[Verse 1]

            C             Em                  F

I took the supermarket flowers from the windowsill

            C         Em             F

I threw the day old tea from the cup

Am                G          F       Dm7      C

   Packed up the photo album Matthew had made

    F           G                    C

Memories of a life that’s been loved

            C            Em              F

Took the get well soon cards and stuffed animals

           C            Em               F

Poured the old ginger beer down the sink

Am            G                 F        Dm7         C

   Dad always told me don’t you cry when you’re down

                  F          G                 C

But mum there’s a tear every time that I blink

[Pre-Chorus 1]

Dm            F             C         G

   Oh I’m in pieces it’s tearing me up but I know

Dm                F            C                     G

   A heart that’s broke is a heart that’s been loved

[Chorus 1]

             C          Em   F

So I’ll sing Hallelujah

            G            C               Em   F

You were an angel in the shape of my mum

            G

When I fell down you’d be there

Am            F              C            G

Holding me up, spread your wings as you go

          Am                F            C         G           

And when God takes you back, you’ll say Hallelujah, you’re home

                 C               Em                     F

I fluffed the pillows, made the beds, stacked the chairs up

            C            Em             F

Folded your nightgowns neatly in a case

G Am                G                  F                C

     John said he’d drive then put his hand on my cheek

            F              G          C

And wiped a tear from the side of my face

[Pre-Chorus 2]

Dm                 F          C              G

   And I hope that I see the world as you did cause I know

Dm             F           C                    G

   A life with love is a life that’s been lived

[Chorus 2]

             C          Em   F

So I’ll sing Hallelujah

            G            C               Em   F

You were an angel in the shape of my mum

            G

When I fell down you’d be there

Am            F              C            G

Holding me up, spread your wings as you go

          Am                F            C         G           

And when God takes you back, you’ll say Hallelujah, you’re home

Am               F             C         G            C

God took you back, he said say Hallelujah, you’re home
