Intro: | D | F#m | (2 times)

D                             F#m
 Hey there Delilah, what's it like in New York City?
      D                               F#m                                Bm
I'm a thousand miles away but girl, tonight you look so pretty, yes, you do
G                   A                  Bm                A
 Times Square can't shine as bright as you, I swear it's true
D                             F#m
 Hey there Delilah, don't you worry about the distance
          D                                  F#m                             Bm
I'm right there if you get lonely, give this song another listen, close your eyes
G             A                 Bm                 A
 Listen to my voice, it's my disguise, I'm by your side

D                       Bm
Oh, it's what you do to me
D                       Bm
Oh, it's what you do to me
D                       Bm
Oh, it's what you do to me
D                       Bm                 D
Oh, it's what you do to me, what you do to me

D                          F#m
 Hey there Delilah, I know times are getting hard
           D                                    F#m                                   Bm
But just believe me, girl, someday I'll pay the bills with this guitar, we'll have it good
G               A               Bm                A
 We'll have the life we knew we would, my word is good
D                            F#m
 Hey there Delilah, I've got so much left to say
         D                                F#m                                 Bm
If every simple song I wrote to you would take your breath away, I'd write it all
G             A                   Bm                 A
 Even more in love with me, you'd fall, we'd have it all

D                       Bm
Oh, it's what you do to me
D                       Bm
Oh, it's what you do to me
D                       Bm
Oh, it's what you do to me
D                       Bm
Oh, it's what you do to me

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

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

D                       Bm
Oh, it's what you do to me
D                       Bm
Oh, it's what you do to me
D                       Bm
Oh, it's what you do to me
D                       Bm                 D      Bm     D      Bm     D      Bm     D      Bm     D
Oh, it's what you do to me, what you do to me, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh
