3 Wooden Crosses  Randy Travis

[C]A farmer and a teacher[Em7],   a [Am]hooker and a preacher [Am7/G]
[F]ridin' on a midnight bus [C]bound for Mexi[G]co
One was [C]headed for vacation[Em7], one for [Am]higher education [Am7/G]
and [F]two of them were [G]searchin' for lost [C]souls
That [Dm]driver never ever saw the s[G]top sign
and [Dm]eighteen-wheelers can't stop on a [Gsus]dime.  [G]


Chorus:

There are [C]three wooden [Em7]crosses,
on the [Am]right side of the [Am7/G]highway
[F]Why there's not four of them, [C]Heaven only [G]knows
I guess it's[C], not what you [Em7]take
when you [Am]leave this world b[Am7/G]ehind you
It's [F]what you leave be[G]hind you when you [C]go

Verse 2:

[C]That farmer left a harvest[Em7],   a [Am]home and eighty acres [Am7/G]
the [F]faith and love for growin' things
[C]in his young sons [G]heart
And that [C]teacher left her wisdom[Em7]
in the [Am]minds of lots of children [Am7/G]
[F]Did her best to give'em [G]all a better [C]start
And that [Dm]preacher whispered,
"Can't you see that [G]promised land?"
as he [Dm]laid his bloodstained bible
in that[Gsus] hookers [G]hand

Chorus:

There are [C]three wooden [Em7]crosses
on the [Am]right side of the [Am7/G]highway
[F]Why there's not four of them, [C]Heaven only [G]knows
I guess it's,[C] not what you [Em7]take
when you [Am]leave this world b[Am7/G]ehind you
it's [F]what you leave be[G]hind you when you [C]go

Tag:

That's the [Am]story that our [Am7/G]preacher told last [F]Sunday,
as he [C]held that bloodstained bible up
for [G]all of us to see
He said,[Am] bless the farmer,[Am7/G] and the teacher,
[F]and that preacher [F/E]
Who [Dm]gave this Bible to my Momma, Who [Gsus]read it to [G]me [Gsus]      [G]

Chorus:

There are [C]three wooden [Em7]crosses
on the [Am]right side of the [Am7/G]highway
[F]why there's not four of them,[C] now I guess we [G]know
[C]It's not what you [Em7]take,
when you [Am]leave this world b[Am7/G]ehind you,
It's [F]what you leave be[G]hind you when you [C]go

[C]There are three wooden [Em7]crosses
on the [Am]right side [Am7/G]of the [C]highway
