The Carpenter  Randy Travis

The Carpenter
By Randy Travis
Capo 3
[G]He was just a [G/F#]carpenter by [Em]trade
He [C]learned from his father at a [G]very early [D]age.
[G]There was something [G/F#]special in the [Em]man,
There was[C] much more to his life than just [G]working [C]with his [G]hands and He'd say
[D]There's no home I could design that would match the one you'd find
[D]When you leave this world behind, if you only took the time.
[G]Love your neighbor l[G/F#]ike your b[Em]rother treat your brother like a f[C]riend
Always turn the other [D]cheek help the weary and the [G]weak
[G]Make the time for [G/F#]young and [Em]old and as your life un[C]folds
Each kindness that you've [D]shown
Will [D]be the nails and hammers as you build your final ladder
In the manner of the carpenter of [G]old
You could feel compassion in his eyes
Only fools that hurt him did not realize
That he was speaking to us all
The righteous and the mighty, the silent and the small and He'd say
There's no home I could design that would match the one you'd find
When you leave this world behind, if you'd only take the time
He was just a carpenter by trade.
He learned from his father at a very early age.
