am
You say I took the name in vain,
       C            Am
Though I don't even know the name,
    F              G                 C    G
But if I did, well really, what's it to ya?
          C                 F     G
There's a blaze of light in every word,
   Am             F
It doesn't matter which you heard:
    G           E           Am
The holy or the broken Hallelujah.


[Chorus]

     F           Am          F
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah,
     C  G C     G
Hallelu - jah.


[Verse]

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


[Chorus]

     F           Am          F
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah,
     C  G C     G
Hallelu - jah.
