Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Hallelujah  Leonard Cohen



[C6]I heard there was a [Am]secret chord
[C6]that David played and it [Am]pleased the Lord,
But [F]you don't really c[G]are for music do[C] you.  [G]
[C]It goes like this the [F]fourth the [E]fifth,              Cale 1
the [Am]minor fall and the [F]major lift
The [G]baffled king [E]composing [E7]hallel[Am]ujah   [Am/G]
Halle[F]luja, Hall[Am]eluja, Halle[F]luja, Hallel[C6-G-C]uuuja
[C6]Your faith was strong but you [Am]needed proof
[C6]You saw her bathing [Am]on the roof
Her [F]beauty and the m[G]oonlight overt[C]hrew her  [G]         Cale 2
[C]She tied you to a [F]kitchen [E]chair
She [Am]broke your throne, and she [F]cut your hair
And [G]from your lips she [E]drew the [E7]Hallel[Am]ujah  [Am/G]
Halle[F]lujah, Hal[Am]lelujah, Hal[F]lelujah, Hal[C6-G-C]lelujah
[C6]You say I took the [Am]name in vain
[C6]I don't even [Am]know the name
But [F]if I did, well [G]really, what's it [C]to you?   [G]
There's a [C]blaze of light in [F]every [E]word
It [Am]doesn't matter [F]which you heard
The [G]holy or the [E]broken [E7]Hallel[Am]ujah  [Am/G]
Halle[F]lujah, Halle[Am]lujah, Halle[F]lujah, Halle[C6-G-C]lujah
[C6]Baby I've been [Am]here before.
[C6]I know this room I've [Am]walked this floor.
I [F]used to live al[G]one before I [C]knew you.  [G]
C F E Cale 3/Cohen 1
I've seen your flag on the marble arch
but [Am]love is not a [F]victory march
It's a [G]cold and it's a [E]broken [E7]Hallel[Am]ujah    [Am/G]
Halle[F]lujah, Halle[Am]lujah, Halle[F]lujah, Halle[C6-G-C]lujah

[C6]There was a time you [Am]let me know
[C6]whats really going [Am]on below
but [F]now you never [G]show it to me [C]do you? [G]
[C]I remember when I [F]moved in [E]you                       Cale 4/Cohen 2
and the [Am]holy dove was [F]moving too
and [G]every breath we[E] drew was [E7]Hallel[Am]ujah  [Am/G]
Halle[F]lujah, Halle[Am]lujah, Halle[F]lujah, Halle[C6-G-C]lujah

[C6]Now maybe there's a [Am]God above
[C6]but all I ever [Am]learned from love
is [F]how to shoot at [G]someone who out[C]drew you  [G]
C F E Cale 5/Cohen 3
And it's no complaint you hear tonight
and it's [Am]not some pilgrim who's [F]seen the light
it's a [G]cold and it's a [E]lonely [E7]Hallel[Am]ujah  [Am/G]
Halle[F]lujah, Halle[Am]lujah, Halle[F]lujah, Halle[C6-G-C]lujah

[C6]I did my best it [Am]wasn't much.
[C6]I couldn't feel so I [Am]learned to touch.
I've [F]told the truth, I [G]didn't come to [C]fool you.  [G]
And [C]even though it [F]all went [E]wrong,                   Cohen 4
I'll [Am]stand before the [F]Lord of Song
with [G]nothing on my [E]tongue but [E7]Hallel[Am]ujah  [Am/G]
Halle[F]lujah, Halle[Am]lujah, Halle[F]lujah, Halle[C6-G-C]lujah
