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
