Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Silver tongued devil and i  Kris Kristofferson

I t[C]ook myself down to the T[C7]ally Ho Tavern
To [F]buy me a bottle of [C]beer
I [F]sat myself down by a [C]tender young [Am]maiden
Who's [F]eyes were as dark as her [G7]hair
And [C]while I was searching from [C7]bottle to bottle
For [F]something un-foolish to [C]say
That [F]silver tounged devil just [C]slipped from the [Am]shadows
And [F]smilingly [G7]stole her [C]away
chorus: I said [F]girl don't you know he's a [C]devil
        [F]He's everything that I [C]ain't
        [F]Hiding intentions of [C]evil [Am]under the [F]smile of a [G7]saint
        All he's [F]good for is getting in [C]trouble
        And [F]slipping his share of the [C]blame
        And [F]some people swear he's my [C]double
        And [F]some even say we're the [G7]same
        But the [F]silver-tounged devil's got [C]nothing to lose
        And [F]I'll only live 'till I [C]die
        We [F]take our own chances and [C]pay our own [Am]dues
        The [F]silver tounged [G7]devil and [C]I

Like all the young ladies who've laid down beside him
She knew in her heart that he lied
But nothing that I could have said could have saved her
No matter how hard that I tried
'Cause she'll offer her soul up to darkness and danger
Of a world that she's never known
And open her arms at the smile of a stranger
Who'll love her and leave her alone

Repeat chorus

Glenn Estes
