The Carpenter
By Randy Travis

Capo 3


G             G/F#         Em   
He was just a carpenter by trade
   C                            G          D
He learned from his father at a very early age.
G                   G/F#           Em
There was something special in the man, 
         C                                G       C        G
There was much more to his life than just working with his hands and He'd say 
D
There's no home I could design that would match the one you'd find
D
When you leave this world behind, if you only took the time.


Chorus:
G                   G/F#      Em                                C
Love your neighbor like your brother treat your brother like a friend
                      D                            G
Always turn the other cheek help the weary and the weak
G                 G/F#      Em                     C
Make the time for young and old and as your life unfolds
                          D
Each kindness that you've shown 
     D
Will be the nails and hammers as you build your final ladder 
                                  G
In the manner of the carpenter of old 


You could feel compassion in his eyes
Only fools that hurt him did not realize
That he was speaking to us all
The righteous and the mighty, the silent and the small and He'd say 
There's no home I could design that would match the one you'd find
When you leave this world behind, if you'd only take the time

Chorus

He was just a carpenter by trade.
He learned from his father at a very early age.
