Hallelujah  Leonard Cohen

[G]I heard there was a [Em]secret chord

[G]that David played and it [Em]pleased the Lord,

But [C]you don't really [D]care for music [G]do you.

[G]It goes like this the [C]fourth the [D]fifth,

[Em]the minor fall and the [C]major [D]lift

[B7]The battle king composing hallel[Em]ujah

Halle[C]luja, Hall[Em]eluja, Halle[C]luja, Hal[G-D-G]leluja



Your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew ya
She tied you to a kitchen chair
She broke your throne, and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

You say I took the name in vain
I don't even know the name
But if I did, well really, what's it to ya?
There's a blaze of light in every word
It doesn't matter which you heard
The holy or the broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

I did my best, it wasn't much
I couldn't feel, so I tried to touch
I've told the truth, I didn't come to fool ya
And even though it all went wrong
I'll stand before the Lord of Song
With nothing on my tongue but Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah

(from Various Positions, 1984)

The baffled king, not The battle king. The man himself does this song in C.
