Silver Tongued Devil And I

I took myself down to the tally-ho tavern to buy me a bottle of beer
I sae me down by a tender young maiden
Whose eyes were as dark as her hair
And as i was searchin' 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 a 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
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 tongued devil's got nothing to lose
I'd only live till 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
But nothing that i could have said could've 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
I said hey little girl...
