Intro: C, Em

C                           Em
Hey there Delilah, this is your ex-boyfriend Sampson,
       C                                         Em
And I know you thought that lifting weights, made me so buff and handsome,
          Am     (Pi E)F            G         Am                 G           
You were wrong, it's 'cuz I let my hair grow long, it makes me strong,

C                           Em
Hey there Delilah, you came in while I was sleeping,
        C                            Em
And I didn't feel you cutting and I didn't hear you creeping
         Am(Pi E)F         G                 Am                   G 
out the door, You left my hair piled on the floor, while I just snored

C                       Am   C                Am
Oh, it's what you did to me, Oh, while I was asleep,
C              Am   C                      Am
Oh, I'm a Nazarene, Oh, but you shaved me clean,
Delilah you're so mean

   F                                 G
I Killed a lion, big and mean, and slaughtered many Philistines, 
     C                                  Am
All with a donkey's jaw bone, that's no lie,
    F                                 G
But now I'm chained up to a wall, and I can't cry no tears at all,
     C                                   Am
Because the came and gouged out both my eyes...
 F                                         G
Why'd you grab those clippin' shears, and shave my head like Britney Spears,
      C                               Am
'Cuz now I'm standing hear in total shame, 
Delilah, you're to blame

 C                         Em                              
Hey there Delilah, why did you have to deceive me? 
          C                            Em                        Am
It's so hard for me to think, not long ago I wanted you to be my bride,
(Pi E)F             G                Am     
     But you took too much off the sides, 
(Pi E)F            G             Am
     Hey there Delilah when you die,
(Pi E)F              G             Am
     Just tell the devil, I said "hi", 
He'll know why

Chorus 2:
C                       Am   C                 Am
Oh, it's what you did to me, Oh, Now I'm up a creek,
C                  Am   C                  Am
Oh, now I feel so weak, Oh, I look like a freak,
Delilah, you're a geek...
