Once you get the pattern down you can just use this lead sheet.
(The /B is just the second string second fret part of the pattern above, I left them out
the later verses because you should have the idea by then).

C Am7 C Am7

    /B C              /B Am7           /B
Well I heard there was a secret chord
C                /B Am7
David played and it pleased the lord
/B  F                G              C       Am7
But you don't really care for music, do ya?
    /B C               /B  F           G
And it goes like this, the fourth, the fifth
Am                    F      G
The minor fall and the major lift
    Am              E            Am
The baffled king composin' "Hallelujah"

     C  G  C     Am7 C Am7
Hallelu-   jah

     /B   C                     /B Am7          /B
Well your faith was strong but you needed proof
C            /B Am7
Saw her bathing on the roof
/B  F             G         C       /B Am7
Her beauty in the moonlight overthrew ya
    /B  C          /B F       G
And she tied you to a kitchen chair
Am                   F         G
Broke your throne and cut your hair
    Am                 E           Am
And from your lips she drew "Hallelujah"

     C  G  C     Am7 C Am7
Hallelu-   jah

     C              Am7
Well baby I've been here before
C                     Am7
I know this room and I walked this floor
            F             G            C       Am7
You know, I used to live alone before I knew ya
         C                     F      G
And I've seen your flag on the marble arch
Am7               F       G
But love is not a victory march
       Am              E             Am
It's a cold and it's a broken "Hallelujah"

Well Hallelujah
     C  G  F
Hallelu-   jah
Oh it's just hallelujah
               Am     F   G
It's just hallelujah

C               Am7
Maybe there's a God above
C              Am7
But all I ever learned from love
    F                G           C        Am7
Was how to shoot somebody who out drew ya
         C                  F       G
And it's not a cry that you hear at night
     Am                 F        G
It's not somebody who's seen the light
       Am                  E            Am
It's a cold and it's a broken "Hallelujah"

Well hallelujah
     C   G
Hallelu- u-  jah

There you have it. Just listen for changes in strumming/picking between verses, they're
based of the main pattern. I think that in this recording he probably only plays E
and not E major/G# as I have noted above, which is more like the original. Here's the 
Cohen chord progression, which Street To Nowhere altered only slightly:

I vi I vi
I IV, V vi IV
V III7/bVI (or V6/5 of vi) vi vi
IV vi IV I, V I V
(according to Wikipedia.com)
