TITLE: Hey There, Delilah
Lyrics and Chords

Hey there, Delilah, what's it like in New York City
I'm a thousand miles away, but girl tonight you look so pretty
Yes you do, Times Square can't shine as bright as you
I swear it's true

/ D - F#m - / / Bm - G A Bm - / A - /

Hey there, Delilah, don't you worry about the distance
I'm right there if you get lonely, give this song another listen
Close your eyes, listen to my voice, it's my disguise
I'm by your side

Oh it's what you do to me (4x)

/ D - Bm - / / / /

What you do to me

/ D - F#m - /

Hey there, Delilah, I know times are getting hard
But just believe me girl some day, I'll pay the bills with this guitar
We'll have it good, we'll have the life we knew we would
My word is good

Hey there, Delilah, I've got so much left to say
If every simple song I wrote to you would take your breath away
I'd write it all, even more in love with me you'd fall
We'd have it all


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

/ G - / A - / D - Bm - / : / G - A - / Bm - - - / A - /

Hey there, Delilah, you be good, and don't you miss me
Two more years and you'll be done with school, and I'll be making history
Like I do, you'll know it's all because of you
We can do whatever we want to
Hey there, Delilah, here's to you
This one's for you

/ D - F#m - / / Bm - G A Bm - / G A Bm - / / A - /


What you do to me
