I took myself down to the Tally Ho Tavern,
5  -5  -5 6 -6 6   -5  6 
To buy me a bottle of beer.
 4 -6 -6  -6  -6  6 -5  6  6    6   -5  5
And I sat me down by a tender young maiden, 
 4     4    4   4   4   -3  4   -4 
Who's eyes were as dark as her hair.

And as I was searching from bottle to bottle,
 5   -5   -5  6   -6 6   -5  6  
For something un-foolish to say.
 6   -6 -6    -6    -6 6   -5     6     6    6   6  -5    
That silver tongued devil just slipped from the shadows,
 5  -4 -4  5   -5    5  -4 4
And smilingly stole her away.

I said: "Hey, little girl, 
 4    -3"  4    -4   4  -4  5
don't you know he's the devil.

"He's everything that I ain't.

"Hiding intentions of evil,

"Under the smile of a saint.

"All he's good for is getting in trouble,
  6   -6  -6  -6   -6   6  -5    6
"And shiftin' his share of the blame.

Like all the fair maidens who've laid down beside him,
 5   -5  -5  6   -6    6    -5   6
She knew in her heart that he'd lied.
-6 -6    -6 -6   6    -5   6     6    6    -5    5
Nothin' that I could have said could have saved her, 
4   4  4   4   4    -3   4   -4
No matter how hard that she tried.
  6    -5   5  5   5    5    -4  4   6   6    6   6 -5
'Cos she'll offer her charms to the darkness and danger,
5   -5  -5    6    -6   6 -5    6
Of somethin' that she's never known.
 6 -6 -6 -6   -6  6  -5    6   6  6  6  -5
And open her arms at the smile of a stranger,
  5     -4  -4   5   -5    5  -4 4
Who'll love her and leave her alone.

And you know, he's the devil.

He's everything that I ain't.
