Hallelujah

	  		G                   Em     
I heard there was a secret chord    
G                        Em   
that David played and it pleased the Lord,   
    C  2x            (D)               G     (D)   
But you don't really care for music do you.   
G                     C         D        
It goes like this the fourth the fifth,                 
    Em                C     D       
the minor fall and the major lift   
     D            Bm            Em   
The baffled king composing hallelujah   
     C         Em          C        G-D-G   
Halleluja, Halleluja, Halleluja, Halleluja   
   
G                             Em   
Your faith was strong but you needed proof   
G                   Em   
You saw her bathing on the roof   
    C                            G   
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew YOU              
G                C       D        
She tied you to a kitchen chair   
    Em                         C        D         
She broke your throne, and she cut your hair   
     D                  Bm           Em   
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah   
     C         Em            C         G-D-G    
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah   
   
G                  Em   
You say I took the name in vain   
G            Em   
I don't even know the name   
    C                                G   
But if I did, well really, what's it to you?   
G                        C        D       
There's a blaze of light in every word   
   Em             C         D         
It doesn't matter which you heard                       
     D          Bm          Em   
The holy or the broken Hallelujah   
     C         Em            C          G-D-G    
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah   
   
G                 Em   
Baby I've beeen here before.    
G                     Em   
I know this room I've walked this floor.   
  C                           G   
I used to live alone before I knew you.   
G                          C      D                     
I've seen your flag on the marble arch   
    Em            C       D   
but love is not a victory march    
        D                 Bm       Em   
It's a cold and it's a broken Hallelujah   
     C         Em            C         G-D-G    
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah   
   
G                    Em   
There was a time you let me know   
G                  Em   
whats really going on below   
    C                           G   
but now you never show it to me do you?   
G                 C        D   
I remember when I moved in you                          
        Em            C      D   
and the holy dove was moving too   
     D               Bm           Em   
and every breath we drew was Hallelujah   
     C         Em            C         G-D-G    
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah   
   
G                   Em   
Now maybe there's a god above   
G              Em   
but all I ever learned from love    
   C                              G   
is how to shoot at someone who outdrew you   
G                         C      D                      
And it's no complaint you hear tonight    
         Em                     C        D   
and it's not some pilgrim who's seen the light   
        D               Bm         Em   
it's a cold and it's a lonely Hallelujah   
     C         Em            C         G-D-G    
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah   
   
G                Em   
I did my best it wasn't much.   
G                    Em   
I couldn't feel so I learned to touch.   
     C                                G   
I've told the truth, I didn't come to fool you.   
G                  C        D   
And even though it all went wrong,                      
     Em               C       D   
I'll stand before the Lord of Song    
     D              Bm             Em   
with nothing on my tongue but Hallelujah   
     C         Em            C         G-D-G    
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah
