Intro: C Em C Em

((Verse chords))

[C]Hey there Delilah,
What's it like[Em] in New York City?
I'm a th[C]ousand miles away,
But girl to[Em]night you look so pretty,
Yes you do[Am],
[F]Time Square can't sh[G]ine as bright as you,  [Am]
I swear it's true[G].

[C]Hey there Delilah,
Don't you wor[Em]ry about the distance,
I'm right th[C]ere if you get lonely,
Give this [Em]song another listen,
Close your [Am]eyes,
[F]Listen to my vo[G]ice it's my disg[Am]uise,
I'm by your s[G]ide.
((Chorus chords))
[C]Oh it's what you do to[Am] me,
Oh it's what you do to me,
Oh it's what you do to me,
Oh it's what you do to me,

[C]What you do to me.

**verse chords**
[C]Hey there Delilah,
I know ti[Em]mes are getting hard,
But just bel[C]ieve me girl some day,
I'll pay the b[Em]ills with this guitar,
We'll have it g[Am]ood,
[F]We'll have the [G]life we knew we wo[Am]uld,
My word is g[G]ood.

**verse chords**
[C]Hey there Delilah,
I've got s[Em]o much left to say,
If every si[C]mple song I wrote to you,
Would ta[Em]ke your breath away,

I'd write it a[Am]ll,
[F}Even moG]re in love with me you'd f[Am]all,
We'd have it a[G]ll.

**chorus chords**
[C]Oh it's what you do to[Am] me,
Oh it's what you do to me,
Oh it's what you do to me,
Oh it's what you do to me,

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

((extended verse:))
[C]Hey there Delilah you be good, And d[Em]on't you miss me,
Two more years [C]and you'd be done with school,
And I'll[Em] be making history,
Like I [Am]do,
[F]You'll know it's a[G]ll because of y[Am]ou,  
[Am]We can do whatever we want to,
[F]Hey there Delilah h[G]ere's to yo[Am]u,
[G]This one's for you.         [G]

**chorus till fade out**
Oh it's what you do to me,
Oh it's what you do to me,
Oh it's what you do to me,
Oh it's what you do to me,
What you do to me.

C Am....... C!

This is perfect - you just need to put a capo on second fret, then play exactly these chords and it'll be in the right key.
