Three Wooden Crosses Song Lyrics

A farmer and a teacher, a hooker and a preacher

Ridin’ on a midnight bus bound for Mexico

One’s headed for vacation, one for higher education

And two of them were searchin’ for lost souls

That driver never ever saw the stop sign

And eighteen wheelers can’t stop on a dime..

******

There are three wooden crosses on the right side of the highway

Why there’s not four of them, Heaven only knows

I guess it’s not what you take when you leave this world behind you

It’s what you leave behind you when you go..

*****

That farmer left a harvest, a home and eighty acres

The faith and love for growin’ things in his young son’s heart

And that teacher left her wisdom in the minds of lots of children

Did her best to give ’em all a better start

And that preacher whispered, “Can’t you see the Promised Land?”

As he laid his blood-stained bible in that hooker’s hand…

******

There are three wooden crosses on the right side of the highway

Why there’s not four of them, Heaven only knows

I guess it’s not what you take when you leave this world behind you

It’s what you leave behind you when you go…

******

That’s the story that our preacher told last Sunday

As he held that blood-stained bible up

For all of us to see

He said “Bless the farmer, and the teacher, and the preacher

Who gave this Bible to my mama

Who read it to me”

******

There are three wooden crosses on the right side of the highway

Why there’s not four of them, now I guess we know

It’s not what you take when you leave this world behind you

It’s what you leave behind you when you go

There are three wooden crosses on the right side of the highway…

Three Wooden Crosses Song Chords


A FARMER AND A TEACHER, A HOOKER AND A PREACHER, RIDING ON A MIDNIGHT

BUS, BOUND FOR MEXICO. ONE WAS HEADED FOR VACATION, ONE FOR HIGHER

EDUCATION, AND TWO OF THEM WERE SEARCHING FOR LOST SOULS.


THAT DRIVER NEVER EVER SAW THE STOP SIGN, AND EIGHTEEN WHEELERS

CAN’T STOP ON A DIME.


THERE ARE, THREE WOODEN CROSSES ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE HIGHWAY.

WHY THERE’S NOT FOUR OF THEM, HEAVEN ONLY KNOWS. I GUESS IT’S NOT WHAT YOU

TAKE, WHEN YOU LEAVE THIS WORLD BEHIND YOU, IT’S WHAT YOU LEAVE BEHIND YOU

WHEN YOU GO.


THAT FARMER LEFT A HARVEST, A HOME AND EIGHTY ACRES. THE FAITH AND

LOVE FOR GROWING THINGS, IN HIS YOUNG SON’S HEART. AND THAT TEACHER LEFT

HER WISDOM, IN THE MINDS OF LOTS OF CHILDREN, DID HER BEST TO GIVE THEM ALL

BETTER START.


AND THAT PREACHER WHISPERED, CAN’T YOU SEE THE PROMISED LAND? AS HE

LAY HIS BLOOD-STAINED BIBLE IN THAT HOOKERS HANDS.


THERE ARE, THREE WOODEN CROSSES ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE HIGHWAY.

WHY THERE’S NOT FOUR OF THEM, HEAVEN ONLY KNOWS. I GUESS IT’S NOT WHAT YOU

TAKE, WHEN YOU LEAVE THIS WORLD BEHIND YOU, IT’S WHAT YOU LEAVE BEHIND YOU

WHEN YOU O.


THAT’S THE STORY THAT OUR PREACHER TOLD LAST SUNDAY, AS HE HELD HIS

BLOOD-STAINED BIBLE UP, FOR ALL O US TO SEE. HE SAID BLESS THE FARMER, AND

TEACHER, AND THAT PREACHER. WHO GAVE THIS BIBLE TO MY MOMMA, WHO READ IT TO ME.


THERE ARE, THREE WOODEN CROSSES ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE HIGHWAY.

WHY THERE’S NOT FOUR OF THEM, NOW I GUESS WE KNOW. IT’S NOT WHAT YOU

TAKE, WHEN YOU LEAVE THIS WORLD BEHIND YOU, IT’S WHAT YOU LEAVE BEHIND YOU

WHEN YOU O.


THERE ARE, THREE WOODEN CROSSES ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF… THE HIGHWAY.
