    Lyrics

    (Tom T. Hall)

    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 I was ever in
    They were laughing at a poor crippled man
    Begging for nickels and dimes on the street
    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 third strange town I was ever in
    Seemed settled peaceful and nice
    The rich got richer and the poor got poorer
    And to me that 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.

    Someday times are bound to change
    It can't be very far
    And each injustice I have seen
    Will come before the bar.

    Then I'll wash my face in the morning dew
    Bathe my soul in the sun
    Wash my face in the morning dew
    And my journey will be done...
