Randy Travis - Three Wooden Crosses

One of Randy's more poignant recordings, "Three Wooden Crosses", from his album "Rise And Shine". Written by Doug Johnson and Kim Williams. A wonderful story song.

(Of course, the message is that we can ask why things turned out the way they did, doesn't seem fair. I don't want to give the story away to those who have not heard the song, but we get the answer in the end. God has His own plans. His thoughts are not our thoughts, His ways are not our ways.)

SPOILER ALERT FOR PEOPLE WHO HAVE NOT HEARD THE SONG



(I know someone's gonna ask this question, so I'll answer it in advance. "Shouldn't there be five wooden crosses?" No, because there is no indication that the bus driver or the truck driver died. It's not unreasonable to believe that, since if the hooker survived, then so might the drivers. Beside, the three wooden crosses are supposed to make us think of the three wooden crosses on Calvary, and "five wooden crosses" would destroy that connection.)
