Three Wooden Crosses

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,
An' two of them were searchin' for lost souls

Didnt say about the hooker afterwords other than the bible in her hands. I think the important ones stood out the most. The idea is to understand the meaningful notion towards the fact that when or if you go its what you leave behind. Makes you think about life, thanks for the reminder Randy. I do think your forever and ever song is a tad creepy and came out during a really bad time when ted was trying to do this the hard way. He did not understand, or want to understand his crewl intentions bef

This song leaves me wondering what happened to the driver. Did he survive? Wouldn't he get a wooden cross too?

This reminds me of my friend. She got in a really bad wreck. And the doctor thought she was ganna die. She is now out of the hospital after a long 3 months. She is still having trouble moving her left hand and she is in therapy for another month and she won't be returning to BYU-Idaho this semester but she is doing better than she was at first. I'm just thankful that she is still alive. :)

I know ya'll getting tired of my theories but I dont care!- When I was young I was told- If you enjoy doing something no matter how small(other people might laugh at you!) You would still enjoy doing it even if you'd have to do it for free! I believe that!- I believe Randy is that kinda artist!- You can tell!-It's In His Heart!!!

OMG!- Again some artists just stop me in my tracks!- He's one of them!- When I like a song I dont think of catergory!- I just feel something in my soul!- There are alot of good singer out here but something is missing!(Not about making money!-You have to enjoy it!)!

His mother was the hooker. The preacher in the beginning handed her the bible after the crash. He "saved" her!!
