Hallelujah  John Cale

I h[C]eard there was[C/B] a s[Am]ecret chord
that Da[C]vid played [C/B]and [Am]it pleased the Lord
But y[F]ou don't really c[G]are for music d[C]o [G]ya
It go[C]es like this the fo[F]urth the fi[E]fth
the mi[Am]nor fall and the ma[F]jor lift
The baff[G]led king comp[E]osing halle[Am]lujah
Halle[F]lujah, Hall[Am]elujah, Halle[F]lujah, Hallel[C]uj[G]ah  [C]  [G]

Her fa[C]ith was strong [C/B]but [Am]she needed proof
You s[C]aw her bath[C/B]ing [Am]on the roof
Her be[F]auty and the mo[G]onlight overt[C]hrew you  [G]
She ti[C]ed you to a ki[F]tchen ch[E]air
She b[Am]roke your throne and she [F]cut your hair
And f[G]rom your lips she d[E]rew the halle[Am]lujah
Hallel[F]ujah, Halle[Am]lujah, Halle[F]lujah, Hallel[C]uj[G]ah  [C]   [G]

[C]Maybe i've be[C/B]en h[Am]ere before
I kno[C]w this room, I[C/B]'ve [Am]walked this floor
I use[F]d to live al[G]one before I kn[C]ew you       [G]
I've s[C]een your flag on the ma[F]rble lo[E]dge
and l[Am]ove is not a vi[F]ctory march
It's ac[G]old and it's abr[E]oken hall[Am]elujah
Hallel[F]ujah, Halle[Am]lujah, Hallel[F]ujah, Hallel[C]uj[G]ah  [C]  [G]
There w[C]as a time, [C/B]you [Am]let me know
what's re[C]ally go[C/B]ing [Am]on below
But n[F]ow you never sh[G]owed it to me [C]do ya[G]
I rem[C]ember when I mo[F]ved in y[E]ou
and the h[Am]oly dove was mov[F]ing too
And e[G]very breath we d[E]rew was halle[Am]lujah
Halle[F]lujah, Halle[Am]lujah, Halle[F]lujah, Halle[C]lu[G]jah [C]  [G]
And m[C]aybe there's[C/B] a G[Am]od above
And a[C]ll I e[C/B]ver [Am]learned from love
is h[F]ow to shoot at s[G]omeone who outd[C]rew you    [G]
And it's n[C]ot the cry that you h[F]ear to[E]night
and it's n[Am]ot somebody who's s[F]een the light
It's ac[G]old and it's abr[E]oken halle[Am]lujah
Hallel[F]ujah, Halle[Am]lujah, Hallel[F]ujah, Halle[Am]lujah
Hallel[F]ujah, Halle[Am]lujah, Hallel[F]ujah, Halle[C]lu[G]jah [C]
