The chords I have found (I THINK), I'm not realy sure about that. This is what I have. I hope you can use it.

VERSE 1

Em
On the blind side and down the back ways

D
The roots of sadness crawl

Am
When you can't get what you need

Cm------------Bm
You feel like taking a torch to it all

Em
All the sweet talk makes a bitter man

D
You can feel the darkness rise

Am
Sometimes you don't know what you're fighting for

Cm------------Bm
You don't know who it is you despise

CHORUS

Em
I am the Halleluiah Man

Bm (D?)
Break all the rules I'm the King of fools

Am
I'm the renegade in this grey town

Cm--------------------Bm
And I'll do anything to bring a government down

Em
I am the Halleluiah Man

Bm (D?)
Yes my friends I've been born again

Am
I'm the black sheep who while shepherds sleep

Cm----------------Bm
Will do anything to bring a government down

VERSE 2

Em
In a coat of a thousand colours

D
and a star-spangled Cadillac

Am
He picked up a rodeo queen

Cm---------------------Bm
with whiplash marks all over his back

Em
When dreams don't become their people

D
People become their dreams

Am
He didn't understand at the time

Cm-------------------Bm
But now he knows exactly what it means

CHORUS

BRIDGE
They said watch out boy be careful where you tread
You're throwing away all that beautiful bread
He slept outside until the world opened up
They've got to understand he's a Halleluiah Man
He says I am the Halleluiah Man
And I'll do anything to bring a government down

VERSE 3
Em
He built himself a prison

D
He knew he had to escape

Am
Some worlds are held together by steel

Cm-------------------------------Bm
Some worlds are held together by sellotape

Em
He was drifting through the sharks teeth

D
He always paid his dues

Am
When something told him he had nothing

Cm---------------------Bm
That's when he knew he had nothing to lose

CHORUS

When dreams don't become their people
People become their dreams
