This version of Hey There Delilah is for the people who don't like bar 
chords (like me)! I take no credit for working out the actual notes 
because I used another tab that was tabbed by kevith (a link to his tab is 
at the bottom); all I did was figure out how to play it without bar chords.

The chords above the tab are the chords that would be played without a 
capo and are still the chords being played just in a different way.

I've added lyrics underneath the lines and synced up the words with where
the different chords begin.


Capo on the 2nd fret.
