Kris Kristofferson - Silver Tongued Devil And I chords version 1

C C7I took myself down to the Tally Ho Tavern
F CTo buy me a bottle of beer
F C AmAnd I sat myself down by a tender young maiden
D G G7With eyes as dark as her hair
C C7And as I was searching from bottle to bottle
F CFor something un-foolish to say
F C AmThe silver tongued devil he slipped from the shadows
G G7 CAnd smiling he stole her away
F C I said hey, little girl, don't you know he's the devil
F C He's everything that I ain't
F C Am D G Hiding intentions of evil, under the smile of a saint
F C All he's good for is getting in trouble
F C And shifting his share of the blame
F C Some people swear he's my double
D G And some even say we're the same
F C But the silver-tongued devil's got nothing to lose
F C I'll only live 'till I die
F C Am We take our own chances, we'll pay our own dues [pause}
G G7 C F C The silver tongued devil and I
C C7Like all the young maidens who'd laid down beside him
F C She knew in her heart that he'd lied
F C Am But nothing that I could have said could have saved her
D G G7 No matter how hard that I tried
C C7 'Cause she'll offer charms to the darkness and danger
F C Of something that she's never known
F C Am And open her arms to the smile of a stranger
G G7 CWho'll love her and leave her alone
F C And you know, he's the devil
(rest of chorus as above)
