3 wooden crosses
written by-- Kim Williams and Doug Johnson
On the album--Rise and Shine in 2002

Key of D   (NO CAPO)
  
[Verse 1] 
 D
A farmer and a teacher, a hooker and a preacher
G                         D          A
Riding on a midnight bus bound for Mexico
       D                              B
One was headed for vacation, one for higher education
     G                 A                   D
And two of them were searchin' for a lost souls
    G                        A
That driver never ever saw the stop sign
    G                                  A
And eighteen wheelers can't stop on a dime……..There are
 
[Chorus]
D
Three wooden crosses on the right side of the highway
G                               D           A
Why there's not four of them, heaven only knows
            D                          B
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
That farmer left a harvest, a home and eighty acres
   G                                D                   A
A faith and love for growin' things in his young son's heart
          D                             B
And that teacher left her wisdom in the mind's of lots of children
            G                 A            D
And did her best to give em' all a better start
          G                                     A
And that preacher whispered, "can't you see the promised land?"
              G                                   A
As he lay his bloodstained bible in that hooker's hand………There are
 
[Chorus] 
D
Three wooden crosses on the right side of the highway
G                               D           A
Why there's not four of them, heaven only knows
            D                          B
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 3]
           B               A                  G
That's the story that our preacher told last Sunday
       D                                   A
As he held that bloodstained bible up for all of us to see
                    B              A               G
He said, "bless the farmer and the teacher and the preacher"
              G                     A
Who gave this bible to my mama, who read it to me………..There are
 
[Chorus]
D
Three wooden crosses on the right side of the highway
G                               D           A
Why there's not four of them, heaven only knows
            D                          B
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
 
[Outro]
          D                            B                      D
There are, three wooden crosses on the right side of the highway
