Leonard Cohen - Hallelujah Chords

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