Hallelujah  Leonard Cohen

[G]I heard there was a [Em]secret chord

[G]that David played and it [Em]pleased the Lord,

But [C]you don't really care for music [G]do you.

[G]It goes like this the [C]fourth the [D]fifth,

[Em]the minor fall and the [C]major [D]lift

[D]The baffled king composing halle[Em]lujah

Halle[C]luja, Hall[Em]eluja, Halle[C]luja, Hal[G-D-G]leluja


Easy.

[C]   [G]                                 [C]Now I       C           [C/B]   C[Am]/B  Am
that David played and it pleased the Lord
But [F]you don't really c[G]are for music do [C]ya [G]
It go[C]es like this the four[F]th the fifth  [E]
the m[Am]inor fall and the maj[F]or lift
The baf[G]fled king comp[E]osing hallel[Am]ujah
Halle[F]lujah, Hall[Am]elujah, Hal[F]lelujah, Hallelu[C]ja[G]h [C]   [G]


Your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew ya
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

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 ya?
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 ya
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

I like to put a C diminished on the word "care" in the third line.
