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

Repeat #3,4

D7 Em
He was just a carpenter by trade
C G
He learned from His Father at a very early age
