This song is in the Key of C Major and follows the normal C progressions.
My notation will be CAPS for MAJOR and lowercase for minor.
ex: C = C MAJOR
e = e minor
Intro: | C | a |
all but last verse (I'll include the first verse):
I heard there was a secret chord
That David played and it pleased the Lord
F G C
But you don't really care for music do ya?
C F G
It goes like this the fourth, the fifth,
The minor fall, the major lift,
G e C
The baffled king composing hallelujah
C a a C
C a C a G C
Hallelujah, Hallelu - oo -- jah
The rest follows that same pattern except at the very end where he repeats the Hallelujah lines twice.
Hope you enjoy this song too.
