Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Hey There Delilah  Plain White T's

[D]Hey there Delilah,  What’s[Bm] it like in New York City?
[D]I’m a thousand miles away,  Bu[Bm]t girl tonight you look so pretty,
Yes you do[G],  Time Square [A]can’t shine as bright a[Bm]s you,  I swear [A]it’s true.
[D]Hey there Delilah,  Don’t [Bm]you worry about the distance,
[D]I’m right there if you get lonely[Bm],  Give this song another listen,
Close your eye[G]s,  Listen to my vo[A]ice it’s my disgu[Bm]ise, I’m by your s[A]ide.
[D]Oh it’s what you do to m[Bm]e,  Oh i[D]t’s what you do to [Bm]me,
Oh it’s what you do to me, Oh it’s what you do to me, What you do to me.

[D]Hey there Delilah,  I know[Bm] times are getting hard,
[D]But just believe me girl some day,  I'll pay the bills wi[Bm]th this guitar,
We'll have it good,  We'll have the li[G]fe we knew [A]we would, My wo[Bm]rd is good.     [A]
[D]Hey there Delilah,  I’ve g[Bm]ot so much left to say,
[D]If every simple song I wrote to you, Wou[Bm]ld take your breath away,
I’d write it all,  Even more [G]in love with[A] me you’d fall,  We’d have i[Bm]t all.           [A]


[G]A thousand miles seems pretty far, But they[A]’ve got planes, trains and cars,
[D]I’d walk to you if I had no other [Bm]way.
[G]Our friends would all make fun of us,  And we'll [A]just laugh along because,
[D]We know that none of them have felt this w[Bm]ay,
[G]Delilah I can promise you, That by the t[A]ime that we get through,
[D]The world will never ever be the s[Bm]ame ..... And you’re to bl[A]ame!

[D]Hey there Delilah you be g[Bm]ood,  And don’t you miss me,
Two more ye[D]ars and you’ll be done with school,  And I'll be mak[Bm]ing history,
Like I do[G], You’ll know it's [A]all because of[Bm] you,
[G]We can do wh[A]atever we want t[Bm]o
[G]Hey there Deli[A]lah here's to y[Bm]ou, This one’s for yo[A]u.

CHORUS (again)
