Hallelujah  Leonard Cohen

from; Various Positions, 1984 (also includes verses from later versions)
(In 6/8 time)
Well I've [C]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 [G]music [C]do you. [G]
. . .
It [C]goes like this the [F]fourth the [G]fifth,
The [Am]minor fall and the [F]major lift
[G]The baffled king com[E7]posing hallelu[Am]jah
Halle[F]lujah, Hal[Am]lelujah, Halle[F]lujah, Halle[C]lu - -[G] - -[C]jah
Your [C]faith was strong but you [Am]needed proof
You [C]saw her bathing [Am]on the roof
Her [F]beauty and the moonlight [G]over[C]threw ya  [G]
. . .
She [C]tied you to a [F]kitchen [G]chair
She [Am]broke your throne, and she [F]cut your hair
And [G]from your lips she [E7]drew the Halle[Am]lujah
Halle[F]lujah, Hal[Am]lelujah, Halle[F]lujah, Halle[C]lu - -[G] - -[C]jah
You [C]say I took the [Am]name in vain
[C]I don't even [Am]know the name
But [F]if I did, well really, [G]what's it [C]to ya?
. . .
There's a [C]blaze of light in [F]every [G]word
It [Am]doesn't matter [F]which you heard
The [G]holy or the [E7]broken Halle[Am]lujah
Halle[F]lujah, Hal[Am]lelujah, Halle[F]lujah, Halle[C]lu - -[G] - -[C]jah
Well [C]baby I've been [Am]here before,
I [C]know this room and I've [Am]walked this floor,
I [F]used to live alone be[G]fore I [C]knew ya.  [G]
. . .
Yeah I've [C]seen your flag on the [F]marble [G]arch,
But listen, [Am]love's not some kind of [F]victory march,
No it's a [G]cold and it's a very [E7]broken Halle[Am]lujah.
Halle[F]lujah, Hal[Am]lelujah, Halle[F]lujah, Halle[C]lu - -[G] - -[C]jah
There [C]was a time you [Am]let me know,
What's [C]really going [Am]on below,
Ah but [F]now you never show it [G]to me, [C]do you?  [G]
. . .
Yeah but [C]I remember, yeah when I [F]moved in [G]you,
And the [Am]holy dove, she was [F]moving too,
Yes every [G]single breath that we [E7]drew was Halle[Am]lujah.
Halle[F]lujah, Hal[Am]lelujah, Halle[F]lujah, Halle[C]lu - -[G] - -[C]jah
Well [C]maybe there's a [Am]God above,
As for [C]me, all I've ever seemed to [Am]learn from love,
Is [F]how to shoot at someone [G]who out[C]drew you.  [G]
. . .
But it's [C]not a complaint that you [F]hear to[G]night,
It's not the [Am]laughter of someone who claims to have [F]seen the light,
No, it's a [G]cold and it's a very [E7]lonely Halle[Am]lujah.
Halle[F]lujah, Hal[Am]lelujah, Halle[F]lujah, Halle[C]lu - -[G] - -[C]jah
I [C]did my best, but it [Am]wasn't much
I [C]couldn't feel, so I [Am]tried to touch
I've [F]told the truth, I didn't come [G]all this way to [C]fool ya  [G]
. . .
And [C]even though it [F]all went [G]wrong
I'll [Am]stand before the [F]Lord of Song
With [G]nothing on my [E7]tongue but Halle[Am]lujah
Halle[F]lujah, Hal[Am]lelujah, Halle[F]lujah, Halle[C]lu - -[G] - -[C]jah
