Three Wooden Crosses Lyrics

A farmer and a teacher, a hooker and a preacher
Ridin' on a midnight bus bound for Mexico
One was headin' for vacation, one for higher education
And two of them were searchin' for lost souls

That driver never ever saw the stop sign
And 18 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 80 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 lay 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 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 go

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

Question? Where is the bus driver? Did he live or die? And why didn't he get a cross? Randy Travis is prejudice against poor mexican bus drivers.

The preacher sow the word to the hooker, a testimony is this preacher who got the same via his mama, the hooker. The hooker survived.

When I heard that song for the first time, it made me cry .I reminded me that God is in control, no matter what happens. That's why I love this song.

For a bunch of Christians I'm surprised to see god and not God. And ajbart2, even though she was a hooker, how judgemental is that statement?
