Wash My Hands
Well I was born in Macon Georgia
They kept my dad in the Macon jail
Now my daddy said son if you keep your hands clean
You won't hear those bloodhounds on your trail

I fell in with bad companions
We robbed a bank in Tennessee
The sheriff caught me way up in Nashville
They locked me up and threw away the key

Washed my hands in muddy water
I said washed my hands but they didn't come clean
Well, I tried to do what daddy told me
But I must have washed my hands in a muddy stream

And I asked the jailor now when's my time up
He said son we won't forget
But if you try hard to keep your hands clean
Well we may make a good man of you yet

Well, I washed my hands in muddy water
I said washed my hands but they didn't come clean
Well, I tried to do what daddy told me
But I must have washed my hands in a muddy stream

Well, I washed my hands in muddy water
I said washed my hands but they didn't come clean
Well, I tried to do what daddy told me
But I must have washed my hands in a muddy stream

I couldn't wait to do my sentence
So I broke out of that Nashville jail
Well now I'm out down in, down in Georgia
And I can hear bloodhounds on my trail

Well I washed my hands in muddy water
I washed my hands but they didn't come clean
I tried to do what daddy told me
But I must have washed my hands in a muddy stream

Well I washed my hands in muddy water
I washed my hands but they didn't come clean
I tried to do what daddy told me
But I must have washed my hands in a muddy stream
