Lyrics

A FARMER AND A TEACHER, A HOOKER AND A PREACHER RIDIN` ON A MIDNIGHT BUS, BOUND FOR MEXICO ONE WAS 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 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 ITS, NOT WHAT YOU TAKE, WHEN YOU LEAVE THIS WORLD BEHIND YOU ITS 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 AND DID HER BEST, TO GIVE THEM ALL A BETTER START AND THAT PREACHER WISPERED CAN`T YOU SEE THE PROMISED LAND AS HE LAYED HIS BLOOD STAINED BIBLE IN THAT HOOKERS HAND 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 ITS, NOT WHAT YOU TAKE, WHEN YOU LEAVE THIS WORLD BEHIND YOU ITS WHAT YOU LEAVE BEHIND YOU WHEN YOU GO THAT`S A 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 ITS NOT WHAT YOU TAKE, WHEN YOU LEAVE THIS WORLD BEHIND YOU ITS WHAT YOU LEAVE BEHIND YOU WHEN YOU GO THERE ARE, THREE WOODEN CROSSES ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE HIGHWAY
