I Washed My Face In The Morning Dew

Song Author Tom T. Hall Performer: Don Gibson Submitted by: Anonymous

[C]The first strange town [F]I was ever [C]in  
The county was [G7]hanging a [C]man  
Nobody cared if [F]he lived or [C]died
And I just didn't [G7]under[C]stand

So I [F]washed my face in the [C]morning dew
[F]Bathed my soul in the [C]sun  
[F]Washed my face in the [C]morning [Am]dew   
[C]And kept on [G7]moving [C]along

The second strange town [F]that I was [C]in  
They were laughing at a [G7]poor crippled [C]man  
Begging for nickels and [F]dimes on the [C]street
I just didn't [G7]under[C]stand

The third strange town [F]that I was [C]in  
Was settled [G7]peaceful and [C]nice
The rich got richer the [F]poor got [C]poorer
And to me it [G7]didn't seem [C]right

So I [F]washed my face in the [C]morning dew
[F]Bathed my soul in the [C]sun  
[F]Washed my face in the [C]morning [Am]dew   
[C]And kept on [G7]moving [C]along

Well some times are [F]bound to [C]change
A change [G7]can't be very [C]far  
And each injustice [F]I have [C]seen
Shall come [G7]before the [C]bar  

So I [F]washed my face in the [C]morning dew
[F]Bathed my soul in the [C]sun  
[F]Washed my face in the [C]morning [Am]dew   
[C]And my journey [G7]will be [C]done
And my journey [G7]will be [C]done


The first strange town I was ever in
The county was hanging a man
Nobody cared if he lived or died
And I just didn't understand

So I washed my face in the morning dew
Bathed my soul in the sun
Washed my face in the morning dew
And kept on moving along

The second strange town that I was in
They were laughing at a poor crippled man
Begging for nickels and dimes on the street
I just didn't understand

The third strange town that I was in
Was settled peaceful and nice
The rich got richer the poor got poorer
And to me it didn't seem right

So I washed my face in the morning dew
Bathed my soul in the sun
Washed my face in the morning dew
And kept on moving along

Well some times are bound to change
A change can't be very far
And each injustice I have seen
Shall come before the bar

So I washed my face in the morning dew
Bathed my soul in the sun
Washed my face in the morning dew
And my journey will be done
And my journey will be done
