#1.
Am                                                E     E7
I saw the light on the night that I passed by her window.  
Am                                          E    E7
I saw the flickering shadows of love on her blind.
A   A7     Dm   Dm7  Am                   E 
She was my woman.....as she deceived me I watched 
                   Am    G
and went out of my mind.

CHORUS:
C             G                 G7   B   C
My, my, my, Delilah...why, why, why, De..lilah?
C                 F                    Dm
I could see, that girl was no good for me..
C                     G                       C   E
But I was lost like a slave that no man could fr..ee.

#2.
Am                                             E      E7
At break of day when that man drove away I was waiting.
Am                                                   E  E7
I crossed the street to her house and she opened the door.
A   A7          Dm       Dm7   Am                     E   
She stood there laughing.......I felt the knife in my hand,
                   Am  G
and she laughed no more.

CHORUS:
C             G                 G7   B   C
My, my, my, Delilah...why, why, why, De..lilah?
C               F                      Dm
So, before they come to break down the door..
   C                 G                      C   E
forgive me Delilah I just couldn't take any more.

(INTERLUDE:)

#3.
A   A7          Dm       Dm7   Am                     E   
She stood there laughing.......I felt the knife in my hand,
                   Am  G
and she laughed no more.

CHORUS:
C             G                 G7   B   C
My, my, my, Delilah...why, why, why, De..lilah?
C               F                      Dm
So, before they come to break down the door..
   C                 G                      C   E
forgive me Delilah I just couldn't take any more.

OUTRO:
