I recorded Hallelujah on my "Dano Pro" tribute ukulele. I always loved the melody of this song, to be honest other then the chorus I don't know any of the lyrics. But I think it sounds nice on ukulele.

in Seattle [STRUM, Seattle's Totally-Relaxed Ukulele Musicians], we've pirated a parody of "Hallelujah", I believe from a New Zealand uke group, made a few adjustments and enjoy singing and playing it at our weekly song circles.

Please email me at ( rohiguchi@seattleschools.org ) for a pdf AND an MP3 of "Ukulele [Hallelujah]", you might enjoy it :)

keep uke'in',

PS I've written in an alternate wording for line 4 on the pdf as it might be uncomfortable for some of us, as written :) ["i'm going to Hell to play my ukulele" to 'I'd rather play my Heavenly ukulele' :)]

Here's our Hallelujah Ukulele version we've been singing for a few years.

HallaUkulele (KaraUkey C,Am,F,G,Em,G7)

[C] [Am] [C] [Am]
I [C] heard there was a [Am] secret chord,
I'm [C] pleased to say cause [Am] you looked bored.
With [F] me playing all the [G7] same music [C] to ya [G]
It [C] goes like this the [F] fourth, the [G7] fifth,
The [Am] minor fall the [F] major lift.
On [G7] this magic thing, they [Em] call a
Uku[Am]lele
Uku[F]lele
Uku[Am]lele
Uku[F]lele
Uku[C]le[G]ee[C]le [G] [Am]

You [C] thought I was wrong but you [Am] needed proof.
You [C] heard me playing [Am] on the roof,
And the [F] beauty of the [G7] music
Over [C] threw ya [G]
[C] You tried to say you [F] didn't [G7] care
But [Am] you really thought [F] it's just not fair
To [G7] get those sweet sounds [Em] from a
Uku[Am]lele
Uku[F]lele
Uku[Am]lele
Uku[F]lele
Uku[C]le[G]ee[C]le [G] [Am]

Well [C] I know that it is [Am] very small
But [C] I also know it can [Am] stand real tall
And [F] the time has come to [G7] really sock it [C] to ya [G]
There's no [C] need to cry, you'll [F] be all [G7] right
You [Am] are someone, who's [F] seen the light
It's a [G7] sweet and it's a [Em] pretty
Uku[Am]lele
Uku[F]lele
Uku[Am]lele
Uku[F]lele
Uku[C]le[G]ee[C]le[G] [Am]

I [C] see that uke in your [Am] embrace
I [C] can see the pleasure on [Am] your face
How the [F] beauty of the [G7] music over [C] came ya [G]
And [C] now you've joined the [F] happy [G7] throng
You [Am] help me now to [F] play this song
And [G7] from your case you [Em] drew a
Uku[Am]lele
Uku[F]lele
Uku[Am]lele
Uku[F]lele
Uku[C]le[G]ee[C]le [G] [Am]

And [C] now you know that [Am] secret chord,
I'm [C] pleased to say that we're [Am] in accord
And [F] I'm not just [G7] playing music [C] to ya [G]
It [C] goes like this the [F] fourth, the [G7] fifth,
The [Am] minor fall the [F] major lift.
And [G7] yes I'd say it's [Em] worth a
Halle[Am]lujah
Halle[F]lujah,
Halle[Am]lujah,
Halle[F]lujah,
Halle[C]luu[G]uu[C]jah [G] [C] [C]

It's such a simple song but I find it very satisfying to play.
