* Chord Chart to Hallelujah- Jeff Buckley

Intro: [C] [Am] [C] [Am]

[C] [Am]
I heard there was a secret chord
[C] [Am]
That David played and it pleased the lord
[F] [G] [C] [G]
But you don't really care for music, do you?
[C] [F] [G]
Well it goes like this the fourth, the fifth
[Am] [F]
The minor fall and the major lift
[G] [Em] [Am]
The baffled king composing hallelujah

Chorus:

[F] [Am] [F] [C] [G] [C]
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelu-u-u-u-jah ....

[C] [Am]
[C] [Am]
You saw her bathing on the roof
[F] [G] [C] [G]
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew you
She tied you to her kitchen chair
[Am] [F]
She broke your throne and she cut your hair
[G] [Em] [Am]
And from your lips she drew the hallelujah

N|
[F] [Am] [F] [C] [G] [C]
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelu-u-u-u-jah ....

[C] [Am]
Baby I've been here before
[C] [Am]
I've seen this room and I've walked this floor
[F] [G] [C] [G]
I used to live alone before I knew you
[C] [F] [G]
I've seen your flag on the marble arch
[Am] [F]
But love is not a victory march
[G] [Em] [Am]
It's a cold and it's a broken hallelujah

[F] [Am] [F] [C] [G] [C]
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelu-u-u-u-jah ....

[C] [Am]
Well there was a time when you let me know
[C] [Am]
[F] [G] [C] [G]
But now you never show that to me do you
[C] [F] [G]
But remember when I moved in you
[Am] [F]
And the holy dove was moving too
[G] [Em] [Am]
And every breath we drew was hallelujah
[C] [Am]
Well, maybe there's a god above
[C] [Am]
But all I've ever learned from love
[F] [G] [C] [G]
Was how to shoot somebody who outdrew you
[C] [F] [G]
It's not a cry that you hear at night
[Am] [F]
It's not somebody who's seen the light
[G] [Em] [Am]
It's a cold and it's a broken hallelujah

[F] [Am] [F] [C] [G] [C]
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelu-u-u-u-jah ....
