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

[Chorus:]
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 his harvest
A hime 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 em all a better start
And that preacher whispered, "Can't you see the promise land?"
As he laid his blood stained bible in that hooker's hand

[Chorus:]
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 it takes 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 ...
Agreed.
This song is great musically as well.

Memento semper: curare debet unum de se. Neminem alius potest facere pro eum.
