[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  G                 A                  Bm
Yes you do, Time Square can’t shine as bright as you, 
             A
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    G            A                Bm 
Close your eyes, Listen to my voice it’s my disguise, 
            A
I’m by your side. 


[Chorus]

D                      Bm  D                      Bm     A
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, 
               D
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    G              A               Bm
We'll have it good, We'll have the life we knew we would, 
           A
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   G            A                  Bm
I’d write it all, Even more in love with me you’d fall, 
             A
We’d have it all. 


[Chorus]

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


[Final Chorus]

D                      Bm  D                      Bm    A
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, 
               D
What you do to me. 
   Bm   D    Bm    D    Bm   D    Bm   D D
Ohhh

Just look at another jab for the picking pattern, but this tab is still completely correct and has all the words and tells you when to change. 5 stars for sho.
