Hallelujah

Rufus Wainwright

 FDm
I've heard there was a secret chord
 FDm
That David played and it pleased the Lord
 BCFC
But you don't really care for music do you?  

 FBC
It goes like this, the fourth, the fifth
 DmB
The minor fall, the major lift
 CAmDm
The baffled King composing Hallelujah

 BDm
Hallelujah, hallelujah
 BF-C-F
Hallelujah, hallelujah

2nd:
Your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty in 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

Hallelujah, hallelujah
Hallelujah, hallelujah

3rd:
Maybe I've 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

5th:
There was a time when you let me know
What's real and going on below
But now you never show it to me, do you?

And remember when I moved in you
The Holy Dark was moving too
And every breath we drew was hallelujah

Hallelujah, hallelujah
Hallelujah, hallelujah

6th:
Maybe there's a God above
And all I ever learned from love
Was how to shoot at someone who outdrew you

And it's not a cry you can hear at night
It's not somebody who's seen the light
It's a cold and it's a broken hallelujah

Hallelujah, hallelujah
Hallelujah, hallelujah
Hallelujah, hallelujah
Hallelujah, hallelujah

LancerRock25 (report comment to admin):
when played in the key of c, I believe the F should be natural and not #
davegetchell (report comment to admin):
In key of F the chord Bb should be used where B is indicated. This error is transposed through all keys
