Hey everybody, ive been working at Universal and just heard some new country/almost christian inspired music. Its mostly country by this singer Josh Gracin. I went to joshgracin.com to listen to some of his stuff and it was really good an inspiring. I highly recommend checking out some of his music at that site.

I like Josh Grasin. He's pretty good. There are quite a few Country songs right now that are Christian inspired. I love it. I swore I'd never succumb to liking Country music and now I love it~Heheh. Smiley

Country music havin' a spiritual side.  Who'dathunk it?!   Cheesy I personally love Randy Travis' 3 Wooden Crosses song.  I also like John Michael Montgomery's The Little Girl.  Then there's always Long Black Train by Josh Turner.  

Some real good stuff there.   Smiley

Another good one (1996) is Charlie Daniels' "Steel Witness".
My favorite song on that CD is New Pharisees...

They go walkin' into church every Sunday morning
They the self-appointed sin patrol
Well, they whisper and they gossip behind the back
Of anybody they can't control
See that girl in the choir, she's got evil desires
She must be drinking from the devil's well
She's a downright disgrace with that paint on her face
She looks just like a Jezebel
And they're running around putting everybody down
What are you trying to do
You need to pick up the Book and take another look
'Cause brother I've got news for you
You know Jesus was sent with a new covenant
And He even died for you
New Pharisees
Like a fatal disease
Always flapping your jaws
Trying to live by the law
You see that boy over there with that long shaggy hair
Ought to be ashamed of hisself
He wearin' hip-hop clothes, got a ring in his nose
Don't he know he goin' straight to hell
And then yesterday mornin'
Me and sister Johnson
Were talkin' on the party line
She said that Deacon Brown
Was havin' dinner downtown
Somebody seen him with a glass of wine
And you act so righteous and you look so pious
You always pay your tithe
But there's a rock in your heart
And a fire on your tongue
And there ain't no love in your eyes
Bad news is begotten and the devil is smilin'
You gossip and you criticize
Well, you can't get by the law
So quit flapping your jaws
New Pharisees
Yes, you're a lot like me

Like the Long Black Train.
Don't quite understand Three Wooden Crosses...

A farmer and a teacher, a...um...unsavory woman and a preacher. They are on a bus, bound for Mexico. All but the hooker dies.
Now. The bus is struck by another vehicle.  Maybe one of the four is driving the oncoming vehicle - but no, they're all on the bus, bound for Mexico. Is one of them the bus driver? Were there passengers in the other vehicle? And yet there are three wooden crosses...why there's not four of them, heaven only knows...shouldn't there be at least six?  Huh
The problem isn't over: was the hooker pregnant at the time with the boy who later becomes a preacher and tells this story?

Am I taking a good ol' song too far?

LOL @ Willowbirch!

YES!! Cheesy  Cheesy      Sorry, just kidding..... Lips Sealed

I thought it was because of the preacher's last words to her that she gave up her lifestyle to follow Christ and then became a mom and raised a godly son who became a preacher.  



Three Wooden Crosses
by: Randy Travis
 
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
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
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 and love for growin' things in his young son's heart
And that teacher left her wisdom
in the minds of lots of children
Did her best to give them all a better start
And 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

Yeah!  I always took it that there were 5 in the bus, the farmer, teacher, hooker, preacher and the driver, and then then truck driver makes six.  I always figured the farmer, teacher and preacher died and either the driver did too but nobody cared enough to put a cross there for him, or he lived and married the hooker who wasn't pregnant at the time, let alone saved, then the driver and former hooker get saved, have a child, who then grows up to be a preacher.  I figured the truck driver lived cause he had a big truck.  

Then again, I've been known to be overly analytical at times... Grin
