Kristofferson KrisSilver Tongue Devil Текст

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

Chorus:
C G
I said girl don't you know he's a devil
C G
He's everything that I ain't
C G Em C D7
Hiding intentions of evil 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
And some people swear he's my double
C D7
And some even say we're the same
C G
But the silver- tongued 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
C D7 G
The silver tongued devil and I

G G7
Like all the young 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
C D7
No matter how hard that I tried
G G7
'Cause she'll offer her soul up to darkness and danger
C G
Of a world that she's never known
C G Em
And open her arms at the smile of a stranger
C D7 G
Who'll love her and leave her alone

Repeat chorus
