Rivers Johnny – Muddy Water tab
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.
