A simpler version of hey There Delilah.
Pick 2nd string then 5th string over and over again.
Enjoy.



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                                    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                             Bm
Close your eyes, Listen to my voice it’s my disguise, 
             A
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, 
               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                               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                               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
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, 

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                                           
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                                Bm
Like I do, You’ll know it's all because of you, 
G                          Bm
We can do whatever we want to, 
G                           Bm                  A
Hey there Delilah here's to you, This one’s for you. 

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

Lack of accuracy. Clearly wrong.

Clearly wrong. None of the chords match to the song even remotely, it's been made far too basic and doesn't resemble the original song

Lack of accuracy. The chords are wrong. The fingering is correct for if you were to do C Em with capo on 3. this is pretty close, but not right. keep trying!
