0:30:390:30:43

# I said, you know that's a shame

0:30:510:30:55

# Yeah, that's a low down, dirty shame

0:30:550:31:02

# Mmm, if you didn't want me, honey

0:31:080:31:11

# Mmm, I wish I had never knowed your name. #

0:31:120:31:18

# Did you hear about that man of mine?

0:32:120:32:16

# Talkin' about his rise to fame

0:32:160:32:20

# I met him as his record rose

0:32:210:32:24

# Jim Salter was his name

0:32:240:32:28

# He sang his songs to black eyed girls

0:32:290:32:32

# His movements gettin' kinda slow

0:32:320:32:36

# He opened his hand and he grabbed my heart

0:32:370:32:40

# With the help of Cupid's b-oo-oo-w

0:32:400:32:45

# Who-oo-aa, never again

0:32:460:32:49

# With the devil, I la-aa-y

0:32:500:32:53

# Whoa, never, never, never again

0:32:540:32:57

# With his evil touch he stole my soul

0:32:590:33:03

# I was a servant to his sin

0:33:030:33:07

# He made me clean the dirt off his old brown boots

0:33:080:33:11

# Each time he went out ramblin'

0:33:110:33:14

# His selfish love won't touch me, tough

0:33:150:33:19

# Cos I'll be homeward bound

0:33:190:33:22

# His lyin' and double-timin' is gonna fall on stony ground

0:33:230:33:31

# Whooo-hoo, hoo

0:33:410:33:43

# Whoo-aa, never again

0:34:320:34:35

# With the devil I lay

0:34:360:34:39

# Whoa, never, never, never again

0:34:400:34:43

# Down the road in the mornin' light my sunken eyes can see

0:34:440:34:52

# As long as the drunken shadow moves

0:34:530:34:56

# Big Salter's comin' for me

0:34:560:35:00

# The selfish love won't touch me, though

0:35:000:35:04

# Cos I'll be homeward bound

0:35:040:35:07

# His lyin' and double-timin' Is gonna fall on stony ground

0:35:080:35:16

# Whoo-oo-aa, never again

0:35:170:35:20

# With the devil I lay

0:35:220:35:25

# Whoa, never, never, never, never, never again. #
