Music I love at the moment...


Randy Travis
Three Wooden Crosses

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.
An' 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 an' love for growin' things in his young son's heart.
An' that teacher left her wisdom in the minds of lots of children:
Did her best to give 'em all a better start.
An' 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, an' the preacher;
"Who gave this Bible to my mamma,
"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.

Only God Could Stop Me Loving You

Written by R. J. Lange

We saw the moon in Colorado
Made music in Tennessee
We found the gold of El Dorado
It's so good, making love, you and me
These arms, they will never hold another
These eyes, they are blind to any other
These lips, no other girl will ever kiss
This heart, it will always feel like this 'cause

CHORUS
Only God could stop me loving you
Only God could tell me not to
He sent you from Heaven
Just to make my dreams come true
When he opened the door
That you came walking through
Only God could stop me loving you

Now we struck oil in Oklahoma
And won the Oscar in Hollywood
And climbed the canyons of Arizona
And baby, making love never felt so good
These arms, they will never hold another
These lips, no other girl will ever kiss
This heart, it will always feel like this 'cause

CHORUS

There aint no girl
In the whole wide world
Who could take away my heart
And there aint no man
Who could steal your hand
And tear us apart
But there is one God in Heaven above
Who gave me love
Strong enough to calm my heart

Only God could stop me loving you
Only God could tell me not to
Only God could stop me from loving you
Only God could tell me not to
