Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Hallelujah  Leonard Cohen



I [C]heard there was a [C/B]secret [Am]chord
that [C]David played and it [C/B]pleas[Am]ed 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 [C]faith was strong b[C/B]ut you [Am]needed proof
You s[C]aw her bat[C/B]hing [Am]on the roof
Her [F]beauty and the [G]moonlight overthrew [C]ya [G]
She t[C]ied you to a k[F]itchen c[E]hair
She b[Am]roke your throne, and she c[F]ut your hair
And [G]from your lips she [E]drew the Hal[Am]lelujah
Halle[F]lujah, Hall[Am]elujah, Hal[F]lelujah, Hallelu[C]ja[G]h [C]   [G]


[C]Maybe Ive [C/B]been [Am]here before
I [C]know this room [C/B]Ive [Am]walked this floor
I [F]used to live al[G]one before I [C]knew you[G]
Ive [C]seen your flag on the m[F]arble a[E]rch
[Am]Love is not a [F]victory march
It̵[G]7;s a conan i[E]t’s a[Am] broken hallelujah
Halle[F]lujah, Hall[Am]elujah, Hal[F]lelujah, Hallelu[C]ja[G]h [C]   [G]
There [C]was a time[C/B] you [Am]let me know
Whats [C]real and go[C/B]ing [Am]on below
But [F]now you never [G]show it to me d[C]o you? [G]
I rem[C]ember when I m[F]oved in y[E]ou
The [Am]holy dark was [F]moving too

And [G]every breath we [E]drew was ha[Am]llelujah
Halle[F]lujah, Hall[Am]elujah, Hal[F]lelujah, Hallelu[C]ja[G]h [C]   [G]

[C]Maybe there[C/B]̵[Am]7;s a better bow
Then [C]all I [C/B]ever [Am]learned from love
Was [F]how to shoot at [G]someone while I [C]drew yo[G]u
Its [C]not a cry you can h[F]ear at n[E]ight
Its [Am]not somebody whos [F]seen the light
It̵[G]7;s a conan i[E]t’s [Am]a broken hallelujah
Halle[F]lujah, Hall[Am]elujah, Hal[F]lelujah, Hallelu[C]ja[G]h [C]   [G]
You s[C]ay I took t[C/B]he n[Am]ame in vain
[C]I don't [C/B]even [Am]know the name
But [F]if I did, well [G]really, what's it to [C]ya?[G]
There's a [C]blaze of light in e[F]very w[E]ord
It [Am]doesn't matter w[F]hich you heard
The [G]holy or the [E]broken Hall[Am]elujah
Halle[F]lujah, Hall[Am]elujah, Hal[F]lelujah, Hallelu[C]ja[G]h [C]   [G]


I [C]did my best[C/B], it [Am]wasn't much
I [C]couldn't feel, [C/B]so I [Am]tried to touch
I've [F]told the truth, I [G]didn't come to fool [C]ya [G]
And [C]even though it a[F]ll went [E]wrong
I'll [Am]stand before the L[F]ord of Song
With [G]nothing on my [E]tongue but Hal[Am]lelujah
(Verses I found, not in the actual song from Shreck)

Halle[F]lujah, Hall[Am]elujah, Hallel[F]ujah, Hallelu[C]  [G]
Halle[F]lujah, Hall[Am]elujah, Hallel[F]ujah, Hallelu[C]  [G]
Halle[F]lujah, Hall[Am]elujah, Hallel[F]ujah, Hallelu[C]  [G]
Halle[F]lujah, Hall[Am]elujah, Hallel[F]ujah, Hallelu[C]ja[G]h [C]

CORRECTION:

If [C] is the key, then the IV (fourth) would be [F] and V (the fifth) would be [G] not [E] . So the 4th line would be:

"It [C] goes like this the [F] fourth the [G] fifth."

He tells you the chords right there in the lyrics!
Good job otherwise though, thanks!
