Three Wooden Crosses
Recorded by Randy Travis
Written by Kim Williams and Doug Johnson

C Am
A farmer and a teacher a hooker and a preacher
F C G7
Ridin' on a midnight bus bound for Mexico
C Am
One was headed for vacation one for higher education
F G7 C
And two of them were searchin' for lost souls
Dm G7
That driver never ever saw the stop sign
Dm G7
And eighteen wheelers can't stop on a dime

C Am
There are three wooden crosses on the right side of the highway
F C G7
Why there's not four of them heaven only knows
C Am
I guess it's not what you take when you leave this world behind you
F G7 C
It's what you leave behind you when you go

Am
That farmer left a harvest a home and eighty acres
F C G7
The faith and love for growin' things in his young son's heart
C Am
And that teacher left her wisdom in the minds of lots of children
F G7 C
Did her best to give 'em all a better start
Dm G7
And that preacher whispered can't you see the Promised Land
Dm G7
As he laid his blood-stained bible in that hooker's hand

Repeat #2

Am F
That's the story that our preacher told last Sunday
C G7
As he held that blood stained bible up for all of us to see
Am F
He said bless the farmer and the teacher and that preacher
Dm G7
Who gave this Bible to my momma who read it to me

C Am
There are three wooden crosses on the right side of the highway
F C G7
Why there's not four of them now I guess we know

C Am
It's not what you take when you leave this world behind you
F G7 C
It's what you leave behind you when you go
Am G7 C
There are three wooden crosses on the right side of the highway
