The Silver Tongued Devil and I



I took myself down to the Tally-Ho Tavern
To buy me a bottle of beer
I sat me down by a tender young maiden
Whose eyes were as dark as her hair.

And as I was searchin' from bottle to bottle
For something unfoolish to say
That silver tongued devil just slipped from the shadows
And smilingly stole her away.

I said hey little girl don't you know he's a devil
He's everything that I ain't
Hidin' intentions of evil
Under the smile of a saint.

All he's good for is gettin' in trouble
And shiftin' his share of the blame
And some people swear he's my double
And some even say we're the same.

But the silver tongued devil's got nothing to lose
I'd only live till I die
We take our own chances and pay our own dues
The silver tongued devil and I.

Like all the fair maidens who've laid down beside him
She knew in her heart that he'd lied
But nothing that I could've said could've saved her
No matter how hard that she tried.

'Cause she'll offer her charms to the darkness and danger
Of something that she's never known
And open her arms at the smile of a stranger
Who'll love her and leave her alone.

And you know he's a devil
He's everything that I ain't
Hidin' intentions of evil
Under the smile of a saint.

All he's good for is gettin' in trouble
And shiftin' his share of the blame
And some people swear he's my double
And some even say we're the same.

But the silver tongued devil's got nothing to lose
I'd only live till I die
We take our own chances and pay our own dues
The silver tongued devil and I...
