Lyrics of 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 searching 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 the 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 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 nothin' 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
Nothin' 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
Hidin' 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 nothin' to lose
I'll only live 'til I die
We take our own chances and pay our own dues ah ha
The silver tongued devil and I
