Standard tuning (EADGBE)
Capo on the 1st fret

G                   Em
I heard there was a secret chord
G                          Em
That David played, and it pleased the Lord
C/G                  D               G       D
But you don't really care for music, do ya?
G                      C/G         D
It goes like this, the fourth, the fifth
    Em              C/G
The minor fall, the major lift
    D               B7          Em
The baffled king composing Hallelujah
G    C/G     D-Dsus4-D

    G                         Em
Your faith was strong but you needed proof
G                     Em
 You saw her bathing on the roof
    C/G            D             G         D
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew ya
    G                    C/G       D
She broke your crown and cut your hair
    Em              C/G
She tied you to her kitchen chair
    D                  B7            Em
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah
G    C/G         Em
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
     C/G         G    D   G  Gmaj7
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

    Em               Bm
You say I took the name in vain
     C/G          G
Well I don't even know the name
    D              B7                Em
And if I did, well really, what's it to ya?
     D         G                 C/G   D
'cuz there's a blaze of light in every word
   Em              C/G
It does not matter which you heard
    D           B7          Em
The holy or the broken Hallelujah
G    C/G   D

  G               Em
I did my best, it wasn't much
  G                    Em
I could not feel, so I tried to touch
     C/G                  D            G        D
I've told the truth, I did not come to fool ya
    G              C/G      D
And even though it all went wrong
     Em               C/G
I'll stand before the Lord of Song
     D             B7              Em
With nothing on my tongue but Hallelujah
  G   C/G        Em
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
     C/G         G
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
     C/G         Em   G   C/G
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
     D     G     C  G

That B7 in, "You say I took the name in vain..." is actually a Bm. My bad! Not a big difference, though.
