Lyrics and Music by Tom Higgenson


Intro: D5 | F#m | D5 | F#m

D5                            F#m
Hey there, Delilah, what’s it like
In New York City?
      D5
I’m a thousand miles away,
             F#m
But, girl, tonight you look so pretty,
         Bm  Bm7 
Yes, you do.
G                  A                  Bm
Times Square can’t shine as bright as you.
             A     A5
I swear it’s true.

Hey there, Delilah, don’t you worry
About the distance,
I’m right there. If you get lonely,
Give this song another listen.
Close your eyes,
Listen to my voice, it’s my disguise.
I’m by your side.

Chorus:
     D5                      Bm       
     Oh, it’s what you do to me,
     D5                      Bm       
     Oh, it’s what you do to me.
     D5                      Bm       
     Oh, it’s what you do to me,
     D5                      Bm
     Oh, it’s what you do to me,
                    D5      
     What you do to me.

Hey there, Delilah, I know times
Are getting hard,
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.
My word is good.

Hey there. Delilah, I’ve got so much
Left to say.
If every simple song I wrote to you
Would take your breath away,
I’d write it all.
Even more in love with me, you’d fall.
We’d have it all.

Chorus:
     Oh, it’s what you do to me,
     Oh, it’s what you do to me.
     Oh, it’s what you do to me,
     D5                      Bm  Bm7 
     Oh, it’s what you do to me.

Bridge:
     G
   A thousand miles seems pretty far,
       A
   But they’ve got planes and trains and cars.
       D5
   I’d walk to you
                     Bm   Bm7 
   If I had no other way.
       G
   Our friends would all make fun of us,
       A
   And we’ll just laugh along because
      D5
   We know that none of them
                  Bm   Bm7 
   Have felt this way.

     G
   Delilah, I can promise you
        A
   That by the time we get through,
       Bm
   The world will never, ever be the same,
                 A
   And you’re to blame.

Hey there, Delilah, you be good
And don’t you miss me.
Two more years and you’ll be done with school
And I’ll be making history,
Like I do,
G             A              Bm   Bm7 
You know it’s all because of you.
G             A        Bm      Bm7 
We can do whatever we want to.

G            A                Bm
Hey there, Delilah, here’s to you.
               A    A5
This one’s for you.

Chorus:
     Oh, it’s what you do to me,
     Oh, it’s what you do to me.
     Oh, it’s what you do to me,
     D5                      Bm
     Oh, it’s what you do to me.
                    D5
     What you do to me.

     D5   Bm
     Ooh, ooh,
           D5
     Whoa, ooh,
              Bm
     Who-oa, ooh.

     Bm    D5
     Ooh, ooh,
            Bm
     Whoa, ooh,

       Bm    D5
     Whoa, ooh,
          Bm
     O-ooh,
           D5      D
     O-ooh.
