I WASHED MY FACE IN THE MORNING DEW (Tom T. Hall) Tom T. Hall - 1967 Bobby Bare & The Hillsiders - 1967 Mel Tillis - 1968 Liz Anderson - 1968 Jean Shepard - 1968 Porter Wagoner & Dolly Parton - 1968 Dave Dudley - 1968 Roy Rogers - 1970 Don Gibson - 1970 Judy Mayhan - 1970 Henson Cargill - 1970 The Osborne Bros. - 1972 The Stonemans - 1977 Nothin' Fancy - 2006 Also recorded by: Johnny Cash; Margo; Rita Rose. The first strange town I was ever in The county was hangin' 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 movin' along The second strange town that I was in They were laughin' at a poor crippled man Beggin' 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 movin' along The third strange town that I was in Was settled, peaceful and nice The rich got richer and 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 movin' 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 Then my journey will be done (Contributed by Mel - September 2010)
