The Carpenter Recorded by Randy Travis, Waylon Jennings and Jessi Colter Written by Randy Travis, Ron Avis, Chip Taylor
G D7 Em He was just a carpenter by trade C G D7 He learned from His Father at a very early age G D7 Em There was something special in the Man D7 C There was much more to His life G C G Than just working with His hands
D7 And He'd say there's no home I could design
That would match the one you'd find
When you leave this world behind
If you only took the time
G D7 Em Love your neighbor like your brother C Treat your brother like a friend D7 Always turn the other cheek G Help the weary and the weak D7 G Make the time for young and old
D7 Em And as your life unfolds C G D7 Each kindness that you've shown G D7 Em Will be the nails and hammers D7 C As you build your final ladder G C G In the manner of the Carpenter of old
D7 Em You could feel compassion in His eyes C G D7 But only fools that hurt Him did not realize G D7 Em That He was speaking to us all D7 C The righteous and the mighty G C G The silent and the small
D7 Em And He'd say there's no home I could design C G D7 That would match the one you'd find G D7 Em When you leave this world behind G D7 G If you'd only take the time
D7 Em He was just a carpenter by trade C G He learned from His Father at a very early age
