Leonard Cohen

6:8 Key:C

Intro first two lines:
[C] [Am]
[C] [Am]
Well I've [C]heard there was a [Am]secret chord,
That [C]David played and it [Am]pleased the Lord,
But [F]you don't really [G]care for music, [C]do [G]ya?
It [C]goes like this, the [F]4th, the [G]5th,
the [Am]minor fall and the [F]major lift,
The [G]baffled king com- [E7]posing halle- [Am]lujah,

Halle- [F]lujah, halle- [Am]lujah,
Halle- [F]lujah, halle [C]lu --- [G]jah [C]

Your [C]faith was strong but you [Am]needed proof,
You [C]saw her bathing [Am]on the roof,
Her [F]beauty and the [G]moonlight over- [C]threw [G]ya,
She [C]tied you to her [F]kitchen [G]chair,
She [Am]broke your throne and she [F]cut your hair,
And [G]from your lips she [E7]drew the halle- [Am] lujah,

Halle - [F]lujah, halle- [Am]lujah,
Halle - [F]lujah, halle [C]lu --- [G]jah [C]

[C]Baby I've been [Am]here before
I've [C]seen this room and I've [Am]walked this floor
I [F]used to live [G]alone before I [C]knew you[G]
[C]I've seen your flag on the [F]marble [G]arch
But [Am]love is not a victory [F]march
It's a [G]cold and it's a [E7]broken halle- [Am] lujah

Halle- [F]lujah, halle- [Am]lujah,
Halle- [F]lujah, halle [C]lu --- [G]jah [C]

Well there [C] was a time when you [Am] let me know,
What's [C] really going [Am] on below,
But [F]now you [G]never show it to me [C]do [G] ya.
Well re-[C]member when I moved [F]in with [G] you,
And the [Am] holy dove was [F]moving too,
And [G] every breath we [E7] drew was halle- [Am] lujah

Halle - [F]lujah, halle- [Am]lujah,
Halle - [F]lujah, halle [C]lu --- [G]jah [C]

May [C]be there is a [Am]God above,
But [C]all I ever [Am]learned from love,
Was [F]how to shoot at [G]someone who out- [C]drew [G]ya.
And it's [C]not a cry you can [F]hear at [G]night,
It's not [Am]somebody who's [F]seen the light,
It's a [G]cold and it's a [E7]broken halle- [Am]lujah,

Halle - [F]lujah, halle- [Am]lujah,

Halle - [F]lujah, halle [C]lu --- [G]jah [C]
