The Carpenter-crd  Randy Travis

       [C]                             [F] [G]He was just a carpenter by trade,  he learned from his father at a very
early age
  [C]                               [G7]   [C] [F]There was something special in the man,  there was much more to his life
Than just workin[C]' with his[G] hands, a[C]nd He'd say...
[G7]"There's no home I could design
That would match the one you'll find
When you leave this world behind
If you'll only take the time..[G] [G7]
C C7.
To love your neighbour like your brother,
Treat your brother like a friend,[F]
                                   [G] [C]Always turn the other cheek, help the weary and the weak
Make the time for young and old, and as your life unfolds
Each kindness that you've shown[G]
[G7]Will be the nails and hammer as you build your final ladder
In the manner of the carpenter of old."[C]
You c[C]ould feel compassion [G7]in his eyes[C]
[F]But only those who hurt him did not realize[G]
[C]That he was speaking t[G7]o us all[C]
The righte[F]ous and the mighty, the silent and the sm[C]all,[G] [C]
And he'd say...
(Repeat chorus)
He was just [C]a carpenter by trade,
[F]He learned from his father at a very early age.[G] [C]
