Intro:   C   Em7   Am   Am7/G

C                     Em7   Am                    Am7/G
A farmer and a teacher,   a hooker and a preacher
F                        C             G 
ridin' on a midnight bus bound for Mexico
        C                  Em7       Am               Am7/G
One was headed for vacation, one for higher education
    F                G                  C
and two of them were searchin' for lost souls
     Dm                         G
That driver never ever saw the stop sign
    Dm                                Gsus   G
and eighteen-wheelers can't stop on a dime.


          C            Em7
There are three wooden crosses,
       Am                Am7/G
on the right side of the highway
F                             C           G
Why there's not four of them, Heaven only knows
            C              Em7 
I guess it's, not what you take 
         Am                Am7/G
when you leave this world behind you
     F                G                 C
It's what you leave behind you when you go


C                         Em7   Am                    Am7/G
That farmer left a harvest,   a home and eighty acres
    F
the faith and love for growin' things
C                 G
in his young sons heart
         C                      Em7
And that teacher left her wisdom
       Am                        Am7/G
in the minds of lots of children
F                       G            C
Did her best to give'em all a better start
         Dm
And that preacher whispered,
                    G
"Can't you see that promised land?"
      Dm
as he laid his bloodstained bible
       Gsus     G      
in that hookers hand

          C            Em7
There are three wooden crosses
       Am                Am7/G
on the right side of the highway
F                             C           G
Why there's not four of them, Heaven only knows
             C             Em7
I guess it's, not what you take 
         Am                Am7/G
when you leave this world behind you
     F                G                 C
it's what you leave behind you when you go


           Am             Am7/G              F
That's the story that our preacher told last Sunday,
      C
as he held that bloodstained bible up
    G
for all of us to see
        Am                Am7/G
He said, bless the farmer, and the teacher,
F                 F/E
and that preacher
    Dm                               Gsus       G  Gsus  G
Who gave this Bible to my Momma, Who read it to me


Chorus:

          C            Em7
There are three wooden crosses
       Am                Am7/G
on the right side of the highway
F                            C               G
why there's not four of them, now I guess we know
C                 Em7
It's not what you take, 
         Am                Am7/G
when you leave this world behind you,
     F                G                 C
It's what you leave behind you when you go

C                      Em7
There are three wooden crosses
       Am         Am7/G  C
on the right side of the highway

When you come to the bridge, you have it as Am, Am7/G, F; when is supposed to be Am, G, F.
