Verse:
     Ab                 Fm
I've heard there was a secret chord
     Ab                    Fm
That David played, and it pleased the Lord
    Db                Eb               Ab       Eb
But you don't really care for music, do you?

Pre-Chorus:
   Ab                   Db           G
It goes like this, the fourth, the fifth
    Fm              F
The minor fall, the major lift
    Eb               Cm          Fm
The baffled king composing Hallelujah

Chorus:
     Db           Fm
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
      Db          Ab-Eb-Ab-C
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Verse:
     Ab                        Fm
Your faith was strong but you needed proof
    Ab               Fm
You saw her bathing on the roof
    Db             Eb             Ab        G
Her beauty in the moonlight overthrew you

Pre-Chorus:
    Ab 
She tied you
     Db       G
To a kitchen chair
    Fm     
She broke your throne,
    F
she cut your hair
    Eb                  Cm            Fm
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah

Chorus:
     Db           Fm
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
      Db          Ab-Eb-Ab-C
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Verse 3:
    Ab              Fm
You say I took the name in vain
Ab            Fm
I don't even know the name
    Db              Eb                 Ab      Eb
But if I did, well really, what's it to ya?

Pre-Chorus:
          Ab                 Db     G
There's a blaze of light in every word
   Fm             F
It doesn't matter which you heard
    Eb           Cm          Fm
The holy or the broken Hallelujah

Chorus:
     Db           Fm
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
      Db          Ab-Eb-Ab-C
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
 
Verse 4:
  Ab               Fm
I did my best, it wasn't much
  Ab                   Fm
I couldn't feel, so I tried to touch
     Db                 Eb                    Ab   G
I've told the truth, I didn't come to fool ya

Pre-Chorus:
    Ab              Db        Eb
And even though it all went wrong
     Fm               F
I'll stand before the Lord of Song
     Eb             Cm              Fm
With nothing on my tongue but Hallelujah
 
Outro:
     Db           Fm          Db           Ab G
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah
     Db           Fm          Db           Ab G
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah
     Db           Fm          Db           Ab G
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah
     Db           Fm          Db           Ab Eb C
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Love this song. If you’re a beginner, this song actually sounds really good with just one strum for each chord!

IMO a C instead of the first Am sounds better in the prechorus. and an E7 also sounds great in the prechorus rather than the Em but both sound pretty good

+7 is the easiest if you have a high voice and it is not that hard.
