lyrics

Anne dear, you were my first
But you were not my last
For from you I kept no souvenir
Not the blood that you spilled
On the clothes that I burned
Or the dance shoes that you held so dear

I was named after saints but I won’t feel the pain
Of the cross, just the rope on my neck
It scratched and it burned
As I twisted and turned
And your face came to me one last time

Mrs Marion Watt
I despatched with one shot
That was business not pleasure for me
But young Vivienne you warmed
To my worldly charm
And took your last leave gracefully

I was named after saints but I won’t feel the pain
Of the cross, just the rope on my neck
It scratched and it burned
As I twisted and turned
And your face came to me one last time

Sergeant Muncie you came
With your dark hints of blame
But for you I’m too clever by half
Glasgow trembled indoors
As I took down four more
But good Muncie you had the last laugh

Yes my heart is black
Tell the devil to stack
More coals on his fire for me
Fifty years to the day
Since they sent me to sway
But my name still lives in memory

I was named after saints but I won’t feel the pain
Of the cross, just the rope on my neck
It scratched and it burned
As I twisted and turned
And your face came to me one last time

Anne dear, you were my first
But you were not my last
For from you I kept no souvenir
