According to me…..


This is Hallelujah by Leonard Cohen – it’s not the part I am learning – I do the picking part…but it’s too hard to post it here. 🙂

I don’t think I’ve even tried just strumming along…doesn’t seem a strumming song to me..but here it is…’cause it’s my favorite to play and one I’ve been working on since I got my guitar.  🙂

Standard Tuning

Intro: C Am C Am

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            Em             Am
The baffled king composing hallelujah

Chorus:

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

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                  Em            Am
And from your lips she drew the hallelujah

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

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               Em          Am
It’s a cold and it’s a broken hallelujah

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

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               Em            Am
And every breath we drew was hallelujah

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               Em          Am
It’s a cold and it’s a broken hallelujah

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

And here is the part I’m trying to learn…lol

You need a capo on the 5th fret and everything is written relative to the capo.
