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.

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.
