baffled king composing Hallelujah
From here I play the rest of the song with chords. Softly at first, then slowly
building. The Chorus I usually play very softly.
Chorus:
Halle[C]lujah
Halle[Em]lujah
Halle[C]lujah
Halle[G]lu.... uuu[D]u......
[G]jah[Em] [G] [Em]
The next verse is an example. Hallelujah is commonly rearranged by the player, so you
may play whichever of the many verses that you chose, with a soft chorus in between.
Your [G]faith was strong but you [Em]needed proof, you
[G]saw...her bathing..... [Em]on the roof, her
[C]beauty.. in the [C]moonlight... over-
[G]through you [D] She
[G]tied you to... a [C]kitchen [D]chair... she
[Em]broke your throne and she [C]cut your hair, and
[D]from your lips... she [Bm]drew the Halle-
[Em]lujah
