Hallelujah Chords

   
Rufus Wainwright's version of this song is in the key of C, but Brandi plays it in G
and tweaks the verse and chorus just a bit. This is not on her album, but she plays
it live at some shows.

Guitarists should toy around to see which D chord works best for the song.
I'm using something close to Dsus on my banjo.



intro:
 |G  Em|G  Em|

1st:
     G                 Em 
Iíve heard that thereís a secret chord
     G                   Em
That David played and it pleased the Lord
    C                C             G        G
But you donít really care for music do you?

   G                   C           D
It goes like this, the fourth, the fifth
    Em              C
The minor fall, the major lifts
    D                 Am        Em
And the baffled King composing Hallelujah

     G   C	C   G
Hallelujah, hallelujah
     G    C      C-G-D-G
Hallelujah, hallelujah

2nd:
Well your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty in the moonlight overthrew you
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/b/brandi_carlile/hallelujah_crd.html ]
She tied you to her kitchen chair
She broke your throne, and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the hallelujah

Hallelujah, hallelujah
Hallelujah, hallelujah

3rd:
Darling Iíve been here before
Iíve seen this room, Iíve walked these floors
You know I used to live alone before I knew you

Iíve seen your flag on the marble arch
Love is not a victory march
Itís a cold and itís a broken hallelujah

Hallelujah, hallelujah
Hallelujah, hallelujah, Oh yeaÖ

5th:
There was a time when you let me know
Whatís really going on below
But now you never show it to me, do you?

And remember when I moved in you
The Holy Dark was moving too
And every breath you drew was hallelujah

Hallelujah, hallelujah
Hallelujah, hallelujah

6th:
So maybe thereís a God above
But all I ever learned from love
Was how to shoot at someone who outdrew you

Itís not a cry you can hear at night
Itís not somebody whoís seen the light
Itís a cold and itís a broken hallelujah
  
G   C 	    C   G
Hallelujah, hallelujah
     G    C      C-G-D-G
Hallelujah, hallelujah 

G   C	           C   G
Hallelujah, hallelujah
     G    C      C-G-D-G
Hallelujah, hallelujah
