hallelujah chords

Thank you so much for this as I have been wanting to play this for ages! I was just wondering the lyrics in his song are different to the ones here and I thought maybe it was just the one that I have but it’s off his real album so I’m a bit confused.
Musically, Cohen’s early songs are based in folk music, in terms of both melody and instrumentation; from the 1970s, though, his work begins to show the influence of various types of popular and cabaret music.

hi brett after the fabulous strumming lessons and lots of practise of my favourite songs from there, i’m ready for fingerpicking! i’ve done the blues lessons which were great and i love this song, especially leonard’s version actually (and now yours which nearly made me cry…).
i love this song soooo much, and i just bought a baritone ukulele yesterday(i play guitar as well) and i’ve playin it none stop.
a couple of questions….. is it worth it on a soprano uke with high G tuning? do you play the 3 finger C variation all the way through or only in the intro? are there parts where the whole picking pattern is not run through before changing chords (so you change chords partway through, i think there’s one from F to G like that?)? i haven’t been on the site for a while and it’s very re-inspiring to come back and learn some new things from you.
I’ve been learning this song on my baritone ukulele and I really like your note you throw in between chords, but I can’t figure out what it would be on the baritone.
I’m just a beginner but I’m learning so much and you taught this song so well I can actually play it! I do have a quick question.

 I have been trying to learn this song for over 2 years on and off but I always got frustrated because without a thumb on my left hand I have a very difficult time with barr chords and this is perfect for me.
Thank you very much for the lesson and chords for this song!  Working on it now with strumming and with an arpeggio pattern.
Jeff Buckley’s guitar tone on “Hallelujah” was captured with three key pieces of equipment: A 1983 Fender Telecaster, a 1963 Reissue Fender Vibroverb, and an Alesis Quadraverb.
 I am getting the strumming down and would love to see the finger picking pattern you use so I could practice this as well.

  Info.

Generally, they’re written somewhat poorly, so it’s good to have some idea of where the chord changes are in the song, as the chords may be out of sync with the lyrics.
One thing he does a few times in the song (and loads of times in his own songs) is play the F chord with the G string open, then hammer on at the second fret.
I’ve included two versions of Am in the song (one with the A string open and one with it at the third fret).

  Info.

This song originally released in 1984 on Leonard Cohen‘s album “Various Positions”.
Jeff Buckley recorded one of the best-known versions of “Hallelujah” for his album “Grace” in 1994.
The rendition of John Cale ( former Velvet Underground member ) was used for the score of “Shrek”.
