The Old Cross Road
recorded by Ricky Skaggs
written by Bill Monroe

O my brother take this warning
              D7              G
Don't let old Satan hold your hand
You'll be lost in sin forever
             D7                 G
You'll never reach the Promised Land
The old cross road now is waiting
             D7        G
Which one are you gonna take
One leads down to destruction
          D7            G
The other to the Pearly Gate
One road leads up to Heaven
              D7       G
The other one goes down below
Jesus our Savior will protect you
                D7               G
He'll guide you by the old cross road
Repeat #2
Soon your life will be over
                    D7          G
You'll have to face the old crossroads
Will you be ready then my brother
            D7                 G
To shun the one that goes down below
Repeat #2
