Hallelujah  John Cale

Capo 1
Intro: G Em G Em
I [G]heard there was[Em] a s[G]ecret chord
that D[G]avid played and[Em] it pleased the Lord
But y[C]ou don't really c[D]are for music d[G]o ya
It go[G]es like this the fo[C]urth the fi[D]fth
the mi[Em]nor fall and the ma[C]jor lift
The baff[D]led king comp[B]osing halle[Em]lujah
Halle[C]lujah, Hall[Em]elujah, Halle[C]lujah, Hallel[G]uj[D]ah[G] [Em] [G] [Em]
Her fa[G]ith was strong but [Em]she needed proof
You s[G]aw her bathing [Em]on the roof
Her be[C]auty and the mo[D]onlight overt[G]hrew you
She ti[G]ed you to a ki[C]tchen ch[D]air
She b[Em]roke your throne and she [C]cut your hair
And f[D]rom your lips she d[B]rew the halle[Em]lujah
Hallel[C]ujah, Halle[Em]lujah, Halle[C]lujah, Hallel[G]uj[D]ah[G] [Em] [G] [Em]
[G]Maybe i've been he[Em]re before
I kno[G]w this room, I've [Em]walked this floor
I use[C]d to live al[D]one before I kn[G]ew you
I've s[G]een your flag on the ma[C]rble lo[D]dge
and l[Em]ove is not a vi[C]ctory march
It's ac[D]old and it's abr[B]oken hall[Em]elujah
Hallel[C]ujah, Halle[Em]lujah, Hallel[C]ujah, Hallel[G]uj[D]ah[G] [Em] [G] [Em]
There w[G]as a time, you [Em]let me know
what's re[G]ally going [Em]on below
But n[C]ow you never sh[D]owed it to me [G]do ya
I rem[G]ember when I mo[C]ved in y[D]ou
and the h[Em]oly dove was [C]moving too
And e[D]very breath we d[B]rew was halle[Em]lujah
Halle[C]lujah, Halle[Em]lujah, Halle[C]lujah, Halle[G]lu[D]jah[G] [Em] [G] [Em]
And m[G]aybe there's a [Em]God above
And a[G]ll I ever [Em]learned from love
is h[C]ow to shoot at s[D]omeone who outd[G]rew you
And it's n[G]ot the cry that you h[C]ear to[D]night
and it's n[Em]ot somebody who's s[C]een the light
It's ac[D]old and it's abr[B]oken halle[Em]lujah
Hallel[C]ujah, Halle[Em]lujah, Hallel[E]ujah, Halle[Em]lujah
Hallel[C]ujah, Halle[Em]lujah, Hallel[E]ujah, Halle[G]lu[D]jah[G] [Em] [G] [Em]
