Hallelujah Chords/Lyrics/Verse

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

Hallelujah Chords/Lyrics/Chorus

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

Hallelujah Chords/Lyrics/Verse

           C                                        Am
Well your faith was strong 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

Hallelujah Chords/Lyrics/Chorus

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

Halleujah Chords/Lyrics/Verse

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

Hallelujah Chords/Lyrics/Chorus

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

Hallelujah Chords/Lyrics/Verse

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

Hallelujah Chords/Lyrics/Chorus

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

Hallelujah Chord/Lyrics/Verse

              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

Halleuljah Chord/Lyrics/Outro

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

Jeff Buckley

jeff buckleyJeffrey Scott Buckley (November 17, 1966 – May 29, 1997), raised as Scott Moorhead, was an American singer, songwriter and guitarist. After a decade as a session guitarist in Los Angeles, Buckley amassed a following in the early 1990s by playing cover songs at venues in Manhattan's East Village such as Sin-é, gradually focusing more on his own material. After rebuffing much interest from record labels and his father's manager, Herb Cohen, he signed with Columbia, recruited a band, and recorded what would be his only studio album, Grace, in 1994.

Over the following three years, the band toured extensively to promote the album, including concerts in the U.S., Europe, Japan, and Australia. In 1996, they stopped touring[4] and made sporadic attempts to record Buckley's second album in New York City with Tom Verlaine as producer.

In 1997, Buckley moved to Memphis, Tennessee, to resume work on the album, to be titled My Sweetheart the Drunk, recording many four-track demos while also playing weekly solo shows at a local venue. On May 29, 1997, while awaiting the arrival of his band from New York, he drowned during a spontaneous evening swim, fully clothed, in the Mississippi River when he was caught in the wake of a passing boat; his body was found on June 4.

Since his death, there have been many posthumous releases of his material, including a collection of four-track demos and studio recordings for his unfinished second album My Sweetheart the Drunk, expansions of Grace, and the Live at Sin-é EP. Chart success also came posthumously: with his cover of Leonard Cohen's song "Hallelujah" he attained his first number one on Billboard's Hot Digital Songs in March 2008 and reached number 2 in the UK Singles Chart that December. Buckley and his work remain popular and are regularly featured in "greatest" lists in the music press; in 2004, Rolling Stone listed him at number 39 on their list of greatest singers of all time.
