Delilah

Tom Jones

 AmE7
 I saw the light on the night that I passed by her window
 AmE7
 I saw the flickering shadows of love on her blind
 AA7Dm
 She was my woman
 AmE7AmG7
 As she deceived me I watched, and went out of my mind  
 CG
 My, my, my, Delilah
 GBC
 Why, why, why, Delilah
 CC7FDm
 I could see that girl was no good for me
 CGCE7
 But I was lost like a slave that no one could free 
 AmE7
 At break of day when that man drove away I was waiting
 AmE7
 I crossed the street to her house and she opened the door
 AA7Dm
 She stood there laughing
 AmE7AmG7
 I felt the knife in my hand, and she laughed no more   
 CG
 My, my, my, Delilah
 GBC
 Why, why, why, Delilah
 CC7FDm
 So before they come to break down the door
 CGCE7
 Forgive me, Delilah, I just couldn't take any more   
 AmE7
                                      
 AA7Dm
 She stood there laughing
 AmE7AmG7
 I felt the knife in my hand, and she laughed no more   
 CG
 My, my, my, Delilah
 GBC
 Why, why, why, Delilah
 CC7FDm
 So before they come to break down the door
 CGCE7
 Forgive me, Delilah, I just couldn't take any more                                         
 AmE7AmDmAm
  Forgive me, Delilah, I just couldn't take any  mo--oo--ore
