||  C                              C/B   Am                   |
Now I’ve heard there was a secret chord
|   C                    C/B   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               E      |
It goes like this the fourth the fifth
|    Am                              F                     |
the minor fall and the major lift
|     G                      E       |     Am                     ||
The baffled king composing hallelujah

 ||    F            |   Am           |  F           |   C       G   |   C     G       ||
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew ya
She tied you to a kitchen chair
She broke your throne, and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

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

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

I did my best, it wasn’t much
I couldn’t feel, so I tried to touch
I’ve told the truth, I didn’t come to fool ya
And even though it all went wrong
I’ll stand before the Lord of Song
With nothing on my tongue but Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah
