Hey there, Delilah, what's it like in New York City?

I’m a thousand miles away, but girl tonight you look so pretty,

I’m by your side.

But just believe me girl, someday, I'll pay the bills with this guitar,

We'll have it good,  we'll have the life we knew we would,

Hey there Delilah, I've got so much left to say,

If every simple song I wrote to you, would take your breath away, 
             Bm  A G            A                  Bm
I'd write it all,  even more in love with me you'd fall, 
             A
We'd have it all.

Bridge:
G                                      A
A thousand miles seems pretty far, but they've got planes and trains and cars, 
D                                 Bm   A
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   A
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  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.

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

    Hi Ben,

    This is a new world to me. I never knew there are sites only about chords. I am illiterate when it comes to music.

    good job!

      Hi Khalfan. Yes, there are sites providing only chords. Mine is not one of them. You can also find guitar lessons, reviews and guides here.
