The Silver Tongued Devil And I (LP Version) - Kris Kristoffersen

I took myself down to the Tally Ho Tavern,

To buy me a bottle of beer.

 

And I sat me down by a tender young maiden,

Who's eyes were as dark as her hair.

 

And as I was searching from bottle to bottle,

For something un-foolish 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 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 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'll only live 'til 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.

 

Nothing that I could have said could have saved her

No matter how hard that she tried.

 

'Cos she'll offer her charms

to the darkness and danger,

Of somethin' 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.

 

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 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'll only live 'til I die.

 

We take our own chances and pay our own dues,

 

The silver tongued devil and I.
