[Introduction]
Em   G   Em   Bm D G  Bm D G

[Verse]
  G                 Em                 G                    Em
I heard there was a secret chord, that David played, and it pleased the Lord.
    C                D               G       Em
But you don't really care for music, do ya?
         G                   C           D          Em              C
Well, it goes like this, the fourth, the fifth, the minor fall, the major lift,
    D               Bm          Em      Em
The baffled king composing Hallelujah.

[Chorus]
     Em          G           Em          Bm D G  Em  G  Em
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah.

[Verse]
     G                        Em                G               Em
Your faith was strong but you needed proof, you saw her bathing on the roof,
    C             D             G           Em
Her beauty in the moonlight overthrew ya.’
          G             C       D          Em                     C
Well, she tied you to a kitchen chair, she broke your throne, and cut your hair,
    D                  Bm        Em      Em
And from your lips she drew Hallelujah.

[Chorus]
     Em          G           Em          Bm D G  Em  G  Em
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah.

[Verse]
G               Em                G                       Em
Baby, I’ve been here before, I’ve seen this room and I’ve walked the floor.
  C               D             G        Em
I used to live alone before I knew ya.'
         G                     C        D       Em            C
But I’ve seen your flag on the marble arch, our love is not a victory march,
       D               Bm          Em      Em
It's a cold and it’s a broken hallelujah.

[Chorus]
     Em          G           Em          Bm D G  Em  G  Em
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah.

[Verse]
      G                   Em                  G            Em
There was a time when you let me know, what’s really going on below.
    C             D              G        Em
But now you never show it to me, do ya'?
  G             C        D        Em            C
Remember when I moved in you, the holy dark was moving too,
    D               Bm         Em      Em
And every breath we drew, hallelujah!

[Chorus]
     Em          G           Em          Bm D G  Em  G  Em
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah.

[Verse]
G               Em             G             Em
Maybe there's a god above, but all I’ve ever learned from love,
   C                D           G        Em
Is how to shoot somebody who outdrew ya,
         G                  C       D           Em                C
But it's not a cry that you hear at night, it's not someone who’s seen the light,
       D        Bm          Em      Em
It's a cold and broken hallelujah.

[Chorus]
     Em          G           Em          Bm D G  Em  G  Em
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah.

[Outro]
