Hey there Delilah, What’s it like in New York City? 
      	D                                            F#m
I’m a thousand miles away, But girl tonight you look so pretty,

Yes you do, Time Square can’t shine as bright as you, I swear it’s true.              
D                            	      F#m
Hey there Delilah, Don’t you worry about the distance, 
          	   D                                  	            F#m
I’m right there if you get lonely, Give this song another listen, 
                 Bm/A    G                  A                      Bm 			A
Close your eyes, Listen to my voice it’s my disguise, I’m by your side.

Oh it’s what you do to me, Oh it’s what you do to me, 
D                         A      Bm  D                         A     Bm            
Oh it’s what you do to me, Oh it’s what you do to me, 
                 Bm     D
What you do to me.

D                         		F#m
Hey there Delilah, I know times are getting hard, 
           D                                    		  F#m
But just believe me girl some day, I'll pay the bills with this guitar, 
                Bm/A    G              	A               	Bm		 A
We'll have it good, We'll have the life we knew we would. My word is good.
D                           	      F#m   
Hey there Delilah, I’ve got so much left to say, 
               D                                 		F#m
If every simple song I wrote to you, Would take your breath away, 
             Bm/A  G            	      A                  	        Bm			A
I’d write it all. Even more in love with me you’d fall. We’d have it all.

CHORUS
D                          A     Bm  D                         A      Bm
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, 


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

VERSE 3
D                        		F#m
Hey there Delilah you be good, And don’t you miss me, 
         	     D                                         		F#m
Two more years and you’ll be done with school, And I'll be making hist’ry, 
     Bm/A    G                 	  A                   Bm
Like I do, You’ll know it's all because of you, 
G             	A               Bm
We can do whatever we want to, 
G           	      A                         Bm                         A
Hey there Delilah here's to you. This one’s for you.

Oh it’s what you do to me, Oh it’s what you do to me, 
D                         A      Bm  D                         A     Bm            
Oh it’s what you do to me, Oh it’s what you do to me,

What you do to me.
