The Silver Tongued Devil 
Written and recorded by Kris Kristofferson
[3/4 time]

G G7
I took myself down to the Tally Ho Tavern
C G
To buy me a bottle of beer
C G Em
And I sat myself down by a tender young maiden
A7 D7
Whose eyes were as dark as her hair

G G7
And as I was searching from bottle to bottle
C G
For something un-foolish to say
C G Em
That silver tongued devil just slipped from the shadows
A7 D7 G
And smilingly stole her away

C G
I said hey little girl don't you know he's a devil
C G
He's everything that I ain't
C G Em
Hiding intentions of evil
A7 D7
Under the smile of a saint

C G
All he's good for is getting’ in trouble
C G
And shifting his share of the blame
C G Em
And some people swear he's my double
A7 D7
And some even say we're the same

C G
But the silver-tonged devil's got nothing to lose
C G
And I'll only live 'till I die
C G Em
We take our own chances and pay our own dues
D7 G
The silver tonged devil and I


Like all the fair ladies who've laid down beside him
C G
She knew in her heart that he lied
C G Em
But nothing that I could have said could have saved her
A7 D7
No matter how hard that she tried

G
Cause she'll offer her charms to the darkness and danger
C G
Of something she's never known
C G Em
And open her arms at the smile of a stranger
A7 D7 G
Who'll love her and leave her alone

C G
And you know he’s the devil
C G
He's everything that I ain't
C G Em
Hiding intentions of evil
A7 D7
Under the smile of a saint

C G
All he's good for is getting’ in trouble
C G
And shifting his share of the blame
C G Em
And some people swear he's my double
A7 D7
And some even say we're the same

C G
But the silver-tonged devil's got nothing to lose
C G
And I'll only live 'till I die
C G Em
We take our own chances and pay our own dues
D7 G
The silver tonged devil and I
