    I’m right there if you get lonely,

                    Em

    Give this song another listen,

                      Am (1½)  Am/G (½)

    Close your eyes,

    F (1)                  G (1)               Am

        Listen to my voice it’s my disguise,

                       G

    I’m by your side.

    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 (1½)  Am/G (½)

    We'll have it good,

    F (1)                G (1)                 Am

    We'll have the life we knew we would,

                       G

    My word is good.

     

    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 (1½)  Am/G (½)

    I’d write it all,

    F (1)                  G (1)                      Am

       Even more in love with me you’d fall,

                       G

    We’d have it all.

     

    Chorus

     

    Bridge:

           F

    A thousand miles seems pretty far,

             G

    But they’ve got planes and trains and cars,

          C (1½                      C/G (½)   Am (1½)  Am/G (½)              

    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 (1½)                                          C/G (½)   Am (1½)  Am/G (½)              

    We know that none of them have felt this way,

          F

    Delilah I can promise you,

            G

    That by the time we get through,

             Am (4)

    The world will never ever be the same,

                          G (4)

    And you’re to blame.

     

    C                                  

       Hey there Delilah you be

    Em

    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 (1½)  Am/G (½)  

    Like I do,

    F (1)                   G (1)            Am (1½)  Am/G (½)              

      You’ll know it's all because of you,

    F (1)                   G (1)        Am (1½)  Am/G (½)                                          

       We can do whatever we want to,

    F (1)             G (1)               Am

    Hey there Delilah here's to you,

    G (4)                         

    This one’s for you.
