Hey There Delilah - What A great song by The Plain White Ts

NOTE: some tabs use an F#m in the first 2 lines of the verse, I think the Bm sounds
better.


[INTRO]

D  F#m  D  F#m


[VERSE 1]

D                         F#m
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, 
          Bm A G         A                      Bm              A
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. 


[CHORUS]

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


[VERSE 2]

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


[BRIDGE]

G                                          A
A thousand miles seems pretty far, But they’ve got planes, trains and cars,
D                                 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                                         Bm
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,  
D                                 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 history, 
          Bm A G                 A              Bm   A
Like I do,      You’ll know it's all because of you, 
G           A               Bm   A                   
We can do whatever we want to
G             A              Bm                   A
Hey there Delilah here's to you, This one’s for you. 


[CHORUS]

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

The A chord works fine everywhere he put it, because that's how the song goes, you're either singing in the wrong key or you just don't know what you're doing, and all of the chords are right so **** off.

in the opening and versesyou need to put F#m instead of Bm but good effort! i used this tab when i was first learing this song.
