There's a cross on the highway where the tragic wreck occurred
And I lost y two friends taken to a better world
Oh there's stop signs and there's curves
But the one we got to observe
Always bow your head and pray anytime, night or day
Whenever you see a cross on the side of the highway

Now Derrick Thomas was a champion no one can deny that
He led the Alabama Crimson Tide in all time total sacks
But his heart was even bigger than all his natural skill
He always helped kids in the city and you know what
I think he always will
Now my buddy Mike Tellis was a good man everyone loved him so
He took care of his dear father 'til he too was called to go
How my little girl cried when we all got the dreaded news
She said but Daddy Derrick and Mike will always be with us
Don't children always tell the truth

I never paid no attention anytime I passed one by
Oh but now I say a prayer because now I know why
There's a cross on the highway where the tragic wreck occurred
And I lost my two good friends taken to a better world
Oh there's stop signs and curves but the one we must observe
Always bow your head and pray anytime night or day
Whenever you see a cross on the highway
I saw it in the morning paper we hear it on the evening news
A mother, a child, a family life sometimes can be mighty cruel
So God help us through these troubled times
And please bless us with peace of mind
There's just a shell there in the grave for the soul has flown away

There's a cross on the highway where the tragic wreck occurred
And I lost my two good friends taken from this mean old world
Oh there's warning signs and curves but the one we must observe
Always bow your head and pray, anytime night or day
Whenever you see a cross on the highway

Always bow your head and pray, anytime night or day
Whenever you see a cross on the highway
