Silver Tongued Devil And I  Kris Kristofferson

I t[G]ook myself down to the T[G7]ally Ho Tavern
To [C]buy me a bottle of [G]beer [G7]
I [C]sat myself down by a [G]tender young [Em]maiden
Who's [A7]eyes were as dark as her [D7]hair

And [G]while I was searching from [G7]bottle to bottle
For [C]something un-foolish to [G]say [G7]
That [C]silver tounged devil just [G]slipped from the [Em]shadows
And [D7]smilingly stole her [G]away

        I said Hey little [C]girl don't you know he's a [G]devil [G7]
        [C]He's everything that I [G]ain't [G7]
        [C]Hiding intentions of [G]evil [Em]....[A7]under the smile of a [D7]saint
        All he's [C]good for is getting in [G]trouble [G7]
        And [C]slipping his share of the [G]blame [G7]
        And [C]some people swear he's my [G]double [Em]
        And [A7]some even say we're the [D7]same
        But the [C]silver-tounged devil's got [G]nothing to lose [G7]
        And [C]I'll only live 'till I [G]die [G7]
        We [C]take our own chances and [G]pay our own [Em]dues
        The [D7]silver tounged devil and [G]I

Like a[G]ll the young ladies who've l[G7]aid down beside him
She [C]knew in her heart that he [G]lied [G7]
But [C]nothing that I could have s[G]aid could have [Em]saved her
No [A7]matter how hard that I t[D7]ried

'Cause she'll [G]offer her soul up to [G7]darkness and danger
Of a [C]world that she's never [G]known [G7]
And [C]open her arms at the [G]smile of a [Em]stranger
Who'll [D7]love her and leave her [G]alone

        I said Hey little [C]girl don't you know he's a [G]devil [G7]
        [C]He's everything that I [G]ain't [G7]
        [C]Hiding intentions of [G]evil [Em].... [A7]under the smile of a [D7]saint
        All he's [C]good for is getting in [G]trouble [G7]
        And [C]slipping his share of the [G]blame [G7]
        And [C]some people swear he's my [G]double [Em]
        And [A7]some even say we're the [D7]same
        But the [C]silver-tounged devil's got [G]nothing to lose [G7]
        And [C]I'll only live 'till I [G]die [G7]
        We [C]take our own chances and [G]pay our own [Em]dues
        The [D7]silver tounged devil and [G]I  [Em]
        The [D7]silver tounged devil and [G]I... [C]... [G]
