Subject: Three Wooden Crosses--Randy Travis

This is my no capo version of the song. I don't know
how right it is but it sounds good.
-brooks

Verse 1:
      D                     Bm                    G
A farmer and a teacher, a hooker and a preacher,
ridin' on a 
              D             A
midnight bus, bound for Mexico.
           D                          Bm
One was headed for vacation, one for higher education,
and 
G                   A                D
two of them were searchin' for lost souls.
         Em                          A        Em
That driver never, ever saw the stopsign, and
eighteen-
                          A
wheelers can't stop on a dime.
 
Chorus:
            D                         Bm              
 
There are three wooden crosses on the right side of
the highway.
   G                         D           A
Why there's not four of them heaven only knows.
              D                          Bm
I guess it's not what you take when you leave this
world behind you.
       G              A                 D
It's what you leave behind you when you go.

Verse 2:
      D                      Bm 
That farmer left a harvest, a home and eighty acres, 
  G
a faith and love for
               D                  A
growin' things in his young son's heart.
         D                              Bm     
And that teacher left her wisdom in the minds of lots
of children 
    G               A            D
and did her best to give'm all a better start.
         Em                                     A  
And that preacher whispered, "Can't you see the
promised land?"
               Em                                   A
as he laid his blood-stained Bible in that hooker's
hand.
 
Chorus
      
Bridge:
           Bm             A                  Em       
            
That's the story that our preacher told last Sunday,
as he
D                       A
held that blood-stained Bible up for all of us to see.
 
                   Bm             A               G
He said,"Bless the farmer and the teacher and the
preacher
                Em         D        A            
who gave this Bible to my mama, who read it to me."

Chorus:
            D                         Bm              
 
There are three wooden crosses on the right side of
the highway.
   G                         D              A
Why there's not four of them now I guess we know.
              D                          Bm
I guess it's not what you take when you leave this
world behind you.
       G              A                 D
It's what you leave behind you when you go.
            D          A              Bm              
 
There are three wooden crosses on the right side of
the 
D
highway.
