The Silvertongued 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 searching from bottle to bottle

For something un-foolish to say

That silver tounged devil just slipped from the shadows

And smilingly stole her away


I said Hey, little girl don't you know he's the devil

He's everything that I ain't

Hiding intentions of evil under the smile of a saint

All he's good for is getting in trouble

And shifting his share of the blame

And some people swear he's my double

And some even say we're the same

But the silver-tounged devil's got nothing to lose

And I'll only live 'till I die

We take our own chances and pay our own dues

The silver tounged devil and I

Like all the fair maidens 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 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 the devil
