[Verse]
C
Hey there Delilah,
          Em
What’s it like in New York City?
      C
I’m a thousand miles away,
         Em
But girl tonight you look so pretty,
        Am   G
Yes you do,
F                 G                  Am
Time Square can’t shine as bright as you,
             G
I swear it’s true.


[Verse]
C
Hey there Delilah,
          Em
Don’t you worry about the distance,
          C
I’m right there if you get lonely,
          Em
Give this song another listen,
           Am   G
Close your eyes,
F            G                Am
Listen to my voice it’s my disguise,
            G
I’m by your side.


[Chorus]
C                      Am
Oh it’s what you do to me
C                      Am
Oh it’s what you do to me
C                      Am
Oh it’s what you do to me
C                      Am
Oh it’s what you do to me
               C
What you do to me.


[Verse]
C
Hey there Delilah,
       Em
I know times are getting hard,
         C
But just believe me girl some day,
             Em
I'll pay the bills with this guitar,
              Am   G
We'll have it good,
F              G               Am
We'll have the life we knew we would,
           G
My word is good.


[Verse]
C
Hey there Delilah,
         Em
I’ve got so much left to say,
         C
If every simple song I wrote to you,
      Em
Would take your breath away,
             Am   G
I’d write it all,
F            G                Am
Even more in love with me you’d fall,
             G
We’d have it all.


[Chorus]
C                      Am
Oh it’s what you do to me
C                      Am
Oh it’s what you do to me
C                      Am
Oh it’s what you do to me
C                      Am
Oh it’s what you do to me


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


[Verse]
C                        Em
Hey there Delilah you be good, and don’t you miss me,
         C
Two more years and you’ll be done with school,
    Em
And I'll be making history,
       Am   G
Like I do,
F                G              Am   G
You’ll know it's all because of you,
F             G       Am      G
We can do whatever we want to,
F         G                 Am   G
Hey there Delilah here's to you,
               G
This one’s for you.


[Chorus]
C                      Am
Oh it’s what you do to me
C                      Am
Oh it’s what you do to me
C                      Am
Oh it’s what you do to me
C                      Am
Oh it’s what you do to me


[Outro]
               C      Am
What you do to me, oh oh
    C       Am
Oh, oh, oh, oh
    C       Am
Oh, oh, oh, oh
    C       Am
Oh, oh, oh, oh
    C   C~
Oh, oh,
