size
      G                
Now I heard there was a
  Em       
Secret cord
     G            
That David played,
        Em             
And it pleased the lord
    C                 D            
But you don't really care of music,
G       D
Do you?  
   G                  C      
It goes like this the fourth,
    D    
The fifth
     Em             C         
The minor fall, the major lift
    D              B7      
The baffled king composing,
     Em    
Hallelujah.

     C           Em         C     
Hallelujah,hallelujah, hallelujah,
     G  D G   D
Hallelu-u-jah. 

     G                
Your fifth was strong,
        Em           
But you needed proof.
    G               Em          
You saw her bathing on the roof.
    C              D        
Her beauty and the moonlight
    G        D
Overthrew ya. 
    G             C       D     
She tied you to a kitchen chair.
    Em                
She broke your throne,
        C             
And she cut your hair.
    D                  B7      
And from your lips she drew the
     Em    
Hallelujah.

Hallelujah...

    G               Em          
You say I took the name in vain.
G            Em            
I don't even know the name.
    C            D       
But if I did,well really,
          G     D
That's it to ya? 
          G             
There's a blaze of light
   C     D    
In every word.
   Em             C              
It doesn't matter which you herd.
    D           B7    
The holy or the broken
     Em    
Hallelujah.

Hallelujah...

  G              Em          
I did my best,it wasn't much.
  G                  Em            
I couldn't feel,so I tried to touch
     C                 D          
I've told the truth, I didn't come
          G  D
To  fool ya.  
    G              C        D     
And even though it all went wrong.
     Em               C            
I'll stand before the lord of song.
     D             B7        
With nothing on my tongue but
     Em    
Hallelujah.
     C           Em    
Hallelujah, hallelujah,
      C        G D       
Hallelujah, hallelujah.×3
     C           Em    
Hallelujah, hallelujah,
     C           G    D G 
Hallelujah, hallelu-u-jah.
