Hallelujah  Leonard Cohen

[C]I heard there was a [Am]secret chord
That [C]David played and it [Am]pleased the Lord
But [F]you don't really care for music, [C]do ya?
[C]It goes like this the [F]fourth, the [G]fifth,
the [Am]minor fall and the [F]major [G]lift
The [G]baffled king composing halle[Am]lujah
Halle[F]lujah... Halle[Am]lujah... Halle[F]lujah... Halle[C]lu...o[G]oo...j[C]ah
You strum each of the first four strings of each chord in order, and back up again as the next chord change permits. So the first line would be like this:
   [C]            [Am]

The "E" chord diagram is shown but it doesn't appear in the song. No worries I've placed it but everyone seems to miss this chord out and misplace the one before. Cheers

"There's a chord missing. It should be:
F G C But you don't really care for music do ya"
Add a transitional G after line as well.

"ianmorjones says,
Another miassing chord - in the baffled king line there should be an E in between the G and the Am"

This is correct but try an E7! ...nice!

Your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew you
She tied you
To a kitchen chair
She broke your throne, and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah

Baby I have been here before
I know this room, I've walked this floor
I used to live alone before I knew you.
I've seen your flag on the marble arch
Love is not a victory march
It's a cold and it's a broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

There was a time you let me know
What's really going on below
But now you never show it to me, do you?
And remember when I moved in you
The holy dove was moving too
And every breath we drew was Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

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

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

I did my best, it wasn't much
I couldn't feel, so I tried to touch
I've told the truth, I didn't come to fool you
And even though
It all went wrong
I'll stand before the Lord of Song
With nothing on my tongue but Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah
