      jah!

          G                 Em
Well I've heard there was a secreat chord,
     G                   Em
That David played and it pleased the Lord,
    C                         D      G       D
But you don't really care for music, do ya?
   G                   C        D
It goes like this, the 4th, the 5th,
    Em                 C
The minor fall and the major lift,
    D               B7          Em
The baffled king composing hallelujah,
     C           Em          C           G   D  
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelu------jah


[Instrumental]

G Em G Em


[Verse 2]

          G                 Em
Your faith was strong but you needed proof,
     G                   Em
You saw her bathing on the roof,
    C                         D      G       D
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew ya,
   G                   C        D
She tied yo to her kitchen chair,
   Em                 C
She broke your throne and she cut your hair,
   D                B7          Em
And from your lips she drew the hallelujah,
     C           Em          C           G   D  
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelu------jah


[Instrumental]

[Verse 3]

       G                 Em
Well baby I've been here before,
    G                   Em
I know this room and I've walked this floor,
    C                         D      G       D
I used to live alone before I knew ya.
       G                   C        D
And I've seen your flag on the marble arch,
    Em                 C
And love is not a victory march,
      D               B7          Em
It's a cold and it's a broken hallelujah,
     C           Em          C           G   D  
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelu------jah


[Instrumental]

G Em G Em


[Verse 4]

       G                 Em
There was a time when you let me know,
      G                   Em
What's really going on below,
    C                         D      G       D
But now you never show it to me do ya.
      G                   C        D
Well remember when I moved in you,
       Em                 C
And the holy dove was moving too,
    D               B7          Em
And every breath we drew was hallelujah,
     C           Em          C           G   D  
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelu------jah


[Instrumental]

G Em G Em


[Verse 5]

G                 Em
Maybe there is a God above,
     G                   Em
But all I ever learned from love,
    C                         D      G       D
Was how to shoot at someone who outdrew ya.
     G                   C        D
And it's not a cry you can hear and night,
      Em                 C
It's not somebody who's seen the light,
      D               B7          Em
It's a cold and it's a broken hallelujah,
     C           Em          C           G   D  
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelu-jah
     C           Em          C           G   D  
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelu------jah

These are the right chords but if u look at the way Jeff plays it on live in Chicago, he uses a capo on the fifth fret. So then u use the chords structures of G Em7 C D B7
to sound like C Am7 F G E7
Just to give it that real Jeff Buckley quality.
The intro goes sorta like this
e---0-0-0-----
-0-3-----3-0-0
----3-3-------THEN REPEAT THAT
-----------2-2
--------------
e-------------
Cadd 9/G
e----------------------3
---------0-0-----------3
-0--0----0-0-----------0
--2--2--2---2-2-2-2----2
---2--2-3---2-3-2-0----3
e----------------------3

Apart from that just pluck randomly and it'll sound impressive.
