Jeff Buckley – Hallelujah Chords

Lyrics and chords:

[Intro]

C Am C Am

[Verse 1]

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 E7 Am
The baffled king composing hallelujah

[Chorus]

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

[Verse 2]

C Am
Well your faith was h3 but you needed proof
C Am
You saw her bathing on the roof
F G C G
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew you
C F G
She tied you to her kitchen chair
Am F
She broke your throne and she cut your hair
G E7 Am
And from your lips she drew the hallelujah

[Chorus]

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

[Verse 3]

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 E7 Am
It’s a cold and it’s a broken hallelujah

[Chorus]

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

[Verse 4]

C Am
Well there was a time when you let me know
C Am
What’s really going on below
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 E7 Am
And every breath we drew was hallelujah

[Verse 5]

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 E7 Am
It’s a cold and it’s a broken hallelujah

[Outro]

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