     baffled king  composing       Hallelujah


 From here I play the rest of the song with chords. Softly at first, then slowly 
building. The Chorus I usually play very softly.

Chorus:

       C
  Hallelujah

       Em
  Hallelujah

       C
  Hallelujah

       G         D
  Hallelu.... uuuu......

  G     Em    G    Em
  jah

The next verse is an example. Hallelujah is commonly rearranged by the player, so you 
may play whichever of the many verses that you chose, with a soft chorus in between.

       G                        Em
  Your faith was strong but you needed proof, you

       G                        Em
       saw...her bathing.....   on the roof, her

       C                        C
       beauty..          in the moonlight... over-

       G                        D
       through you                            She

       G                C       D
       tied you to... a kitchen chair...     she

       Em                        C
       broke your throne and she cut your hair, and

       D                         Bm
       from your lips...     she drew the Halle-
