Delilah  Bumblefoot

Here's a basic outline (chords, riffs, lyrics) for the godly song
we know as Delilah. I started a full powertab thing, with bass, piano,
vocal line, etc. but I am simply too lazy to finish it.
The song is in 6/4 with a triplet feel.
1. [Am]Lady D[Am/G]elilah - she [D7/F#]enslaves me[D/F#]
[F]I'm bound and [Ab]chained by her [Eb]lies [Db] Lie[G]s
[Cm]One look in her [Cm/Bb]eyes and she [F/A]breaks me
And I [Ab]fall down like [G]rain
As the [Ab]wind sings her [G]name
Chorus:
[Dm]Ohhhhh[G]ohhhhhh [Em]Ohhhhh[A]ohhhhh
[F#m]Ohhh De[B]lilah [Em]Ohhhhh[A]ohhhh
[D]I was the [C]strongest man [B]alive
A# E A Bb/A (below x2)
Till you came along - my Delilah
 
 E|-----5-5----5-5-|---6-6-x--------|

 G|-----6-6----6-6-|---7-7-x--------|
 D|----------------|----------------|
 A|--0-------0-----|-0--------------|
 E|----------------|---------0-3-6--|

2. She deceived me but believe me it was alright
To touch her lips was to kiss the blades of her knives
Why do things we know are wrong feel so right?
Worth a lifetime of pain
For one night to sing her name
Oh, Delilah‚?¶
I was the strongest man alive
Till you came along - my Delilah
SOLO: (too lazy to figure it out note-for-note... improvise :))

Well I'll [Ab]never be the [G]same
Cause that[Ab] girl - yeah, she's to [G]blame
How could [Ab]I love a[G]gain
Since she [Ab]took my heart [G]away.
(see below for this next part)
And then someone said her name
And I tore at my flesh to dull the pain of the sound
And ripped from the chains and the walls came down
And I lay covered and bound
And I called out her n[E]ame‚?¶
