Rufus Wainwright - Hallelujah Chords

C                      Am        
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/G#        Am         
The baffled king composing Hallelujah.        
 
F           Am        
Hallelujah, Hallelujah        
F            C   G   C  G      
Hallelujah, Hallelujah        
 
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 you        
    C                   | F       G  |      
She tied you to a kitchen chair,           
     Am                        F        
She broke your throne, she cut your hair,        
    G            E/G#       Am         
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah.        
 
F           Am        
Hallelujah, Hallelujah        
F            C   G   C   G     
Hallelujah, Hallelujah        
 
C            Am         
Maybe I have been here before,        
  C                    Am        
I know this room, 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        
Love is not a victory march,        
     G            E/G#           Am         
It's a cold and it's a broken Hallelujah.        
 
F           Am        
Hallelujah, Hallelujah        
F            C   G   C  G     
Hallelujah, Hallelujah        
 
C                     Am        
There was a time you let me know        
       C              Am         
What's real and going on below,       
    F             G              C       G     
But now you never show it to me, do you?        
    C             | F        G |        
And remember when I moved in you?        
    Am            F        
The holy dove was moving too,        
     G            E/G#           Am         
And every breath we drew was Hallelujah.        
 
F           Am        
Hallelujah, Hallelujah        
F            Am   G   C  G     
Hallelujah, Hallelujah        
 
C               Am        
Maybe there's a god above        
C               Am        
But all I ever learned from love        
    F               G               C        G     
Was how to shoot at someone who outdrew you,        
         C                | F      G |        
And it's not a cry you can hear at night,        
     Am                 F         
It's not somebody who's seen the light        
     G            E/G#           Am         
It's cold and it's a broken Hallelujah.       
 
 
F           Am        
Hallelujah, Hallelujah        
F            Am   G           
Hallelujah, Hallelujah        
F           Am         
Hallelujah Hallelujah         
F            C   G   C   G      
Hallelujah Hallelujah
