Written In Stone Song Lyrics and Chords by Randy Travis

 

Written In Stone
Recorded by Randy Travis
Written by Don Schlitz and Mac McAnally
C 
I’m gonna take you down to the riverside
Where the water runs slow and wide
 
There’s a  
F 
big ole rock out in the middle
And I took my hammer and chisel
 
And  
C 
worked all night so you could see
Just how much you mean to me
 
I  
F 
carved your name right next to mine
And it’ll be there till the end of time
 
And  
G7 
my love will  
Dm 
last at least that  
G7 
long
C 
It’s written in  
F 
stone how I feel for you
 
It’s written in  
C 
stone what I want to do
 
Spend my  
F 
life and life  
A#7 
hereafter loving  
C 
you
 
And darling if we  
F 
live to be a hundred
 
Or if we don’t  
C 
make it half that  
Dm 
long
 
I want you to know what I feel for  
A#7 
you
 
Is written in  
C 
stone
There’s a place on the edge of town
When I was a kid I found
 
Two  
F 
names on a stone together
Lying side by side forever
 
And  
C 
it was then and there I knew

If I ever thought our love was true

F 
I’d surely want to write it down

On something that would be around

 
When  
G7 
all the spoken  
Dm 
words have come and  
G7 
gone
Repeat #3
 
And  
G7 
when this  
Dm 
life has come and  
G7 
gone

Our love will still be

Repeat #3

 
I want you to  
Dm 
know what I feel for  
A#7 
you
 
Is written in  
C 
stone
A#7 
Written in  
C 
stone it’s  
A#7 
written in  
C 
stone

Who is Randy Travis?
– Randy Bruce Traywick (born May 4, 1959), known professionally as Randy Travis, is an American country music and gospel music singer, songwriter, guitarist, and actor.Active from 1978 until being incapacitated by a stroke in 2013, he has recorded 20 studio albums and charted more than 50 singles on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts, including sixteen that reached the No. 1 position. Considered a pivotal figure in the history of country music, Travis broke through in the mid-1980s with the release of his album Storms of Life, which sold more than four million copies. The album established him as a major force in the neotraditional country movement. Travis followed up his successful debut with a string of platinum and multi-platinum albums. He is known for his distinctive baritone vocals, delivered in a traditional style that has made him a country music star since the 1980s.
By the mid-1990s, Travis saw a decline in his chart success. In 1997, he left Warner Bros. Records for DreamWorks Records and then for Word Records, where he began recording more Christian material. Although the career shift produced only one more number-one country hit “Three Wooden Crosses”, Travis went on to earn several Dove Awards, including Country Album of the Year five times. Since his stroke, which severely limited his singing and speaking ability, he has released archival recordings and made limited public appearances. In addition to his singing career, he pursued an acting career, appearing in numerous films and television series, including The Rainmaker (1997) with Matt Damon, Black Dog (1998) with Patrick Swayze, Texas Rangers (2001) with James Van Der Beek, National Treasure 2 (2007) and seven episodes of the Touched by an Angel television series.
Travis has sold over 25 million records and has won seven Grammy Awards, six CMA Awards, eleven ACM Awards, 10 AMA Awards, eight GMA Dove Awards, and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. In 2016, Travis was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame.
