# Title Duration
1 Play Look Away (N. Meade, B. Russell)
All alone
Standing here by myself
And my girl is walking right down the street with someone else
There's not a place that I can run in a town this size
So I just better look away
I said I better look away
I said I better look away before she sees the tears in my eyes
He's so close
The girl I knew so well
With the eyes and the lips and the skin
That I know so well
I know they both want to look at me,
If I smile, that's a poor disguise
I just better look away
I said I better look away
I said I better look away before she sees the tears in my eyes
There they go, and I wonder if either one of them is wise
That when I look away
I said I when I look away
I said when I look away
Did she see the tears in my eyes?

Keep on runnin'

Everyone is laughing at me
Makes me feel so sad
Keep on runnin'

8 Play I Washed My Hands In Muddy Water (J. Babcock)
I was born in Macon, Georgia, met my dad in a Macon jail
He said, "Son, if you keep your hands clean
You won't have them bloodhounds on your trail"
I fell in with bad companions, robbed a man in Tennessee
Sheriff caught me way up in Nashville
And they locked me up and they threw away the key
Refrain:
I washed my hands in muddy water
I 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
I asked the jailer when my time's up, he said, "Son, we won't forget
If you try to keep your hands clean
We may make a good man of you yet."
I couldn't wait to do my sentence, I broke out of the Nashville jail
I just crossed the line of Georgia
And I can hear those bloodhounds on my trail
Refrain (2 times)
02:36
9 Play Since I Met You Baby (Ivory Joe Hunter)
Since I met you baby, my whole life has changed
Since I met you baby, my whole life has changed
And everybody tells me that I'm not the same
I don't need nobody to tell my troubles to
I don't need nobody to tell my troubles to
For since I met you baby, all I need is you
Since I met you baby, I'm a happy man
Since I met you baby, I'm a happy man
I'm gonna try to please you in every way I can
