Three Wooden Crosses3-crd  Randy Travis

A farm[D]er and a teacher, a ho[Bm]oker and a preacher,[G]
ridin' on a
midnight bus, [D]bound for Mexi[A]co.
One was hea[D]ded for vacation, one for h[Bm]igher education,
[and]     [G]two of them were sea[A]rchin' for lost s[D]ouls.
That driv[Em]er never, ever saw the stops[A]ign, and[Em]
eighteen-
wheelers can't stop on a d[A]ime.
Chorus:
            [D]                        [Bm]There are three wooden crosses on the right side of
the highway.
Why[G] there's not four of them [D]heaven only [A]knows.
I guess it's n[D]ot what you take when you l[Bm]eave this
world behind you.
It's wh[G]at you leave be[A]hind you when you [D]go.
Verse 2:
That f[D]armer left a harvest, a[Bm] home and eighty acres,
a [G]faith and love for
growin' things [D]in his young son's [A]heart.
And that [D]teacher left her wisdom in the [Bm]minds of lots
of children
and [G]did her best to [A]give'm all a [D]better start.
And that [Em]preacher whispered, "Can't you see the[A]
promised land?"
as he laid his [Em]blood-stained Bible in that hooker's[A]
hand.
Chorus
Bridge:
           [Bm]               [A]          [Em]That's the story that our preacher told last Sunday,
as he
[D]held that blood-stained [A]Bible up for all of us to see.
  He said,"Bless the [Bm]farmer and the [A]teacher and the[G]
preacher
who gave this Bi[Em]ble to my m[D]ama, who [A]read it to me."
Chorus:
            [D]                        [Bm]There are three wooden crosses on the right side of
the highway.
Why[G] there's not four of them [D]now I guess we [A]know.
I guess it's n[D]ot what you take when you l[Bm]eave this
world behind you.
It's wh[G]at you leave be[A]hind you when you [D]go.
            [D]           [A]             [Bm]There are three wooden crosses on the right side of
the
[D]highway.
