Muddy Water:Johnny Rivers.
#19 in '66.

#1.
D                   A
I was down in Macon Georgia.
                                 D
They kept my daddy over in Macon jail.
                            G
He told me if you keep your hands clean.
D                   A                   D
You won't hear them bloodhounds on your trail.
#2.
D                        A
Well, I fell in with bad companions.
                                D
Robbed a mail train up in Tennessee.
                         G
They caught me way up in Nashville.
         D                A              D
and they locked me up and threw away the key.

CHORUS:
D                          A
I washed my hands in muddy water.
                                        D
I washed my hands, but they didn't come clean.
                            G
I tried to do what my daddy told me..
      D                   A                D
But I must have washed my hands in a muddy stream.
#3.
D                                        A
Well, I asked the jailer, now, when's my time up?
                                  D
He said son, you know we won't forget.
                             G
If you try just to keep your hands clean.
   D                 A               D
We might just make a good man of you yet.

#4.
E                             B
Oh, I couldn't wait to get my time in.
                             E
I broke out of the Nashville jail.
                        A
I just crossed Atlanta, Georgia,
    E                B                 E
and I can hear those bloodhounds on my trail.

CHORUS:(x2)
E                          B
I washed my hands in muddy water.
                                        E
I washed my hands, but they didn't come clean.
                            A
I tried to do what my daddy told me..
      E                   B                E
But I must have washed my hands in a muddy stream.


A sixties smash from Kraziekhat.
