Here's a new question on a song that's been asked about before
The Wikipedia article
on this wondrous song quotes John Cale:
"After I saw [Cohen] perform at the Beacon I asked if I could have the lyrics to "Hallelujah". When I got home one night there were fax paper rolls everywhere because Leonard had insisted on supplying all 15 verses."
all 15 verses of the song? Even the many covers of the song
(blog post, not my blog) seem to adhere mostly to Cale's chosen verses.
Bonus points if there's some canonical order to them!
