Hallelujah

Jeff Buckley

 CAmCAm
 CAm
Well I\'ve heard there was a secreat chord,
 CAm
That David played and it pleased the Lord,
 FGCG
But you don\'t really care for music, do ya?  
 CFG
It goes like this, the 4th, the 5th,
 AmF
The minor fall and the major lift,
 GE7Am
The baffled king composing hallelujah,
 FAmFCGC
                                                                                         
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelu------jah


 AmCAm
                                    
 CAm
Your faith was strong but you needed proof,
 CAm
You saw her bathing on the roof,
 FGCG
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew ya,   
 CFG
She tied yo to her kitchen chair,
 AmF
She broke your throne and she cut your hair,
 GE7Am
And from your lips she drew the hallelujah,
 FAmFCGC
                                                                                         
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelu------jah


 AmCAm
                                    
 CAm
Well baby I\'ve been here before,
 CAm
know this room and I\'ve walked this floor,
 FGCG
used to live alone before I knew ya.  
 CFG
And I\'ve seen your flag on the marble arch,
 AmF
And love is not a victory march,
 GE7Am
It\'s a cold and it\'s a broken hallelujah,
 FAmFCGC
                                                                                         
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelu------jah


 AmCAm
                                    
 CAm
There was a time when you let me know,
 CAm
What\'s really going on below,
 FGCG
But now you never show it to me do ya.  
 CFG
Well remember when I moved in you,
 AmF
And the holy dove was moving too,
 GE7Am
And every breath we drew was hallelujah,
 FAmFCGC
                                                                                         
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelu------jah


 AmCAm
                                    
 CAm
 Maybe there is a God above,
 CAm
But all I ever learned from love,
 FGCG
Was how to shoot at someone who outdrew ya. 
 CFG
And it\'s not a cry you can hear and night,
 AmF
It\'s not somebody who\'s seen the light,
 GE7Am
It\'s a cold and it\'s a broken hallelujah,
 FAmFCG
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelu-jah

 FAmFCGC
                                                                                         
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelu------jah
