Here's a basic outline (chords, riffs, lyrics) for the godly song
we know as Delilah. I started a full powertab thing, with bass, piano,
vocal line, etc. but I am simply too lazy to finish it.
The song is in 6/4 with a triplet feel.


   Am    Am/G         D7/F#        D/F#
1. Lady Delilah - she enslaves me

   F             Ab             Eb    Db  G
   I'm bound and chained by her lies   Lies

   Cm              Cm/Bb        F/A
   One look in her eyes and she breaks me

         Ab             G
   And I fall down like rain

          Ab             G
   As the wind sings her name

Chorus:

   Dm    G        Em    A
   Ohhhhhohhhhhh  Ohhhhhohhhhh

   F#m     B      Em    A
   Ohhh  Delilah  Ohhhhhohhhh

   D         C             B
   I was the strongest man alive

   A#             E            A    Bb/A (below x2)
   Till you came along - my Delilah

  E|-----5-5----5-5-|---6-6-x--------|
  B|-----5-5----5-5-|---6-6-x--------|
  G|-----6-6----6-6-|---7-7-x--------|
  D|----------------|----------------|
  A|--0-------0-----|-0--------------|
  E|----------------|---------0-3-6--|


2. She deceived me but believe me it was alright
   To touch her lips was to kiss the blades of her knives
   Why do things we know are wrong feel so right?
   Worth a lifetime of pain
   For one night to sing her name
   Oh, Delilah…
   I was the strongest man alive
   Till you came along - my Delilah

SOLO: (too lazy to figure it out note-for-note... improvise :))

             Ab           G
   Well I'll never be the same

             Ab                     G
   Cause that girl - yeah, she's to blame

             Ab      G
   How could I love again

             Ab            G
   Since she took my heart away.

   (see below for this next part)
   And then someone said her name
   And I tore at my flesh to dull the pain of the sound
   And ripped from the chains and the walls came down
   And I lay covered and bound

                         E
   And I called out her name…
