    I was born in Macon Georgia
    They kept my daddy over in Macon jail
    He told me if you keep your hands clean
    You won't hear them bloodhounds on your trail

    Well I fell in with bad companions
    Robbed a man, oh up in Tennessee
    They caught me way up in Nashville
    They locked me up and threw away the key

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

    Well I asked the judge now when's my time up
    He said son, oh you know we won't forget
    If you try just to keep your hands clean
    We might just make a good man of you yet

    Oh I couldn't wait to get my time up
    I broke out, broke out of Nashville jail
    I just crossed the state-line of Georgia
    Well I can hear those bloodhounds on my trail

    I washed my hands in muddy water
    Washed my hands, but they didn't come clean
    Tried to do what my daddy told me
