                             HALLELUJAH - Alicia Keys
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by:ndermawan
Tuning: Standard

NO CAPO

Reference (LIVE SNL PERFORMANCE): 
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eZ0A0Tb9-J0


Epic live performance from Alicia Keys! So glad she is back and releasing new music

The bass player also kills it in this performance, very walking(?) bass-heavy track
in some parts - I don't play the bass so it's a bit hard for me 
to get all the correct bass notes to tab


NOTE:
Please also correct me if the chords I am using for flats/sharps are wrong or out of key,
I'm decent at figuring out what's being played but my music theory is pretty garbage.

[Verse 1]
(0:08 - 0:37)

          Cm         Gm              Fm
There's a hole in my heart I've been hiding
          Cm         Gm              Fm
I've been strong for so long that I'm blind
          Cm           Ab6          D#           Fm
Is there a place I can go where the lonely river flows?
          Cm        G7      Cm
Where fear ends and faith begins


[Chorus]
(0:38 - 1:09)

I've been praying but I'm paying for my sins
          G#        Ab6     Cm  Cm7    G#
Won't you give me a sign before I  lose my mind?

Woah, hallelujah, let me in


[Verse 2]
(1:10 - 1:39)

      Cm            Gm             Fm
Every step makes me think that I'm closer
        Cm        Gm         Fm
But somehow I just haven't arrived
         Cm        Ab6              D#              Fm
When our hope disappears, please protect me from my fears
  Cm             G7    Cm
I need you right by my side


[Chorus]
(1:40 - 2:10)

     G#          Fm            Cm   Cm7
Hallelujah, hallelujah, let me in

I've been praying but I'm paying for my sins
          G#        Ab6     Cm  Cm7     G#
Won't you give me a sign before I  lose my mind?

Woah, hallelujah, let me in

Woah, woah, hallelujah

(2:26 - 2:40)
          G#        Ab6
All the places I've been
           Cm      Cm7     G#
Please forgive me for my sins
G#         G7            Cm
Woah, hallelujah, let me in

For those who are having trouble with the AB6 on their Spanish acoustic guitar: G7 works also fine instead ^^

Fixed all the wrong lyrics (hopefully)!

In the album version she says 'tears' but in the SNL version she says 'fears' so I let that be for this particular tab :) thanks for the heads up.
