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.

i disagree...
good tab and all but u need to look over ur A chord on some of the lines because it doesnt work. sometimes i replace it with a Bm or a D
but this is an okay chord distribution
nice work
