Verse:
     E                 Dbm
I've heard there was a secret chord
     E                    Dbm
That David played, and it pleased the Lord
    A                B               E       B
But you don't really care for music, do you?

Pre-Chorus:
   E                   A           B
It goes like this, the fourth, the fifth
    Dbm              A
The minor fall, the major lift
    B               Abm          Dbm
The baffled king composing Hallelujah

Chorus:
     A           Dbm
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
      A          E-B-E-E
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Verse:
     E                        Dbm
Your faith was strong but you needed proof
    E               Dbm
You saw her bathing on the roof
    A             B             E        B
Her beauty in the moonlight overthrew you

Pre-Chorus:
    E 
She tied you
     A       B
To a kitchen chair
    Dbm     
She broke your throne,
    A
she cut your hair
    B                  Abm            Dbm
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah

Chorus:
     A           Dbm
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
      A          E-B-E-E
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Verse:
E               Dbm
Maybe I've been here before
  E                    Dbm
I know this room, I've walked this floor
  A             B             E       B
I used to live alone before I knew you

Pre-Chorus:
     E                     A      B
I've seen your flag on the marble arch
Dbm             A
love is not a victory march
       B               Abm          Dbm
It's a cold and it's a broken hallelujah

Chorus:
     A           Dbm
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
      A          E-B-E-E
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Verse:
      E                Dbm
There was a time you'd let me know
E                     Dbm
What's real and going on below
    A             B             E       B
But now you never show it to me do you?

Pre-Chorus:
   E            A        B
Remember when I moved in you?
    Dbm            A
The holy dark was moving too
    B               Abm            Dbm
And every breath we drew was hallelujah

Chorus:
     A           Dbm
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
      A          E-B-E-E
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Verse:
E               Dbm
Maybe there's a God above
    E          Dbm
And all I ever learned from love
    A               B              E        B
Was how to shoot at someone who outdrew you

Pre-Chorus:
     E                 A       B
It's not a cry you can hear at night
     Dbm                 A
It's not somebody who's seen the light
       B               Abm          Dbm
It's a cold and it's a broken hallelujah

Outro:
A Dbm
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
A E-B
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
A Dbm
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
A E-B-E
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

  1. Once there was a tennis game
    Boo laced his shoes; and bowser came
    But you don’t really care for tennis, do you?
    It goes like this, a game set match and on his hat he wore his patch; inverted L his name was Waluigi
    Waluigi
    Waluigi
    Waluigi
    Waluiiiiiiiiiiiiiiigiiiiiii

    • It’s a pain, but that Em at the baffled king line is an E major–that gets you the G# note that makes the V of Am. Thank you for all of the beautiful work on this site!!

  11. I made my own cool strumming pattern to go with this song its, DD UUUU.
    It sound goof if you dont like it you can pluck or use, DD UDU!
