HALLELUJAH
Leonard Cohen


[Verse 1]
        
  C                 C/B    Am  
I 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 ya
     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

    
[Verse 2]

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


[Verse 3]

C         C/B  Am      
Maybe Ive been here before
  C              C/B Am
I know this room Ive walked this floor
  F              G            C       G 
I used to live alone before I knew you
    C                      F      E
Ive seen your flag on the marble arch
Am            F
Love is not a victory march
       G            E          Am
It’s a conan it’s a broken hallelujah
     F          Am        F              C G C  G
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

 
[Verse 4]     

      C         C/B  Am       
There was a time you let me know
      C          C/B Am
Whats real and going on below
    F             G              C      G 
But now you never show it to me do you?
     C             F        E
I remember when I moved in you
    Am            F
The holy dark was moving too
    G               E          Am
And every breath we drew was hallelujah
     F          Am        F              C G C  G
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah


[Verse 5]

C          C/B  Am    
Maybe there’s a better bow
     C     C/B  Am    
Then all I ever learned from love
    F               G               C      G 
Was how to shoot at someone while I drew you
    C                  F       E
Its not a cry you can hear at night
    Am                F
Its not somebody whos seen the light
       G            E         Am
It’s a conan it’s a broken hallelujah
     F          Am        F              C G C  G
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah
  
   
[Verse 6]

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


[Verse 7]
 
  C          C/B  Am   
I did my best, it wasn't much
  C              C/B  Am
I couldn't feel, so I tried to touch
     F                 G                   C  G 
I've told the truth, I didn't come to fool ya
    C               F       E 
And even though it all went wrong
     Am                F
I'll stand before the Lord of Song
     G             E             Am
With nothing on my tongue but Hallelujah

    
[Outro]

     F          Am           F                   C G 
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelu
     F          Am           F                   C G 
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelu
     F          Am           F                   C G 
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelu
     F          Am           F                   C G C
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

that's right but i think the lyrics are a bit wrong. it should be "cold and broken hallelujah" not "cohan" or w/e. no biggie... chords are right, nice job.
