Cue Sheet

BREAK    Basic

All 4 ladies promenade go once around the ring
Come on home and give your own a swing
Join all of your hands and circle left
Left allemande and weave around the set
*I'm just a hobo passing through
Dosado and promenade you do
I'm gonna wash my face in the morning dew
And then I'll be moving along


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads promenade halfway around the ring
Sides square thru 4 hands I sing
Swing thru you do, boys run right
Bend the line, go forward up and back
Pass thru, wheel & deal, square thru 3 hands
Swing the corner maid and promenade
I'll wash my face in the morning dew
And then I'll be moving along


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*I find a handout in every town

*I'm gonna wash my face in the morning dew

I Washed My Face In The Morning Dew
 
 

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 I was in
They were laughing at a poor crippled man
Begging for nickels and dimes on the street
And I just didn't understand

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 just 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

Some day things 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 keep on movin' along

Lyrics by Tom T. Hall.
