Intro:
    C           Am          C           Am

Verse:
     C                 Am
I've 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?

Pre-Chorus:
   C                   F           G
It goes like this, the fourth, the fifth
    Am              F
The minor fall, the major lift
    G               Em          Am
The baffled king composing Hallelujah

Chorus:
     F           Am
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
      F          C-G-C-C
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Verse:
     C                        Am
Your faith was strong but you needed proof
    C               Am
You saw her bathing on the roof
    F             G             C        G
Her beauty in the moonlight overthrew you

Pre-Chorus:
    C 
She tied you
     F       G
To a kitchen chair
    Am     
She broke your throne,
    F
she cut your hair
    G                  Em            Am
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah

Chorus:
     F           Am
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
      F          C-G-C-C
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Verse:
    C              Am
But baby I've been here before
     C                    Am
I've seen this room, I've walked this floor
  F             G             C       G
I used to live alone before I knew you

Pre-Chorus:
     C                     F      G
I've seen your flag on the marble arch
Am             F
love is not a victory march
       G               Em          Am
It's a cold and it's a broken hallelujah

Chorus:
     F           Am
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
      F          C-G-C-C
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Verse:
      C                Am
There was a time you'd let me know
C                     Am
What's real and going on below
    F             G             C       G
But now you never show it to me do you?

Pre-Chorus:
   C            F        G
Remember when I moved in you?
    Am            F
The holy dark was moving too
    G               Em            Am
And every breath we drew was hallelujah

Chorus:
     F           Am
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
      F          C-G-C-C
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Verse:
C               Am
Maybe there's a God above
    C          Am
And all I ever learned from love
    F               G              C        G
Was how to shoot at someone who outdrew you

Pre-Chorus:
     C                 F       G
It's not a cry you can 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

Outro:
F Am
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
F C-G
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
F Am
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
F C-G-C
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

I keep the plucking pattern through the whole song. It’s a little tricky but I think it sounds best that way.
