Silver Tongued Devil And I

Kris Kristofferson

.
 GG7
I took myself down to the Tally Ho Tavern
 CGG7
To buy me a bottle of beer 
 CGEm
sat myself down by a tender young maiden
 A7D7
Who's eyes were as dark as her hair

 GG7
And while I was searching from bottle to bottle
 CGG7
For something un-foolish to say 
 CGEm
That silver tounged devil just slipped from the shadows
 D7G
And smilingly stole her away

 CGG7
        I said Hey little girl don't you know he's a devil 
 CGG7
        He's everything that I ain't 
 CGEmA7D7
        Hiding intentions of evil ....under the smile of a saint
 CGG7
        All he's good for is getting in trouble 
 CGG7
        And slipping his share of the blame 
 CGEm
        And some people swear he's my double 
 A7D7
        And some even say we're the same
 CGG7
        But the silver-tounged devil's got nothing to lose 
 CGG7
        And I'll only live 'till I die 
 CGEm
        We take our own chances and pay our own dues
 D7G
        The silver tounged devil and I

 GG7
Like all the young ladies who've laid down beside him
 CGG7
She knew in her heart that he lied 
 CGEm
But nothing that I could have said could have saved her
 A7D7
No matter how hard that I tried

 GG7
'Cause she'll offer her soul up to darkness and danger
 CGG7
Of a world that she's never known 
 CGEm
And open her arms at the smile of a stranger
 D7G
Who'll love her and leave her alone

 CGG7
        I said Hey little girl don't you know he's a devil 
 CGG7
        He's everything that I ain't 
 CGEmA7D7
        Hiding intentions of evil .... under the smile of a saint
 CGG7
        All he's good for is getting in trouble 
 CGG7
        And slipping his share of the blame 
 CGEm
        And some people swear he's my double 
 A7D7
        And some even say we're the same
 CGG7
        But the silver-tounged devil's got nothing to lose 
 CGG7
        And I'll only live 'till I die 
 CGEm
        We take our own chances and pay our own dues
 D7GEm
        The silver tounged devil and I  
 D7GCG
        The silver tounged devil and I... ...
