ACOUSTIC GUITAR, PIANO, A.R.P. SYNTHESIZER, AND VOCAL BY LINUS REDDING

 

I THINK OF MY FRIEND AND WHERE IT CAME TO AND END.

AH WHERE WE LAID HIM DOWN IN THE DESERT SAND.

AND NO MORE WILL I SEE HIM.

UNTIL I'M LAYING NEAR..


OH THIS WELL TRAVELED CROSS IT STANDS

OVER HIS HEAD

AND IT LIVES ETERNALLY

JUST LIKE HIM, I'M GOING HOME.


I THINK OF WHAT OUR COUNTRY HAS COME TO BE.

YOU CAN'T EVEN COUNT ON THE ONES WHO LEAD.

AND BETRAYING TRUST IN THEE.

THEY WANT TO TEAR DOWN.


BUT OUR WELL TRAVELED CROSS.

HAS COME TO BUILD THIS LAND.

AND WHAT IT'S STANDING FOR.

IT STANDS FOR THE FREEDOMS

THAT BELONG TO YOU AND ME.

AND THAT'S WORTH DYING FOR.


I LAY  ANOTHER IN THE SAND TODAY.

THOUGH HIS BODY IS NOT HERE.

BUT ABOVE HIS HEAD IS THAT WELL TRAVELED CROSS.

AND IT'S GUIDING HIM HOME AGAIN.


OH THAT WELL TRAVELED CROSS WE KNOW.

FROM LONG AGO, HAS COME TO HIM.

OH THAT WELL TRAVELED CROSS WE KNOW FROM LONG AGO

IT HAS COME TO HIM.


FOR THE BLOOD OF JESUS WHO TOOK AWAY ALL SINS

TOOK THEM AWAY AND WASHED US CLEAN.

AND I WILL FIGHT TO MY LAST BREATH.

TO KEEP OUR COUNTRY FREE......

 

OH THAT WELL TRAVELED CROSS IS HERE

IT'S BOUGHT OUR FREEDOM.

THAT WELL TRAVELED CROSS IS HERE

ABOVE HIS HEAD IN SOME FAR AWAY LAND.
