Jeff Buckley - Hallelujah

Vers 1

  C                              Am

I heard there was a secret chord

        C                                Am

That David played and it pleased the lord

       F                        G                         C           G

But you don't really care for music, do you?

            C                           F                 G

Well 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


Chorus

F                          Am           F                C     G     C

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelu-u-u-u-jah


Vers 2

                 C                                        Am

Well your faith was strong but you needed proof

        C                          Am

You saw her bathing on the roof

        F                        G                        C                G

Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew ya

C                               F           G

She tied you to her kitchen chair

        Am                                                F

And she broke your throne and she cut your hair

        G                             E                       Am

And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah


Chorus

F                          Am           F                 C    G    C

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelu-u-u-u-jah


Vers 3

C                                       Am

But baby I've been here before

C                                             Am

I've seen this room and I've walked this floor

                  F                                              C               G

You know, I used to live alone before I knew ya

C                                                 F            G

And I've seen your flag on the marble arch

        Am               F

And love is not a victory march

         G                      E                   Am

It's a cold and it's a broken Hallelujah


Chorus

F                         Am              F               C      G     C

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelu-u-u-u-jah


Vers 4

        C                                             Am

Well there was a time when you let me know

             C                  Am

What's really going on below

       F                        G                           C         G

But now you never show that to me do ya

       C                              F              G

But remember when I moved in you

              Am                    F

And the holy dove was moving too

        G                          E                       Am

And every breath we drew was Hallelujah


Chorus

F                         Am             F                 C       G    C

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelu-u-u-u-jah


Vers 5

C                                   Am

Maybe there's a God above

       C                         Am

But all I've ever learned from love

        F                      G                               C              G

Was how to shoot somebody who outdrew ya

              C                            F            G

And it's not a cry that you hear at night

      Am                              F

It's not somebody who's seen the light

        G                       E                   Am

It's a cold and it's a broken Hallelujah


Chorus

F                          Am              F               C      G     C

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelu-u-u-u-jah
