Samson Guitar Chords The Statler Brothers

[Intro]
G       Am7


[Verse 1]
D                       G
  Oh, Samson, it's been said you were a mighty man
                                               D
I've heard it said you killed a lion with your hands
             G                               B7
And when the people of Philistia raised your Ire
      A                                   D
Ain't you the man who set their fields on fire?


[Verse 2]
             G
You faced an army of Philistines all alone
                                              D
And didn't you tear at their flesh with just a bone?
   G                                            B7
So tell me, Samson, if these things I hear are true
              G           D               G
How could you let a woman get the best of you?


[Verse 3]
G
I've heard it said you were the best of many men
                                      D
That you could tear a city gate right off it's hinge
             G                                      B7
And that the strongest rope just could not hold you bound
    A                              D
And you completely tore one temple down


[Verse 4]
              G
How could you let yourself get caught in such disgrace?
G                                          D
 You got the best of every man you ever faced
        G                             B7
And after all the mighty enemies you slew
                  G           D
How could you let a women get the best of you?


[Interlude]
G      G      G     G     Am7


[Verse 5]
D                   G
You've battled many a man till he has turned and fled
                                                D
Then turned around and let a woman turn your head
                    G                                 B7
You loved the best, of man, but you were bound to fall
           A                                D
By the very thing that you loved best of all


[Chorus]
D                G
Oh, Samson, it's been said you were a mighty man
G                                              D
And women were your weakness, this I understand
              G                             B7
But after all the mighty armies you went through
              G
How could you let a woman get the best of you?


[Chorus]
G
Oh, Samson, it's been said you were a mighty man
                                            D
And women were your weakness, this I understand
              G                             B7
But after all the mighty armies you went through
              G               D               G     G     B7
How could you let a woman get the best of you?
                  G               D         G     B7   G
How could you let Delilah get the best of you?
