Delilah

Song Author Tom Jones Lyrics by: Tom Jones Performer: Tom Jones Submitted by: Anonymous
[Em]I saw the light on the night
that i passed by her [B7]window
[Em]i saw the flickering shadows
of love on her [B7]blind.
[E]She [E7]was my [Am] woman
[Em]as she deceived me
[B7]I watched and went out of my [Em] mind. [D7]    

[G7]My, my, my [D7]Delilah,
why, why, why [G]Delilah
i could [G7]see that [C]girl
was not good for [Am]me,   
[G]But i was lost like a [D7]slave
that no man could [G]free. [B7]    

[Em]At break of the day when that man
drove away i was [B7]waiting
[Em]i crossed the street to her house
and she opened the door. [B7]    
[E]She [E7]stood there [Am]laughing,
i [Em]felt the knife in my [B7]hand   
and she laughed no [Em]more. [D7]    

[G7]My, my, my [D7]Delilah,
why, why, why [G]Delilah
so [G7]before they [C]come
to break down the [Am]door,
[G]forgive me Delilah, i [D7]just   
couldn't take any [G]more.
[Em]Forgive me Delilah, [B7] i just
couldn't take any [Em]more. [Am]    [Em]    

I saw the light on the night
that i passed by her window
i saw the flickering shadows
of love on her blind.
She was my woman
as she deceived me
I watched and went out of my mind.

My, my, my Delilah,
why, why, why Delilah
i could see that girl
was not good for me,
But i was lost like a slave
that no man could free.

At break of the day when that man
drove away i was waiting
i crossed the street to her house
and she opened the door.
She stood there laughing,
i felt the knife in my hand
and she laughed no more.

My, my, my Delilah,
why, why, why Delilah
so before they come
to break down the door,
forgive me Delilah, i just
couldn't take any more.
Forgive me Delilah, i just
couldn't take any more.
