    Default Hallelujah

    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.
