The first strange town I was ever in
Nobody cared if he lived or died

Bathed my soul in the sun
And kept on movin' along
The second strange town I was in
Begging for nickels and dimes on the street

Was settled, peaceful and nice
And to me it just didn't seem right
So I washed my face in the morning dew
Washed my face in the morning dew

It can't be very far
Will come before the bar
Then I'll wash my face in the morning dew
Wash my face in the morning dew
