Su- | [D] zanne takes you | down to her | place near the | river
You can | [Em] hear the boats go | by you can | spend the night be- | side her
And you | [D] know that she's half | crazy but that's | why you want to | be there
And she | [F#m] feeds you tea and | oranges that come | [G] all the way from | China
And just | [D] when you mean to | tell her that you | [Em] have no love to | give her
Then she | [D] gets you on her | wavelength and she | [Em] lets the river | answer
That you've | [D] always been her | lover | [D] | [D]

Chorus
And you | [F#m] want to travel | with her and you | [G] want to travel | blind
And you | [D] know that she will | trust you
For you've | [Em] touched her perfect | body with your | [D] mind | [D] | [D] | [D]

And | [D] Jesus was a | sailor when He | walked upon the | water
And He | [Em] spent a long time | watching from his | lonely wooden | tower
And | [D] when He knew for | certain only | drowning men could | see Him
He said | [F#m] all men will be | sailors then un- | [G] til the sea shall | free them
But | [D] He Himself was | broken long be- | [Em] fore the sky would | open
For- | [D] saken, almost | human, He | [Em] sank beneath your | wisdom
like a | [D] stone | [D] | [D] | [D]

Chorus
And you | [F#m] want to travel | with him and you | [G] want to travel | blind
And you | [D] think maybe you'll | trust him
For He's | [Em] touched your perfect | body with his | [D] mind | [D] | [D] | [D]

Now, Su- | [D] zanne takes your | hand and she | leads you to the | river
She is | [Em] wearing rags and | feathers from Sal- | vation Army | counters
And the | [D] sun pours down like | honey on our | lady of the | harbor
And she | [F#m] shows you where to | look among the | [G] garbage and the | flowers
There are | [D] heroes in the | seaweed there are | [Em] children in the | morning
They are | [D] leaning out for | love and they will | [Em] lean that way for- | ever
While Su- | [D] zanne holds the | mirror | [D] | [D]

Chorus
And you | [F#m] want to travel | with her and you | [G] want to travel | blind
And you | [D] know that you can | trust her
For she's | [Em] touched your perfect | body with her | [D] mind | [D] | [D] | [D↓]

Intro
| [D] | [F#m] | [D] | [F#m] |

| [D] Hey there Delilah, what's it | [F#m] like in New York City?
I'm a | [D] thousand miles away, but girl | [F#m] tonight you look so pretty
Yes you | [Bm] do ... | [G] Times Square can't [A] shine as bright as | [Bm] you
I swear it's | [A] true |

| [D] Hey there Delilah, don't you | [F#m] worry about the distance,
I'm right | [D] there if you get lonely, give this | [F#m] song another listen
Close your | [Bm] eyes ... | [G] listen to my [A] voice it's my | [Bm] disguise
I'm by your | [A] side |

Chorus
| [D] Oh it's what you do to | [Bm] me... |
| [D] Oh it's what you do to | [Bm] me... |
| [D] Oh it's what you do to | [Bm] me... |
| [D] Oh it's what you do to | [Bm] me, what you do to | [D] me |

| [D] Hey there Delilah, I know | [F#m] times are getting hard
But just | [D] believe me girl some day, I'll pay the | [F#m] bills with this guitar,
We'll have it | [Bm] good ... | [G] we'll have the [A] life we knew we | [Bm] would
My word is | [A] good |   

| [D] Hey there Delilah, I've got | [F#m] so much left to say
If every | [D] simple song I wrote to you, would | [F#m] take your breath away
I'd write it | [Bm] all ... | [G] even more in [A] love with me you'd | [Bm] fall
We'd have it | [A] all |

Chorus
| [D] Oh it's what you do to | [Bm] me... |
| [D] Oh it's what you do to | [Bm] me... |
| [D] Oh it's what you do to | [Bm] me... |
| [D] Oh it's what you do to | [Bm] me, what you do to | [D] me |

Bridge:
A | [G] thousand miles seems pretty far, but | [A] they've got planes and trains and cars
I'd | [D] walk to you if I had no other | [Bm] way...
Our | [G] friends would all make fun of us, and | [A] we'll just laugh along because
We | [D] know that none of them have felt this | [Bm] way...
| [G] Delilah I can promise you, that | [A] by the time that we get through
The | [Bm] world will never ever be the | [Bm] same... and you're to | [A] blame | [A] |   

| [D] Hey there Delilah you be | [F#m] good, and don't you miss me
Two more | [D] years and you'll be done with school, and | [F#m] I'll be making history
Like I | [Bm] do ... | [G] you'll know it's [A] all because of | [Bm] you
| [G] We can do [A] whatever we want | [Bm] to... |
| [G] Hey there [A] Delilah here's to | [Bm] you, this one's for | [A] you | [A] |

Chorus
| [D] Oh it's what you do to | [Bm] me... |
| [D] Oh it's what you do to | [Bm] me... |
| [D] Oh it's what you do to | [Bm] me... |
| [D] Oh it's what you do to | [Bm] me, what you do to | [D↓] me

I | [G] don't need to be for- | [B7] given

| [D]  [G]   | [A]   | [A]
| [D]  [G]   | [A]   | [A]
| [G]  [D]   | [Em] [D]
| [G]  [D]   | [Em] [A] | [A]...
| [D]  [G↓] [A↓] | [D] | [D]

Now the [D] night does funny [G] things inside a [A] man [A]
These old [D] tomcat feelings [G] you don't under- [A] stand [A]
I [G] turn around and [D] look at you, you [Em] light a cigar- [D] ette
I [G] wish I had the [D] guts to bum one, [Em] but we've never [A] met [A]
And I [D] hope that I don't [G↓] fall in [A↓] love with [D] you. [D]

Now it's [D] closing time, the [G] music's fading [A] out [A]
Last [D] call for drinks I'll [G] have another [A] stout [A]
I [G] turn around and [D] look at you, you're [Em] nowhere to be [D] found
I [G] search the place for [D] your lost face,
I [Em] guess I'll have another [A] round
And I [D] think that I just [G] fell in [A] love with [D] you [D]


#Play along with original in this key.
#Good fingerpicking song with plenty of suspended chord decoration opportunities (not in chart).

Love Letters In The Sand
Pat Boone (J. Fred Coots, 1931)


Intro (Whistle)
| [C] | [F] | [C] | [D7↓][G7↓]     |

On a | [C] day like to- | day
We | [F] pass the time a- | [D7] way  
Writing | [G7] love letters | [D7] in  [G7] the  
| [C] sand [D7] | [F] [G7]

How you | [C] laughed when I | cried
Each | [F] time I saw the | [D7] tide  
Take our | [G7] love letters | [D7] [G7] from the
| [C] sand [F] | [C]

You made a | [E7] vow that | you would | [Am] ever be | true
But some-   | [D7] how that | vow meant | [F] nothing to | [G7] you  

Now my | [C] broken heart | aches
With | [F] every wave that | [D7] breaks
Over | [G7] love letters | [D7] [G7] in the
| [C] sand [F] | [C↓]

Instrumental (Whistle)
| [E7] | [E7] | [Am] | [Am] |   
| [D7] | [D7] | [F]   | [G7] |

Now my | [C] broken heart | aches
With | [F] every wave that | [D7] breaks
Over | [G7] love letters | [D7] in [G7] the
| [C] sand [F] | [C↓] [G7↓][C↓]


#Capo on 3rd fret to play with Pat Boone's version.
