D D F#m F#m
Hey there Delilah, What?s it like in New York City?
D D F#m F#m
I?m a thousand miles away, But girl tonight you look so pretty,
Bm Bm G G A A Bm Bm A A
Yes you do, Time Square can?t shine as bright as you, I swear it?s true.
D D F#m F#m
Hey there Delilah, Don?t you worry about the distance,
D D F#m F#m
I?m right there if you get lonely, Give this song another listen,
Bm Bm G G A A Bm Bm A A
Close your eyes, Listen to my voice it?s my disguise, I?m by your side.

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

D D F#m F#m
Hey there Delilah, I know times are getting hard,
D D F#m F#m
But just believe me girl some day, I'll pay the bills with this guitar,
Bm Bm G G A A Bm Bm A A
We'll have it good, We'll have the life we knew we would, My word is good.
D D F#m F#m
Hey there Delilah, I?ve got so much left to say,
D D F#m F#m
If every simple song I wrote to you, Would take your breath away,
Bm Bm G G A A Bm Bm A A
I?d write it all, Even more in love with me you?d fall, We?d have it all.


A A thousand miles seems pretty far, But they?ve got planes, trains and cars,
D D Bm Bm
I?d walk to you if I had no other way.
Our friends would all make fun of us, And we'll just laugh along because,
D D Bm Bm
We know that none of them have felt this way,
Delilah I can promise you, That by the time that we get through,
D D Bm Bm A A
The world will never ever be the same ..... And you?re to blame!

D D F#m F#m
Hey there Delilah you be good, And don?t you miss me,
D D F#m F#m
Two more years and you?ll be done with school, And I'll be making history,
Bm Bm G G A A Bm Bm
Like I do, You?ll know it's all because of you,
G G A A Bm Bm
We can do whatever we want to
G G A A Bm Bm A A
Hey there Delilah here's to you, This one?s for you.

CHORUS (again)

The chords are right from what I can tell but they're not above the right words. Reorganise the chords and it would be great.
